Alex Rigsby named WCHA Defensive Player of the Week

Senior captain Alex Rigsby - Nicole Haase

It's the second weekly award this year for the senior captain.

Senior captain and goalkeeper Alex Rigsby allowed just one goal against conference foe Minnesota-Duluth last weekend, earning her WCHA Defensive Player of the Week honors.

Rigsby faced 38 shots over the course of the two games and recorded her fourth shutout of the season (27th career) on Sunday. She kept the Bulldogs scoreless over all six of their power plays, helping lift Wisconsin to a 93 percent penalty kill, good for second in the nation.

She leads the nation in both goals-against average (0.96) and save percentages (.959). She is 11-2-2 on the season. The weekend series was her first full series on the ice since she suffered a knee injury against Minnesota-Duluth in November. She played a single game against Bemidji two weeks ago, but admitted that she was more comfortable on the ice this time out.

Sunday's win was Rigsby's 94th, the most in program in history.
