BEMIDJI -- The Bemidji State women’s hockey team now has a post-holiday schedule.

The Western Collegiate Hockey Association women’s league announced Wednesday that the 2021 portion of its season will begin the week of Jan. 1-5.

The Beavers will open the New Year by traveling to Ohio State for a Jan. 1-2 series. The team will play 16 conference games over two months, concluding with a Feb. 26-27 home series against St. Cloud State. The other six WCHA teams will play 14 league games apiece.

Details regarding the WCHA Final Faceoff will be released at a later date, said a league news release.

BSU (1-1-0) was originally scheduled to open the pandemic-shortened season Nov. 20-21, but that series was postponed due to positive COVID-19 tests within the SCSU program. Bemidji State’s second scheduled series, set for Dec. 4-5 against Minnesota State, was then postponed after COVID-19 cases within the BSU program prevented most of the team from practicing for two weeks due to quarantining.


Fresh off of a series split with SCSU to open the season, the Beavers are scheduled to conclude the first half Dec. 17-18 with a league series at Minnesota State.
