Earlier this week Emma Soderberg made her return home to Minnesota from the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic games.

The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) senior goaltender is fresh off a run with Team Sweden where she unexpectedly took over the role of starter. In her breakout performance the senior tallied an Olympic high 167 total saves for a .912 save percentage, playing a big part in helping Sweden to the quarterfinals.

"Going into it I didn’t think I was going to be playing much and then I ended up playing all the games, which was a big experience," Soderberg said. "[It was] a different stage for me. A little bit more pressure but I think I grew into the tournament as it went on."

Soderberg will be available for the Bulldogs regular season finale series this weekend against St. Cloud State University.
