This is what happens when your hockey team goes an entire year undefeated.
Gophers hockey standouts Megan Bozek, Amanda Kessel and Noora Raty have been named the top three finalists for the 2013 Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award.
The award -- much like the Hobey Baker Award in men's hockey -- is annually presented to the top player in NCAA Division I women's ice hockey.
According to the Star Tribune, Kessel leads the nation with 94 points (43 goals, 51 assists). Bozek ranks second among the nation’s top-scoring defenders with 52 points (18 goals, 34 assists), and Raty leads the nation with a .953 save percentage.
This is the first time in the award’s 16 years that all three finalists are from the same team.
