Go Gophers!
This weekend, Gopher hockey will celebrate the 10th anniversary of one of the greatest seasons in Minnesota athletics history. Several members of that unforgettable 2002 NCAA championship team will be in attendance at this weekend's Gophers vs. Bemidji State series, with the formal recognition ceremony during Saturday's game.

We talked with now Associate Head Coach Mike Guentzel about the 2002 championship team. Guentzel was an assistant coach that year and helped the Gophers end a 23-year championship drought.

Guentzel, who played defense for Minnesota from 1981-85 and served as an assistant coach for the Gophers from 1994-08, rejoined the Gopher staff this year.

Guentzel, who captained the 1984-85 Gophers, tallied 87 career points (12 goals, 75 assists) in 143 games at Minnesota.
