The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) women’s hockey team was picked to finish fourth in the WCHA behind the University of Wisconsin and Ohio State University, who share first place, and the University of Minnesota who is third.

The Bulldogs are coming off yet another impressive season in which they found their way into the NCAA tournament for the third straight year.

Along with the poll, UMD freshman goaltender Ève Gascon received votes for Preseason Rookie of the Year, and senior defender Nina Jobst-Smith received votes for the Preseason All-WCHA team.
