Gophers in driver's seat for Big Ten title, NCAA appearance

MINNEAPOLIS -- One month ago, this scenario didn't seem possible. The Gophers men's hockey team headed into a late-January series with Wisconsin on a not-so-positive note. Minnesota had just lost to Minnesota State and Minnesota Duluth the previous weekend and had plenty of work to do to get back into the NCAA tournament picture. Now with three weeks to go in the regular season,...

Gophers brace for challenge from upstart Penn State hockey program

MINNEAPOLIS -- When men's hockey first became a Division I sport in 1947, the University of Minnesota was one of the flagship schools. The Gophers have since become one of the most decorated programs in college hockey.

Weekend warriors: Gophers sweep Michigan, tie for first in Big Ten

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Gophers men's hockey team is heating up at the right time. Just check the Big Ten standings for proof.

Key to Gophers' stretch run could be Warning

MINNEAPOLIS -- When Sam Warning scores goals, they seem to come in bunches for the Gophers senior forward. That was certainly the case last season when he finished tied for second on Minnesota's roster with 14 goals. He scored five goals in the Gophers' first four games, but then didn't find the net again for 15 games. When he did, though, he went on to score five goals in a three...

Struggling Gophers plan to get defensive

MINNEAPOLIS -- Last year's Gophers men's hockey team nearly personified the sports cliche that preaches how defense wins championships. Minnesota ranked third in the nation during the 2013-14 season in scoring defense, allowing just 2.10 goals per game. That stingy defense was a big reason the Gophers advanced to the national title game before falling to Union in the championship...

The Gophers senior captain doesn't say a whole lot on the rink, and he's quiet away of it, too. Yet even though the 5-foot-8 forward is one of the smallest and most soft-spoken players on Minnesota's roster, there's no question he's the team leader...
