Current Minnesota Duluth goaltender Maddie Rooney and ex-Bulldog Sidney Morin, who helped the U.S. women's hockey team win gold at last month's Winter Olympics, will be welcomed back to Duluth in a ceremony April 12 at Grandma's Sports Garden, according to a KBJR report.

The free celebration is expected to start with a 30-minute introduction, including a question-and-answer session, which will be followed by autographs. The U.S. team - especially the charismatic Rooney, who was stellar in goal while backstopping the Americans to their first gold medal since 1998 - have been on a whirlwind media tour since returning from Pyeongchang, South Korea.

Rooney will be a junior for UMD next season. Morin used up her eligibility a year ago before being a late addition to the U.S. team.
