Hogenson earns first WCHA Goaltender of the Month accolade

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – After a month that included her first collegiate shutout and featured a career-high 56 saves, Bemidji State University sophomore goaltender Hannah Hogenson has been named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association Goaltender of the Month for November. 

This is the first monthly accolade for the Anchorage, Alaska native and was twice named the WCHA Goaltender of the Week during November. 

Through five games during November, Hogenson posted a 2-3-1 record, .919 save percentage and totaled 181 saves to lead the Beavers in net. Hogenson and the Beavers face top-10 ranked opponents in four of the team’s five games including a career performance against No. 1 University Wisconsin, Nov. 6, where she stopped a career-high 56 shots in a 0-0 tie for her first collegiate shutout. 

Hogenson is the first BSU netminder to be named the league’s goalie of the month since Lauren Bench did so in December of 2019. 

Joining Hogenson was University of Minnesota’s Taylor Heise who was tabbed the forward of the month, Ohio State University’s Sophie Jaques as the defender of the month and Minnesota’s Peyton Hemp as the rookie of the month.

Hogenson and the rest of the BSU women’s hockey team resumes league play this weekend and will travel to St. Cloud State University for a two-game series, Dec. 3-4.

Nestled in Northern Minnesota’s wooden region and located on the shore of Lake Bemidji, BSU sponsors 15 varsity athletic programs with NCAA Division I men’s and women’s hockey membership in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association, while its 13 NCAA Division II programs hold membership in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference (NSIC).
