Another cheer for Gopher Hockey. One of our own made it big in the NHL – as the new HEAD COACH of the Minnesota Wild – talk about a hometown dream. Todd Richards was named the new head coach for the NHL Minnesota Wild. Richards grew up in Crystal, Minnesota and played college hockey for my beloved Minnesota Golden Gophers.
I am looking forward to see what Todd Richards can do for the Minnesota Wild team. It already feels good to know that we will have a Gopher behind the bench in the “State of Hockey.”
