Former UND All-American goaltender and two-time Patty Kazmaier Award finalist Shelby Amsley-Benzie has been hospitalized after being hit by a school bus in south Fargo on Friday morning.
Amsley-Benzie, now a goalie coach with Concordia Moorhead, was snow blowing in white-out conditions when the bus struck her, according to a news release by Valley Bus.
The accident happened at about 8 a.m. Friday.
There were no updates available on Amsley-Benzie's condition Monday afternoon.
Concordia's sports information office posted on Twitter: "Final tweet of the weekend goes out to Cobber women's hockey assistant coach Shelby Amsley-Benzie who was in a serious accident on Friday. Thoughts & prayers are w/ her & her family. Here's to a full recovery & seeing your smiling face on the bench again!"
Concordia athletic director Rachel Bergeson posted: "Cobber Athletics is praying for our hockey goalie coach Shelby! We are sending hugs your way, Shelby!"
Warroad's girls hockey Twitter account posted: "Thoughts & prayers toward former Lady Warrior and two time State Champion Shelby Amsley-Benzie as she was in a terrible accident this morning. We are all here for you Shelby, stay strong."
Amsley-Benzie starred at Warroad High, leading the Warriors to their first and only two state championships as a junior and senior. The Warriors beat Breck and South St. Paul in the 2010 and 2011 title games.
Then, she proceeded to set nearly every goaltending record at UND.
After redshirting her rookie season at UND, Amsley-Benzie quickly turned into one of the country's best. She led UND to the NCAA tournament during her first season, nearly upsetting Minnesota to go to the NCAA Frozen Four in 2013. The Gophers finished 41-0 that season. Their closest call was a triple overtime game against Amsley-Benzie and UND in the regional final.
Amsley-Benzie was named a finalist for the Patty Kazmaier Award, which goes to the top player in college hockey, as both a junior and senior.
She finished her collegiate career with a 67-33-10 record, a 1.69 goals-against average, a .929 save percentage and 22 shutouts.
