Minnesota vs Minnesota State Mankato Preview

The Minnesota Golden Gophers arrive into their 22nd Frozen Four appearance and have quite the formidable opponent in in-state rival Minnesota State. Their first appearance since 2014 sees them as an underdog with a chance to end up in the final against the winner of Denver- Michigan on Saturday.

The Golden Gophers are led by captain Ben Meyers, the Hobey Baker finalist is the first Minnesota player to be nominated to this final list since Jordan Leopold was 20 years ago and he is well-positioned to be the winner of said distinction.

Boasting a nation high 14 NHL-drafted players, the Gophers are loaded. With a 26-12 record, the Gopher’s resume doesn’t stand out compared to their peers in the Frozen Four, but they have won 11 of their last 12 games, with the lone loss coming to Michigan in the BIG10 title game by one goal.

Meyers led the team in scoring with 17 goals and 41 points. First-year forward Matthew Knies is also an emerging star. In his first year of college hockey, he scored 32 points in 32 games. The Gophers are probably the biggest underdog here, but more than capable of winning it all.

That said Minnesota State come into this contest as the team that could win their first-ever national title. The Mavericks have the best record in the country at 37-5 this season. This team is making a return trip to the Frozen Four.

This time around, the Mavericks come in as a solid team in every line. Experienced goalie and Hobey Baker finalist Dryden McKay stonewalled the opposition this year as he was integral in his team being the second-ranked defense in the country, conceding only 54 goals in 42 games.

In addition to their staunch defense, they also had the most explosive offense in the nation scoring on 172 occasions. Offensively they are led by third-year forward Nathan Smith who chalked up 50 points this year.

Minnesota State proved many doubters wrong after beating Harvard in the Albany regional and then ground out a win against Notre Dame to get into this stage of the tournament, but now they will face the toughest tests of the year if they look to become champs.
