Noora Räty and Finland take home bronze
Golden Gopher women's hockey goalie, Noora Räty, helped Finland take home the bronze medal at the Olympics. Noora was Finland's starting goalie and aided Finland beat the Swedes 3-2 yesterday. This was the first medal for Finland since 1998. While with the Finland women's hockey team, Noora didn't miss a ninute on the ice and made sure to sport her gold pads, block and gloves in honor of the Golden Gophers. Räty returns to the Gophers just in time to face Minnesota State this weekend in the WCHA playoffs at Ridder Arena.
