MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – What begins Friday night is one of the most important seasons in Gopher hockey.
The question remains: Will the Gophers failing to make the NCAA tournament become a trend?
The current theories in the hockey community focus on Don Lucia and the NHL draft taking too many players too soon.
But the Gophers will find out a lot over the weekend, when they play Duluth, the defending national champions. The Gophers know this is judgment season and that the judging starts with how they look Friday.
