MINNEAPOLIS – The University of Minnesota men’s hockey program announced today that freshman forward Connor Reilly will miss the 2012-13 season with a knee injury. Reilly suffered the injury after he slipped and fell awkwardly over the weekend.

Reilly is scheduled to undergo surgery in the near future, although a date has yet to be determined.

“I’m disappointed for Connor. He’s been working very hard to get back on the ice this year from his previous surgery, and this is an unfortunate setback for him. I’m confident that he’ll continue to work hard through this process and support the team in any way he can this season,” said Gopher head coach Don Lucia. “We have a great medical staff here at the University of Minnesota, and I know they will make sure Connor’s surgery and ensuing rehabilitation go well.”

Reilly, a native of Chanhassen, Minn., helped the BCHL's Penticton Vees set a North American junior hockey record with a 42-game win streak en route to RBC Cup and Doyle Cup championships in 2011-12. Reilly finished seventh in the BCHL in scoring last season with 86 regular-season points.
