Gophers Hockey Team Loses Top Scorer For SeasonSenior Jay Barriball will have season-ending knee surgery on Friday.
Knee injury ends Barriball's season
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota men's hockey team will be without its most accomplished scorer for the rest of the season.
The school says senior Jay Barriball will have season-ending knee surgery on Friday. Barriball was injured during practice on Tuesday.
Barriball has two goals and two assists this season and scored his 100th career point in a win over Alaska-Anchorage last week. He has 43 more career points than any other Gopher on the current roster.
The former Holy Angels star is eligible for a medical redshirt. That leaves open the possibility that he could return next season.
The Gophers host rival Wisconsin this weekend.
