Thoughts: During the one game I made last year Erika was fun to watch. She might be tiny, but she plays like a giant on the ice. Last season Erika led the team in assists and was 2nd team All-WCHA. She's had 30+ points in each of her seasons as a Badger, and 2 National Championships on her resume. Erika has a bunch of international experience as well, most recently captaining the USA U-22 team against Canada in a 3 game series. If memory serves me right she was a key part of USA's World Championship this summer as well. Erika should be ready for a great senior year and a run at her 3rd NC.
