Non-Minnesotans on The Golden Gopher Men's Hockey Team

Minnesota kids make up the majority of the Gophers Men’s Hockey Team. In fact, local talent occupies 22 out of the 25 roster slots. That said, the three other players that make up the rest of the roster deserve equal fan support as well. So we thought it would be appropriate to highlight them and their respective collegiate careers up to this point in time.

Sam Warning

A senior Forward from Chesterfield Missouri, last year with the Gophers he achieved a new career high in points, assists and goals. With 34 points total, 14 goals and 20 assists. Expect to see Warning improve and set new career highs in his final season with the Gophers.

Robin Höglund

Höglund, a freshman hailing all the way from MöIndal, Sweden, played for a club team, the Janesville Jets, last year and scored 24 goals in 57 appearances. The forward brings some international flavor to the mostly Minnesota native team.

Leon Bristedt

Another freshman hailing from Sweden, although this time Stockholm instead of MöIndal, Bristedt previously played for the club team Linköping.  According to Bristedt was ranked 24th amongst European prospects in Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2014 NHL Draft.
