BEMIDJI, Minn. –  Bemidji State University women’s hockey freshman Mak Langei earned her second Western Collegiate Hockey Association weekly award after being named the WCHA Defensive Player of the Week, Nov. 21.

Langei led the Beavers in scoring with three points (1g-2a) to help the Beavers earn two points against No. 5 Ohio State University this past weekend. The East Grand Forks, Minn., native began the weekend by posting her second career multi-point game with two assists in a 3-3 tie Friday and then scored a goal on Saturday in a 5-4 loss.

Langei tied for the lead league in scoring and also tied for second in the WCHA with six blocks over the weekend.

The freshman earned WCHA Rookie of the Week honors on Oct. 17 for her first career award and follows Erin Deters as consecutive Beavers to be named WCHA Defensive Player of the Week.

Langei leads the Beavers’ blueline with seven points (2g-5a) and leads the team in plus/minus (+5) and blocks (29).
