Go Gophers!
This weekend, Gopher hockey will celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of the greatest seasons in Minnesota athletics history -- the 2001-02 men's hockey national championship team. Several members of that unforgettable team will be in attendance at this weekend's Gophers vs. Bemidji State series, with the formal recognition ceremony during Saturday's game.

GopherSports.com caught up with the three members of the current Gopher coaching staff (Don Lucia, Mike Guentzel and Grant Potulny) who were also integral parts of that '02 championship (the first of the Gophers' back-to-back titles). 2001-02 marked Lucia's third year behind the bench for the Gophers, as he took the reigns of Minnesota's signature sport before the 1999-2000.

Later this week we'll post interviews with both Guentzel and Potulny -- be sure to check back on GopherSports.com for more!
