Bemidji State adds former player Fryklund as women’s assistant

Bemidji State has named all-time leading scorer Amber Fryklund as an assistant coach of the women’s hockey program.

Fryklund tallied 122 points from 2000-2003 and returns to her alma mater after a stint coaching high school hockey in Minnesota.

“I’m very excited to be able to return to Bemidji State as an assistant coach,” Fryklund said in a statement. “BSU is where I played my college hockey and it is very exciting to be provided the opportunity to come back to a program that is only getting better. Coach Sertich and his staff have done a tremendous job over the last few years. I have had the chance to connect with Steve on several occasions through alumni events. He is a great coach and I am excited to work with him and the rest of his staff.”

Following her collegiate career, Fryklund went on to play for the Minnesota Blue Jays Senior A Team and Duluth North Stars Senior A team before playing professionally in 2006-2007 for the Minnesota Whitecaps of the Western Women’s Hockey League.
