Steffen was a first-team All-Western Collegiate Hockey Association defenseman last season, when she posted a career-high 25 points (seven goals, 18 assists).

The Badgers, who were picked to win the WCHA regular-season championship by league coaches and who were ranked No. 1 in the preseason USCHO.com poll, open the season at Lindenwood on Sept. 27-28.
