Lindsey Hjelm, daughter of former Brainerd High School athlete Rick Hjelm, was one of three Gustavus Adolphus women’s hockey players named to the 2012 CCM Division III Women’s Hockey All-America Team.

Hjelm, a junior defender and Mounds View High School graduate, took home all-conference honors for the third time in her career. She finished league play as the second-ranked scoring defender in the MIAC with nine goals and 14 assists for 23 points. Her 0.86 points per-game average ranked ninth in NCAA Division III among defenders.

Running the point on the power play, Hjelm tallied 12 power-play points (5G, 7A), ranking her third on the team. She has skated in all 89 in her collegiate career, tallying 79 career points (33G, 46A).
