Getting Close to Hockey

John Mayasich

We are 8 days away from the official start of the college hockey season. This weekend’s slate of exhibition games don’t count in any standings.

The photo, courtesy of Golden Gopher Hockey, is of John Mayasich, three time All-American and the all time leading scorer for the Golden Gophers. In 111 games played, Mayasich scored 144 goals and added 154 assists. #8 is the only jersey ever retired by the program.

Mayasich was also a member of the 1956 Silver Medal and 1960 Gold Medal winning Olympic teams.

Drop the puck.
