Go Gophers!
It's safe to say that no one player is more associated with the 2001-02 National Champion Golden Gopher hockey team than Grand Forks, N.D. native Grant Potulny. The three-year captain scored the championship-winning goal in overtime against Maine to give Minnesota its first title since 1979. Potulny played in 146 games for the Gophers, totaling 68 goals and 48 assists for 116 points, but none were more memorable than his OT-winner at the Xcel Energy Center.

This weekend, Gopher hockey will celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of the greatest seasons in Minnesota athletics history. Several members of that unforgettable team (including Potulny) will be in attendance at this weekend's Gophers vs. Bemidji State series, with the formal recognition ceremony during Saturday's game.

GopherSports sat down with the Gophers' third-year assistant coach as he reflected on that unforgettable goal, magical season and much more in this video interview!
