Watch: UND's Gornall applies glass-shattering hit on BU's Bellows

North Dakota needed something - anything - to help turn the momentum in its favor during Friday's NCAA hockey opening-round game with Boston University in Fargo.

Enter Mike Gornall with a glass-shattering hit on BU's Kieffer Bellows, the Edina native and son of former North Stars player Brian Bellows.

The hit came with 10:44 left in the game, and the Fighting Hawks down 3-1. Following the delay to replace the glass, UND rallied to force overtime.

BU got the last laugh however, winning in double-overtime.

Five Minnesotans to watch in the men's hockey NCAA tournament

The men’s hockey NCAA tournament is regularly stocked with Minnesota talent. This year’s field features two teams from the state of hockey with a combined 38 Minnesotans on their rosters.

More than a dozen Minnesota products are scattered throughout the other 14 tournament teams.

Here are five Minnesotans to watch in this year’s field:

Justin Kloos
College: Minnesota
Year/position: Sr., forward
High School: Lakeville South

The senior has past success in the NCAA tournament. He was the 2014 West Regional Most Outstanding Player as a freshman and played an important role in the Gophers’ run to the national championship game. He is back in the tournament for a final time eyeing redemption after losing in the 2014 title game to Union. Four players from Lakeville South -- Kloos, Kyle Osterberg, Drew Brevig, John Wiitala -- are in this year's tournament. 

Hunter Miska
College: Minnesota Duluth
Year/position: Fr., Goalie
High School: North Branch

Miska is a finalist for the Mike Richter Award honoring the nation’s top goaltender. He has only four losses this season, never been swept, and owns a 2.23 goals-against average and .917 save percentage. He also has five shutouts. Miska could be the key to the Bulldogs’ national title hopes.

Brock Boeser
College: North Dakota
Year/position: Soph., forward
High School: Burnsville

Boeser played an integral role in North Dakota’s championship run a year ago and earned All-America honors as a freshman. His production has been down this season, but has proven he can perform at the highest levels.  

Jake Oettinger
College: Boston University
Year/position: Fr., goalie
High School: Lakeville North

The freshman goalie is the star of Boston University’s Top 10-rated team defense. Oettinger is allowing just 2.09 goals per game and owns a .927 save percentage. If he gets hot, the Terriers could surprise some teams in the tournament.

Tyler Sheehy
College: Minnesota
Year/position: Soph., forward
High School: Burnsville

The Gophers forward is a Hobey Baker Top 10 finalist and among college hockey’s top scorers with 53 points (20 goals, 33 assists). He also owns a team-high 22-plus rating. If he can provide the consistent clutch goals the Gophers have lacked in recent tournaments, he could help lead the program back to the national title game.
