The above graphic announcing Gabbie Hughes’ award was prepared by the Minnesota-Duluth sports information department.

Gabbie Hughes, after completing a prodigious hockey career at Minnesota Duluth in March, received a national humanitarian award in early April — then helped Team USA capture the world championship.

Hughes, a center, was one of 25 members of the national team that defeated Canada 6-3 on Sunday in the finals of the IIHF women’s world tournament, ending a string of three world titles by the Canadians, in Brampton, Ontario. The Americans were 6-0-1 in the tournament. Hughes, in her first time on Team USA at this level, had one goal, during a win over Switzerland.
