Minnesota Scene: Gophers defenseman Skjei to return to school

  • Updated: July 3, 2014 - 11:15 PM

Brady Skjei will return to the Gophers’ blue line next season. The New York Rangers’ 2012 first-round draft pick informed the NHL club on Thursday that he would return for his junior year of college.

“I can’t wait to come back and build off of what we accomplished last year,” Skjei said in a news release, referring to the Gophers’ appearance in the NCAA title game. “It’s a new season and a new team, but I’m excited about our potential.”

The Lakeville native is currently participating in the Rangers’ prospect developmental camp in New York City along with teammate Vinni Lettieri, a sophomore forward.

Skjei had 14 points (six goals, eight assists) last season and was an All-Big Ten honorable mention pick.
