In last night’s 4-1 win over the Ohio State Buckeyes, Kings defensive prospect Brock Faber opened scoring with his first NCAA goal. The University of Minnesota Golden Gophers are on a roll, now 3-0 on the season so far.

The Gophers showed no signs of wear in their third game in five days, outshooting Ohio 27-17 and a perfect 3-for-3 on the penalty kill. Bryce Brodzinski added a power play goal, and Ben Meyers notched one shorthanded. Special teams are huge for Minnesota this season, going 3-for-8 on the power play and 9-for-9 on the penalty kill.
