Kalli Funk, Minnesota Whitecaps: The 25-year-old wing from Roseville returns for her third season with the Whitecaps as the club begins play in the NWHL. Previously, Funk played one year at Niagara, three years at St. Cloud State, and one season professionally with Goteborg HC of the SDHL before joining the Whitecaps.
“With last year being our first year in the league, it was awesome getting to compete for and win the Isobel Cup,” said Funk. “Our goal remains the same for this season, so I’m really excited to get the season started and defend our title.”
Funk had one goal and one primary assist in six games with the Whitecaps last season.
“With her strength and pure skating ability, Kalli will play a key role on our forward lines this season,” said Brodt.
