Ms. Hockey Winners

Let's Play Hockey annually presents the Ms. Hockey Award to the top senior high school girls hockey player in the state of Minnesota. The award started in 1996. Academics, community service, citizenship, coachability and on-ice performance prove to be the criteria for this prestigious award. Since 1996, 15 recipients have signed with the Gopher women's hockey team. In 1999, an additional award, the Senior Goaltender Award, was added.
