The Minnesota Golden Gophers women's hockey team will represent the University of Minnesota Duluth in the 2011–12 NCAA Division I women's ice hockey season. The Bulldogs will attempt to win their sixth NCAA women's Frozen Four championship. The school will be hosting two postseason events: the 2012 NCAA Frozen Four Championship, and the 2011 WCHA's Final Face-Off, both at AMSOIL Arena. Of note, head coach Miller was chair of the Ethics Committee for US women's college hockey. In addition, she was a member of the the NCAA Division 1 Championships Committee, one of only two coaches in the entire country to serve on both committees.[1]
