Rikki Nespor

In the mid-2000s, the Yellowjacket women's hockey team enjoyed unprecedented success, regularly ranking as one of the top teams in the nation. The play of goaltenders Melissa Kunzelman, a 2017 hall of fame inductee, and Rikki Nespor was a big reason why. Nespor joins her goaltending partner after a career that saw her named All-NCHA twice and All-American First Team in 2006. Nespor helped the Yellowjacket women's hockey team to its only NCAA Frozen Four in 2008.
