Captaining her team to a weekend sweep, Alex Rigsby earned WCHA Defense Player of the Week honors Wednesday.

She tallied 25 saves and a shutout Saturday and added 28 saves. In addition, she had more than 100 consecutive minutes of shutout puck in the net before Minnesota State scored a third-period goal Sunday.

Rigsby needs just seven career wins to pass Jessie Vetter for most wins by a Badger women's goalie all-time. Saturday's shutout was the 24th in her career.

From  "In all, she saved 53 of 54 shots for a series save percentage of .981, which is the nation’s best mark among goalies with at least two starts this year."
