Head coach Brad Frost has announced Jordyn Burns has transferred to the University of Minnesota and will be joining the women's hockey team this fall. Burns, a defenseman who could also see ice time as a forward, will be a sophomore in 2012-13. She joins the Gopher program along with six freshmen who signed National Letters of Intent in November 2011.
"We are very excited to have Jordyn join the Gopher Family," said Coach Frost. "She is a smooth-skating player who has the ability to play both forward and defense for us. We look forward to having her be a part of our team as we try to repeat as National Champions."
Jordyn Burns played her freshman season at Syracuse University after a prep career at Benilde St. Margaret's High School. The Chanhassen, Minn., native played in all 35 games for the Orange last season, collecting two goals and eight assists for 10 points in her rookie campaign. She had one multiple-point game during the season, registering two assists against Lindenwood on Dec. 2. While at Benilde-St. Margaret's, Burns helped her team to four North Suburban Conference titles. As a senior, she was the Red Knights' top-scoring defenseman with 15 goals and 22 assists for 37 points, and led her team in plus/minus rating with a +48. She was a three-time All-North Suburban Conference honoree, and an All-State award winner.
