If Gophers hockey isn’t broke, Don Lucia won’t fix it. The coach says goalie Kent Patterson will start both games this weekend against Vermont, and will keep playing the senior until he needs a break.
Patterson is WCHA goalie champion
Kent Patterson is the 2011-12 WCHA goalie champion. The award goes to the goalie with the lowest in-conference goals against average, and Patterson led the WCHA with a 2.06 GAA. Patterson was also the Gophers' nomination for WCHA Player of the Year, which will be announced next week.
