McManus Named B1G Third Star
Oct. 17, 2017

MINNEAPOLIS - Gopher Hockey freshman Brannon McManus has been tabbed the Big Ten Third Star of the Week after recording his first career hat trick in Minnesota's 6-3 win over Penn State on Sunday at 3M Arena at Mariucci.

A native of Newport Beach, Calif., McManus scored three goals - his first three collegiate tallies - on three shots in the third period including the eventual game-winning goal. His three goals led all Big Ten skaters as well as all NCAA freshmen over the weekend. The forward was plus-three on the night and also added a block in the win.


The Gophers (2-2-0 overall, 1-1-0-0 Big Ten) return to nonconference action next weekend with a two-game series against North Dakota. Minnesota will be making its first trip to Grand Forks, N.D. since the 2011-12 season.

Single-game tickets, season tickets and flexible Pick-Your-Packs are currently available at GopherSports.com, by calling 1-800-U-Gopher or by stopping by the ticket office at 3M Arena at Mariucci.
