The Minnesota Golden Gophers Men's Hockey team won their first Exhibition Game against the British Colombia Thunderbirds this past Sunday 6-1. Sunday's game was the first time the 2009-2010 Gopher Hockey Roster had skated on the Mariucci Arena Ice in front of crowd... they did the Gopher Fans proud!
Six different Gophers players put the puck in the net, proving to U of M alumni and fans that the Gophers roster this season will not be dependent on just a few players.. making them a tough team to go up against. Overall the Gophers outshout the Thunderbirds 44-11. Despite the fact that British Colombia skated on 3 power-plays the Golden Gophers Hockey team out skated and simply out performed the Thunderbirds through all 3 periods.
