Minnesota hosts the US under-18 team (and future Gopher Hudson Fasching) Friday night at Mariucci at 7PM, followed by Canisius for one game Sunday at 1PM. The Canisius game will be on FSN and the US under18 game will not.

What is a Canisius?
Do they have any fans?
Will Fasching defect and stay with the Gophers for the rest of the year?

Looking forward to watching Hudson Fasching play against his future team, hopefully we take it easy on him. :)

If you signed up for Gopher All Access, you get to watch the US under 18 brats with no commentary. Canisius College is a private Roman Catholic college in Buffalo, New York. The college was founded in 1870 by members of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) from Germany and is named after St. Peter Canisius.

They have one fan...God...so watch your mouth San.;)

Good call Harley, I do have that for the rest of the month.

Canisius - I bet their hail mary is different than mine which starts out "hail mary full of grace come sit upon my face".

Just bring your binoculars to the computer and you're golden dude...remember the small screen crap? You need a steady kryptonite diet to read the numbers.

“@Russostrib: Vinni Lettieri, who has played 6 gms for USHL Lincoln, is an injury replacement for US Under-18 tm & will play #gophers & St. Thomas Fri/Sat”

Looks like we get to see both Fasching and Lettieri play against the Gophers, looking forward to it.

They've both got to be pretty excited, as well as a little nervous. No doubt each will be going 120% to make a good impression on their future teammates and coaches.

I am too! The US Under-18 showed they play against D1 teams a couple weeks ago in 6-4 loss to UND. They had a bad first period and gave up three goals; and then played two very solid periods of hockey. Hudson Fasching had a goal and two assists in that game. He's quite a hockey player:


"He's as intelligent a player as you'll ever see," said Apple Valley hockey coach Jerry Hayes of Fasching, who led the team with 36 points in the regular season last year. "It's a rink rat's mind in a skilled player. Attach that to the physical attributes and it's really something amazing."

If you haven't read Hudson's story it's well worth the read. Not only is Hudson another golden recruit for the Golden Gophers, but he's a kid with a heart of gold from an amazing family. Article on Hudson Fasching (http://www.mnhockeyhub.com/news_article/show/72339?referrer_id=32770).

MN Hockey Magazine (@mnhockeymag) #Gophers coach Don Lucia says Brady Skjei, Kyle Rau, and Mark Alt will be held out of Friday's exhibition with minor nagging injuries.

MN Hockey Magazine (@mnhockeymag) Lucia said Skjei also won't play against Canisius on Sunday but should be ready to practice next week. #Gophers

It's nice to have depth this year, this will give a few others a chance to play this weekend.

Good idea scheduling a bye weekend after the gophers overachieved and won a game against Tech.

bjugstad should do whatever he wants out there on the ice with 17 year olds.

wonder who is going to play first line left wing with rau out. id guess they dont care to split the lines up given that it's an exhibition game.. maybe just slide in michaelson or horn or something..

Won't much matter, the result will be the same. But it will be a good opportunity for the coaches to take a real good look at a half-dozen players who will want to prove that they belong on one of the top 3 units.

Good point and apparently the "others" will be carefully scrutinized by Lucia and co. to determine future ice time:


How do you get ‘up’ for a weekend like this after playing their first road series and first conference series? “There’s still a lot to play for. We’re going to play some guys that haven’t played on Friday night for awhile. They’re going to get their opportunity, and it’s a big opportunity for them because if they don’t show well, they might not get in.
