Every weekday from May 23-June 7, we will be looking back at the "Dandy Dozen" moments from the historic 2015-16 WCHA season. Next up on our countdown is…

Moment 6: Brandt Concludes Historic Career

Her first point was a goal on Sept. 28, 2012 at Ridder Arena against Colgate – part of a hat trick in her collegiate debut. Her last point was an assist on March 20, 2016 at the Whittemore Center against Boston College in the NCAA Championship Game. Those two games – the Gophers' first with her in uniform and her last – featured point(s) by Hannah Brandt and were Minnesota wins, both hallmarks of a remarkable college career.

One of the all-time great players in the history of women's college hockey, Brandt wrapped up her career with prominent places throughout the WCHA and NCAA record books. She finished with 285 points, matching Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson for most in WCHA history (since 1999-2000), while her 170 assists are the most in league annals and her 115 goals are tied for fourth. In NCAA history (since 2000-01), Brandt finished tied for second for points, second for assists and tied for seventh for goals. She is the Gophers' all-time leading scorer and holds the program record for assists, while ranking second for goals.

A native of Vadnais Heights, Minn., Brandt tallied at least one point in 127 of her 158 career games with Minnesota, while factoring in 58 game-winning goals (scoring 21 and assisting on 37).

Brandt was a cornerstone for the winningest class in Gophers history. Her Minnesota teams compiled a 148-9-6 (.926) overall record and a 100-6-6 (.920) mark in WCHA play, won three league regular season titles and two postseason crowns, and three national championships (while playing in the Frozen Four title game each year). She also helped the Gophers to 54 consecutive victories between Sept. 28, 2012 and Nov. 16, 2013 – part of Minnesota's NCAA-record 62 straight wins.

On the ice, Brandt was a four-time Patty Kazmaier Memorial Award top-10 finalist (and twice a top-3 finalist) and a three-time First Team All-American. She was named to the All-WCHA First Team all four years on campus, was the league's Rookie of the Year in 2013 and was twice tabbed Player of the Year (2014 and 2015). Also a stellar student, Brandt was a WCHA Scholar-Athlete Award recipient and All-Academic Team member all three years she was eligible.
