Hockey pioneer Winny Brodt Brown, an original member of the Minnesota Whitecaps, is returning for her second NWHL season.

Brown, the first-ever winner of the Minnesota Ms. Hockey Award, a star at the University of Minnesota, and a member of the U.S. National Team program for a decade, played 16 games in the Whitecaps’ Isobel Cup championship season in 2018-19.

“My goal for the season is to come back stronger than ever and help the Whitecaps have another successful season,” said Brodt Brown.

Brown played at the University of Minnesota from 1998 – 2003. In 96 career games, she totaled 134 career points with 41 goals and 93 assists. She was named the 2000 WCHA Defensive Player of the Year and a Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award finalist, and she led the Gophers to the 2000 AWCHA national championship. Brodt Brown still ranks second in career points and third in both career goals and assists among all-time Gopher defenders.
