Campbell earns spot on Patty Kazmaier Top-10 List

Posted: Updated:

MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin women’s hockey goaltender Kristen Campbell picked up another major accolade on Thursday as the sophomore has been named a Top-10 Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award Finalist, USA Hockey announced on Thursday.

It marks the third-straight year a UW goaltender has been on the list as Ann-Renee Desbiens was a top-three finalist in 2015-16 before winning the award during the 2016-17 season.

Campbell leads all NCAA Division I netminders in shutouts (11), wins (29), save percentage (.942) and goals-against average (1.15) during her first year with the Badgers after transferring in from North Dakota.

The Brandon, Manitoba, native has a 29-3-2 record in net for the No. 1 Badgers and her winning percentage of .882 leads the country this year.

She was named WCHA Goaltender of the Month three times this year, WCHA Defensive Player of the Week three times and twice was an NCAA Star of the Week.

Campbell and the top-ranked Badgers have a bye this weekend before the team heads to Minneapolis next weekend for the 2018 WCHA Final Faceoff. UW will open the tournament with a semifinal game on Saturday, March 3 at 2 p.m. at Ridder Arena.
