Fork in the road for US women’s hockey

in Sports by

The United States women’s hockey team is at a bit of a crossroads. Many of the players don’t want to play for the team anymore due to unequal pay in comparison to the men’s national team. USA hockey recently sent out a memo regarding the team’s issues and a statement from the executive director of USA hockey, Dave Ogrean. Ogrean had the following to say about the state of the team, “We remain committed to having the players that were selected to represent the U.S. in the upcoming women’s world championship to be the players that are on the ice when the tournament begins.” The women’s hockey team indicated the state of the team is the reason for their contempt. The players want to be fairly compensated for their play in the world tournament, including performance bonuses, per-game payments, travel for guests to games, roster bonuses and other benefits including…

Minnesota Duluth sweeps SCSU in weekend series

in SCSU Sports/Sports by

Friday The St. Cloud State women’s hockey team (5-11-1, 4-8-1-1 WCHA) took on No. 4 Minnesota Duluth’s (11-3-3, 8-3-2) for a weekend WCHA series at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center. Friday night, the Duluth Bulldogs defensive core dominated the ice and kept the Huskies at bay in a 3-0 shutout loss for SCSU. The score remained 0-0 going into the second, but that is when the Bulldogs would start to get some momentum going. About seven minutes into the period UMD senior forward Ashleigh Brykaliuk got the first goal past SCSU’s goaltender Janine Alder. A few minutes later Maria Lindh extended the lead 2-0 for the Bulldogs. The Huskies went 0-3 on the power play in Friday’s game, struggling to capitalize on the few goal chances they were able to get. The Huskies played well in the third, out-shooting UMD 6-5, but were unable to put the puck past…

Freshman Janine Alder’s phenomenal start

in SCSU Sports/Sports by

Hockey. Here in Minnesota, it’s taken very seriously. There is an entire day dedicated to an event where people from all over the state lace up their skates in celebration of the sport. The beautiful thing about hockey is that it is played all around the world, especially in Switzerland. St. Cloud State University was lucky enough to recruit one of those special players from Switzerland: a goalie named Janine Alder. Alder was a goalie on Switzerland’s national team when they took bronze in the 2014 Olympics in Russia. It was a special moment in Alder’s life. “It was great. I could never stop talking about it. Meeting all those big sports people and being on the same level as they are, it was just so fascinating,” Alder said. While Alder was in Sochi for the Olympics, she was able to meet her hero, New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist. It’s…

Friday St. Cloud State University would welcome the University of North Dakota to the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center to resume WCHA play for the Huskies. The game would start slow to begin as not much action would occur the first 10 minutes of the period. The Huskies wouldn’t get their first shot on goal until nearly 13 minutes into the game. Defenses on both sides would hold strong as both teams would kill a penalty in the first period. Huskies netminder Janine Alder would make 10 saves in the first period, Fighting Hawks goalie Lexie Shaw would have 6. The score would be tied at zero all heading into the first intermission. It would be a battle of special teams in the second period. Both teams would remain 100% on the penalty kill, but it was the penalty kill for the Fighting Hawks that would open the scoring. Sarah Lecavalier of…

Badgers sweep Huskies

in SCSU Sports/Sports by

Badgers versus Huskies, take two. After taking the loss yesterday, St. Cloud would turn to goaltender Taylor Crosby to man the pipes. The Badgers would come out strong early looking to control the pace of the game getting the puck deep in Huskies territory. The story of yesterday’s game was Wisconsin’s long stretches of puck possession dominance; however, the Huskies would write a different chapter for this one and get on the board first. Brittney Anderson would send the puck to Christa Moody behind the net who in turn would pass the puck across the crease back door to Hannah Potrykus, who would tap the puck home into the net for the Huskies first goal of the season. Giving the Huskies the lead at 1-0. It wouldn’t take long for the Badgers to bounce back, Sophia Shaver would come flying down the outside and fire a shot past Crosby to knot things up…

Huskies fall in WCHA Opener

in SCSU Sports/Sports by

It would be a tough test for the St. Cloud State Huskies right off the bat to start the season, a battle against USCHO’s number one team, the Wisconsin Badgers. The Huskies were swept by the Badgers last season, being outscored 13 to zero in four games. Things started off slow with both teams showing some rust after the time during the off-season. St. Cloud would attempt to strike first getting a shot on goal against Badger netminder Ann-Renée Desbiens, who would be a brick wall all game long. The Badgers would get the last laugh however, when a centering pass from Sarah Nurse to Sydney McKibbon, who would rip a shot that would find twine – putting the Badgers up 1-0 in the first. St. Cloud goaltender Madeleine Dahl would do her best to stand on her head and keep the Huskies in the game, until one fateful face off. The…
