MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota freshman forward Connor Reilly will miss the 2012-13 hockey season after hurting his knee.

The Gophers say Reilly slipped and fell awkwardly over the weekend. He is scheduled to have surgery soon but a date has not been set yet.

Coach Don Lucia says Reilly had been working to get back on the ice this year from previous surgery, “and this is an unfortunate setback for him.”

Reilly helped the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League set a North American junior hockey record with a 42-game win streak en route to RBC Cup and Doyle Cup championships in 2011-12.

The Chanhassen, Minn., native finished seventh in the BCHL in scoring last season with 86 regular-season points.
