Gophers Win Second Straight IceBreaker
Wilcox, Reilly's Lead the Way
The Gophers completed a weekend 'sweep' on Sunday morning/afternoon with a 3 - 0 win against RPI, to win their second straight (3rd overall) IceBreaker tournament. Adam Wilcox was solid in net with 21 saves, and offensively the Gophers were led by the Reilly's as Connor Reilly tallied a power play goal & and assist and his brother Mike added two assists of his own.
Hudson Fasching was named the tournament MVP with two goals and one assist on the weekend. Kyle Rau, Mike Reilly, Brady Skjei and Adam Wilcox were also named to the all tournament team, which was almost exclusively Gophers.
For some reason there is now a bye week before the next series at home vs. Bemidji State. Starting off the all-important non-conference schedule - which almost exclusively runs before conference play starts - is huge, especially in a neutral site with basically zero fans watching. Both games will actually be televised as well, with Friday's game on the 24th set for the Big Ten network, while Saturday's game will be FSN's first telecast of the season (FSN Plus).
