Gophers team full of in-state kids eager for 'fun' Hockey Day Minnesota

MINNEAPOLIS -- When the Golden Gophers hockey team played on Hockey Day Minnesota last year, they needed a boost from Missouri native Sam Warning to topple Ohio State. With all but three players on this year's roster hailing from the State of Hockey, there's a good chance a Minnesotan could come up big for the Gophers on Saturday, when the state's sport is showcased at all levels...

Quick prospect note: Skjei week-to-week

Just a quick note: 2012 1st round pick Brady Skjei, currently on the top defense pairing at Minnesota, is week-to-week following a lower body injury. Skjei had put up 1-2-3 in 6 games with the top-ranked Golden Gophers prior to the injury. Skeji is likely to turn pro following this season with Minnesota.

Conor Allen showing John Moore’s spot is not guaranteed

When the Rangers blue line finally gets healthy, the assumption has always been that John Moore will be the LD on the third pairing. It’s tough to argue with that, as the one prospect who appears NHL ready is currently playing at the University of Minnesota (Brady Skjei).

Gophers grind out overtime win vs. Huskies

MINNEAPOLIS -- It had to be Justin Kloos. As Minnesota and St. Cloud State skated to a tie after three periods, someone needed to step up for the Gophers to salvage a split. Kloos had already scored twice in regulation. Why not once more in overtime? Sure enough, the Gophers sophomore found the back of the net for a third time Saturday at Mariucci Arena as he completed the hat trick...

Gophers rekindle old rivalry with series against St. Cloud State

MINNEAPOLIS -- Two years ago, the 70-mile drive from Mariucci Arena to the National Hockey Center in St. Cloud was a routine trip for the Gophers.

Now that Minnesota has moved to the Big Ten Conference, trips like the one this weekend are a bit scarcer. The Gophers are no longer in the...

Top-ranked Gophers say they're 'too easy to play against'

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Gophers men's hockey team is off to a 4-0 start to the year and is ranked No. 1 in both major college hockey polls.

PROSPECT UPDATE: Steve Fogarty Is The Best NYR Prospect You Know Nothing About

In 2011 the Rangers used a third-round pick acquired from the St. Louis Blues and selected Steve Fogarty, a higher schooler from Minnesota. Fogarty was an incredibly raw prospect that Gordie Clark acknowledged from the beginning was a project and faced a long development path. Fogarty has spent the last two seasons at Notre Dame going through “hockey puberty,” if you will. It’s...

Gophers hockey shows grit, rallies past Bemidji State

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Gophers men's hockey team knew it would trail at some point this season. Through Minnesota's first three games, though, that scenario hadn't yet happened. So when the Gophers fell behind early against Bemidji State on Saturday, Minnesota finally had to rally from behind. The Gophers did so not once but twice as they won 5-3 against the Beavers to sweep the two...

Boyd leads top-ranked Gophers past Bemidji State

MINNEAPOLIS -- Power play. Shorthanded. It didn't matter for Travis Boyd.

It was the first multi-goal game for Boyd and it came in his 119th career game. Better late than never. "There's a first time for everything, so...
