09/10 Women's Previews: #29 Nikka Kaasa


Vitals:

Position: Goalie
Year in School: Redshirt Freshman
Catches Right
Height: 5-10
Hometown: St Cloud, MN
Major: undecided
Previous Team: Technical HS in St Cloud in 07/08

08/09 Stats: Redshirted
07/08 Stats: 2.12 GAA, .934 save %, 6 shutouts

09/10 Role: Fighting for some PT in goal

08/09 Recap: Suited up for every game (at least the home games I saw), but did not see any PT and was redshirted.

09/10 Thoughts: It will be interesting to see how the goaltending situation shakes out this season. Jessie Vetter played almost every game the last four years and now she has graduated. Nikki should be fighting for playing time w/ senior Alannah McCready and freshman Rebecca Ruegsegger; the job is wide open let the competition begin.

Prediction: 6 games, 2.40 GAA, .902 save %*
*All predictions for regular season only
