The Gopher men's hockey team won the Big Ten regular season championship for the fourth-straight year on Friday night in their 4-0 victory over the Michigan State Spartans.

With the Gophers having won WCHA regular season titles in 2012 and 2013, the program has now set an NCAA record.

Minnesota has won 18 conference championships in program history. It's the eighth time the Gophers have won the regular-season championship under head coach Don Lucia.

The Gophers will close the regular season Saturday evening at Mariucci Arena against the Spartans. It will also be the 500th game in the history of Mariucci Arena.
