Records were broken and milestones were met Friday afternoon as the No. 5 University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) women’s hockey team downed Minnesota State University, Mankato at AMSOIL Arena.

The Bulldogs earned the 4-2 win over the Mavericks to improve to 15-8.

During the first shift fifth year forward Anna Klein broke the Bulldogs’ program record for consecutive games played with 148.

"It’s fun, I’m happy that this is something that I’ve been able to do for so long and I haven’t taken any of those game for granted," Klein said after the game.

Then during the win Gabbie Hughes surpassed 150 career points becoming just the tenth player ever to reach the milestone at UMD.

"I just can’t thank my linemates enough and the support my teammates have for me. I think just playing with two amazing teammates, players and people really helped get there," Hughes said about Klein and Elizabeth Giguere. "Can’t do it on your own, and that’s what I think about when I hear I got 150."

The Bulldogs had four different scorers with Hughes tallying three assists on the night. Bulldog netminder JoJo Chobak notched 27 saves.

UMD will hunt for the series sweep Saturday with puck drop set for 3:01pm at AMSOIL Arena.

For fans planning to attend, UMD is now requiring proof of vaccination or a negative Covid-19 test result from a third-party source not an at home test.
