The St. Cloud State Huskies women's hockey ice program represents St. Cloud State University, and participate in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.

History[edit]

In 2010, Felicia Nelson became the first Huskies player to be a Top 10 finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Award.[2] The club had a 15-14-8 overall record in 2009-10 and an 11-11-6 mark in the WCHA. The team finished the season in third place. This was the first time in school and league history that St. Cloud State was one of the top three schools in the standings.[3]

In the 2015-16 NCAA season, Katie Fitzgerald was the starting goaltender for the St. Cloud State University Huskies. She would lead all goaltenders in the WCHA conference in shots faced, appearing in 34 games played. Her final win on home ice at St. Cloud took place on February 12, as she made 39 saves in a win against North Dakota, besting All-America goaltender Shelby Amsley-Benzie.
