Continued: Adam Wilcox steady in net for Gophers hockey

Off the ice, Wilcox is also among the quickest to react in a time of need, according to roommate Mike Reilly, a Gophers defenseman. Wilcox does dishes and laundry and is outgoing in the social scene, Reilly said.

Wilcox brings a room to life the same way he stirs up an arena with 10,000 fans. Defenseman Justin Holl describes Wilcox’s saves as having a “flair for the dramatic.” Reilly agrees, adding that he has the ability to shut down opposing first lines and inspire his teammates..

“If we’re not doing too well and the crowd is out of it, he can get us right back into it with a big save, and get the crowd back into it,” Reilly said.

Despite his success in college so far, Wilcox, a sixth-round draft choice of the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2011, said he competes as if he’s still a freshman fighting for a job.

“He played great last year as a freshman, and we expect the same out of him this year and I’m sure we’ll get that,” junior forward Sam Warning said. “That’s just what Wilcox does. He’s always making those big-time saves, so he bailed us out [on Saturday].”

Expect to hear that statement a lot this year.
