EDINA, Minn. – Aug. 30, 2017 – The women's Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) will bring its fans even closer to the nation's premier conference this season, partnering with the award-winning Husky Productions out of St. Cloud State University (SCSU) on a first-of-its-kind, weekly highlights show. Each Monday throughout the season, producer and host Kirsten Krull will bring you all the top goals, saves and plays from the previous weekend in the WCHA.
Beginning Oct. 2, the WCHA Highlights Show will be available each Monday afternoon on the league's Twitter, Instagram and Facebook pages, along with WCHA.com.
"We are thrilled to provide our fans with a one-stop shop for WCHA weekly highlights," said WCHA Vice President and Women's League Commissioner Katie Million. "Every night, every rink in our league is a platform for amazing women's college hockey; putting all the action together in a tidy package each Monday showcases our terrific student-athletes and teams. As part of the WCHA's longstanding mission to help assist developing programs in every sense, we are proud to partner with the excellent staff and students at St. Cloud State University and Husky Productions for this project."
Located on campus in St. Cloud, Minn., Husky Productions – part of SCSU's nationally-renowned Department of Mass Communications – is a student-run sports production with a faculty advisor.
"This show provides a unique opportunity for our upper-level students to produce and host quick-hitting, league-wide highlights that are tailor-made for the WCHA's social media following," said Brian Stanley, Husky Productions' executive producer. "We are excited to join the WCHA in delivering more exposure for women's hockey."
