MINNEAPOLIS (GopherSports.com) – Gopher Hockey head coach Don Lucia has announced that Mitch Rogge has signed an Acceptance of Admission at the University of Minnesota and will join the Gopher men’s hockey program.
A native of Eden Prairie, Minn., Rogge (pronounced ROW-ghee) comes to the Gophers after spending the 2013-14 season at Sacred Heart. The forward skated in two games for the Pioneers and previously spent three seasons in the North American Hockey League with the Springfield Jr. Blues and the Amarillo Bulls.
Rogge was a four-year letter winner at Eden Prairie High School and was a two-time all-conference honoree. He skated with fellow Gopher Kyle Rau and Gopher alum Nick Leddy for the Eagles and helped the team win the 2009 Minnesota Class AA State Championship.
