Go Gophers!

Gopher Hockey and the University of Minnesota athletic department would like to congratulate former Gopher Nick Leddy and the Stanley Cup Champion Chicago Blackhawks!

Leddy and the Blackhawks endured a thrilling six-game series against the Boston Bruins in this year's Stanley Cup Final including three overtime battles to win the series 4-2.

Game One (CHI 4-3, 3OT) | Game Two (BOS 2-1, OT) | Game Three (BOS 2-0)

Game Four (CHI 6-5, OT) | Game Five (CHI 3-1) | Game Six (CHI 3-2)

In 2012-13, Leddy appeared in all 48 regular-season games and all 23 playoff games for the Blackhawk. The defenseman tallied a career-high six goals, totaled 20 points for season and was a plus-19 - the Eden Prairie native's highest rating in a three-year professional career.

Leddy is the ninth Gophers alum to win the Stanley Cup and the first to do so since Alex Goligoski in 2009 with the Pittsburgh Penguins.
