Three Gophers hockey recruits, eight Minnesotans on display in All-American Prospects Game

Posted by: Jason Gonzalez Updated: September 26, 2013 - 4:43 PM

USA Hockey will provide Gophers fans a glimpse into the program's future. A free live stream of Thursday night’s All-American Prospects Game will showcase three Gophers recruits already committed to the team.

Defensemen Ryan Collins and Jack Glover, and forward Jack Ramsey will be featured in the showcase game scheduled for 6 p.m. (CDT) at CONSOL Energy Center, home of the NHL's Pittsburgh Penguins.

In addition to these three committed Gophers, five other standouts from the state of Minnesota were selected to skate in the game. Forwards Shane Gersich, Keegan Iverson, Tyler Sheehy, and defensemen Jack Dougherty and Hunter Warner will also be on display.

Warner is committed to Minnesota State University and Gersich to North Dakota. Iverson, Sheehy and Dougherty are currently undecided.

Minnesota’s eight representatives are more than any other state.

USA Hockey annouced that 26 of the players featured Thursday night are projected to be drafted in the first three rounds of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.

Full roster and link to live stream.
