All things Gophers hockey

Gophers freshman Tyler Sheehy is Big Ten's first star in hockey

Tyler Sheehy was named the Big Ten First Star of the Week after scoring three goals and setting up another in the Gophers' weekend sweep of Ohio State.

The freshman forward scored a goal in Friday's 3-2 overtime win and had two goals and an assist in Saturday's 5-4 overtime victory.

Justin Selman of Michigan was the conference's second star and Wisconsin's Ryan Wagner the third star.

Sheehy, 20, played the past two season in the United States Hockey League after graduating from Burnsville High School.

Gophers' Collins among five state candidates for junior national team

Gophers defenseman Ryan Collins is one of five Minnesota natives among 29 players invited to the U.S. Junior National Team camp. Collins was a member of last year's team.

The 23 players competing in the World Championships Dec. 26-Jan. 5 in Helsinki will be chosen after camps in Boston (Dec. 14-18) and Finland (Dec. 19-24).

Minnesotans are forwards Kieffer Bellows (Edina), Paul Bittner (Crookston) and Brock Boeser (Burnsville); and defensemen Will Borgen (Moorhead) and Collins (Bloomington).

Bellows plays for the U.S. Development Team, Bittner for Portland of the Western Hockey League, Boeser for North Dakota and Borgen for St. Cloud State.

The team's roster is here.

Wild top prospect Alex Tuch was not invited after being on the team in 2014.

Seven camp invitees were on last year's junior team, including Collins; forwards Auston Matthews and Sonny Milano; defensemen Brandon Carlo and Zach Werenski; and goalies Brandon Halverson and Alex Nedeljkovic.

Wild prospect Louie Belpedio, who plays at Miami University, was also invited.
