Duluth, MN (NNCNOW.com) --- Aleksandra Vafina scored a goal and had two assists in her former home rink on Monday night as she and Team Russia beat the University of Minnesota-Duluth 5-2 in an exhibition game at AMSOIL Arena.

Vafina played four seasons for the Bulldogs while in college and said following the game that she was thrilled to get the chance to return to Duluth and play against her old teammates.
