PREROV, Czech Republic -- North Dakota's women's hockey players continue to shine at the international level. Two months ago, senior forward Michelle Karvinen was named the top forward of the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. On Saturday, UND's Andrea Dalen was named the top forward of the 2014 IIHF Division I Group A Women's World Championship, helping Team Norway to a second-place finish and leading all skaters at the tournament with seven goals.

With three wins and two losses, Norway finished with nine points to edge Denmark in the team standings for second place. Denmark took third with two wins, one overtime win and two losses for eight points.

Fellow UND forward Josefine Jakobsen was named Denmark's top player after finishing tied with Dalen for third-place in overall point scoring. Jakobsen recorded seven points in the tournament, scoring two goals and tallying two assists.

On the final day of competition, Norway defeated France, 4-1, and Dalen recorded her third two-goal game of the tournament. Her first goal against France came on a five-on-three power play in the second period, while her second goal of the game was scored shorthanded on an empty net with four seconds remaining in the game.

Denmark took on tournament champion Czech Republic on Saturday. Jakobsen recorded an assist on the lone Danish goal which opened the scoring in the second period. Denmark held a 1-0 lead to start the third period, but the Czechs scored five unanswered goals in the third to win, 5-1.

Winning the tournament, the Czech Republic will play Japan in a three-game qualifying series with the winner advancing to the 2015 Women's World Championship. Slovakia finished last and is relegated to the 2015 Div. I Group B tournament. Latvia won the 2014 Div. I Group B tournament and will play in the 2015 DIv. I Group A tournament.
