Penn State women's hockey goes over its game plan during an early-season series at Pegula Ice Arena in late November 2020.

Freshman goaltender Josie Bothun has been named the 2020-21 USCHO Rookie of the Year.

Bothun earned all 16 wins in net for the Nittany Lions, which was the most in a season by a netminder in program history.

In a season where the blue and white earned a CHA regular season title, Bothun provided the last line of defense all season long.

She ranked in the top five nationally in save percentage, winning percentage and shutouts.
