Barriball on Gophers' first line tonight

Posted by: Roman Augustoviz under Gophers game day Updated: March 4, 2011 - 6:54 PM

The Gophers' lines for Friday:

1st/ Mike Hoeffel-Nick Bjugstad-Jay Barriball ... Barriball in lineup after missing last six games with a knee injury. Takes spot of Nick Larson, more of a role player, not a big scorer. Barriball and Hoeffel both have 12 goals.

2nd/ Jacob Cepis-Erik Haula-Jake Hansen. ... This line had four goals and four assists in last game, 5-2 win over Michigan Tech.

3rd/ Nate Condon-Patrick White-Taylor Matson. ... Line has been chipping in with points regularly lately.

4th/ Tom Serratore-Nick Larson-Joe Miller. ... Tom plays his first game against his uncle, also named Tom Serratore, head coach of the Beavers.


1st/ Seth Helgeson-Cade Fairchild

2nd/ Aaron Ness-Mark Alt

3rd/ Kevin Wehrs-Justin Holl

Goalie: Kent Patterson

Notes about Beavers' lineup:

Jordan George-Matt Read-Ian Lowe are BSU's top line and they are dangerous. Have combined for 43 goals. Oh my,

Four players in BSU lineup are Minnesota. One is Gophers transfer Drew Fisher, a junior from Internation Falls, who centers fourth line

Sam Rendle, fr. D from Grand Rapids, Minn., is back in lineup after missing three games with an upper body injury.

BSU won the Gophers' holiday tournament, beating Ferris State and national power Union.
