+ Airs on FOX Sports North PLUS

All Times Central | Schedule Subject to Change

This was from the FSN website at the bottom of the Gopher Hockey TV schedule, so the + does mean it's on the "plus" channel.

Is the + channel the one where game isn't listed in the Guide (I have Comcast for instance) or is that the alternate?

Correct, this channel doesn't become "live" until gametime. It is channel 13, 23 or 694 for HD if you have Comcast.

Ok, we beat the plus channel to death. I haven't looked at the FSN site, do they list when they have directors cut?

(And no talk of UND players? I'm surprised.)

Bummer. Those games are a bit more cumbersome to record, but it can be done.

There is a fear that they bring back LaTVVoice back. *shudder*

For Gopher hockey fans going to the Gopher/Syracuse football game (http://www.gophersports.com/blog/2012/09/mens-hockey-autograph-session-set-for-saturday-at-block-g.html) on Saturday, you have a "rare" opportunity for a photo op with Gopher hockey players with the Mac too. The Gopher hockey team will be honored at the game.

That's all going on in the Whioux's thread. Why contaminate our thread if we can keep it contained over there. :)

Gophers forward Connor Reilly, one of the hockey program’s top incoming freshmen, will miss the entire 2012-13 season because of a knee injury.

Reilly hurt his right knee in an off-ice incident at a recent team party, according to two sources close to the situation.

He had hoped to be part of a rare three-brother combination on a Gophers team with high expectations. The Gophers advanced to the Frozen Four last spring and should be the WCHA favorite when the preseason polls are released.

Ryan, Connor's twin and another forward, and younger brother Mike, a defenseman, are among the Gophers’ eight other first-year players.

Last season the Reillys were all standouts for the Penticton Vees of the British Columbia Hockey League. Connor had 35 goals and 86 points for the Vees before his season ended abruptly after 54 games. He had surgery on his left knee on March 6 for a knee condition which causes fragments of bone to break off from the joint surface.

The 6-foot, 170-pound Connor, who had two screws inserted to repair that knee, was expected to be ready for the Gophers’ season-opening series against Michigan State at Mariucci Arena on Oct. 12-13.

The Vees had a 42-game winning streak and ended the regular season with a 54-6-0 record, and then won the Junior A national championship in Canada.

Connor, who turns 21 on Oct. 1, graduated from Holy Angels in 2010. He played for the Sioux Falls Stampede of the USHL for one season before becoming a Vee.

He is part of a well-known hockey family in Chanhassen. His father Mike played college hockey for Colorado College and the Gophers and was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in 1977. His sister Shannon played for Ohio State from 2006-10.

Without Connor, the Gophers still have 14 forwards or two more than normally play every game.

I see the depth is already paying off. That's a shame though. Always hate to see this stuff happen.

Team parties don't appear to be working out well lately for WCHA teams.

Bummer

I was looking forward to seeing him play, heard he has some wheels and can score. At least we do have some depth this year.

Edit: A positive spin on this, wow that class next year (I know not technically in that class) just got even better.

Agreed. I know some people thought that Connor was going to have a great season this year, but fortunately for Minnesota they have plenty of depth in that area and likely won't feel too much an effect. Either way though, tough loss. Hope he heals quick and has a great year next year.

I wonder how many early games are on the regular channel if the NHL lockout lasts awhile? I assume some are for Wild games.

Wasn't asking for it, just surprised it wasn't talked about here.

And bummer about Reilly. The article said 6 foot, 170 lbs, is that right? For some reason I thought he was shorter.
