On Monday Gabbie Hughes was named Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) Forward of the Week, for the second time this season.

In the University of Minnesota Duluth’s (UMD) women’s hockey 4-3 overtime win over MSU-Mankato Friday she posted a goal and two assists, including the clutch third period goal to tie the game.

With 205 career points, Hughes is now one point away from tying the program’s fifth all-time scorer.

UMD, tying with the Mavericks Saturday and winning the shootout, would hold onto their No.7 ranking in the latest USCHO poll.

This weekend is their regular season home finale against No.12 St. Cloud State.
