What is going on with the Gophers hockey team? Their play is sloppy and the defense is weak. The Gopher seniors need to step up and take charge of this team before it’s too late to salvage the season.

Be sure to come back to Mariucci Arena on Sunday for a losers game and an evening winners game. This Gopher hockey fan hopes to see her favorite maroon and gold team in the winners game Sunday night. A Golden Gopher tournament win would be a perfect way to ring in the New Year. Let’s go Gophers! Buy Gopher hockey tickets from http://www.gophershockeytickets.com/ Gopher Tournament tickets start out at $49 each!

I was just reading an article in the Pioneer Press that 19 year old Gopher hockey player Kyle Okposo loves being a college sophomore and playing Guitar Hero with his buddies and getting a good education. He doesn’t love the pressure that has been put on him this Gopher hockey season, but he has been producing more goals lately and has relaxed on the ice.
However, it was just announced that Kyle Okposo will forgo the remainder of the 2007-08 season and his career with the Golden Gophers to sign a contract with the New York Islanders of the National Hockey League. He is the eighth Minnesota player to leave college early for the professional ranks since the end of the 2005-06 season and it shows in the Golden Gophers hockey record this season. Don Lucia will need to amp up the recruiting to keep his Golden Gophers in top shape!

This Golden Gopher Hockey fan thought the Gophs were going to lose Saturday night as the Sioux put up a flurry of shots in the last minute. North Dakota pulled the goalie and put on quite a rally in front of their hometown fans at Ralph Engelstad arena. In fact they rallied all third period! Minnesota led 4-1 with four minutes to go, but the Sioux refused to go down without a fight. Thankfully, the Minnesota Golden Gophers hung on for the much needed road victory.
Mike Hoeffel, a freshman Gopher forward, scored two goals for the maroon and gold and Blake Wheeler and Ben Gordon each put one between the pipes for the Gopher victory.

Dan Coleman had an outstanding overall game, scoring 22 points on 10-of-14 shooting to go with 11 rebounds to rack up his sixth career double-double. Coleman also scored his 1,000th career point in the second half, becoming the 34th player in the University of Minnesota school history to achieve the milestone. Congrats Dan!
