• Former Twins great Torii Hunter, now with the Detroit Tigers, became only the 14th active player to reach 2,000 hits this week. It wasn’t lost on Hunter how big the accomplishment is, especially considering he’s known more for his fielding than his hitting. “It’s an honor,” Hunter told the Detroit Free Press. “I was always known for my defense. You gotta stay healthy to get 2,000 hits, come ready to play every day. For me to be around this long and [get] 2,000 hits, I’m very thankful.”

•  Yale will face off against UMass Lowell in the Frozen Four in Pittsburgh on Thursday. One of Yale’s best defensemen is former Armstrong standout Tommy Fallen. The sophomore is fourth on the Bulldogs in scoring with 23 points (seven goals, 16 assists), leading all of the team’s defensemen. … In the other Frozen Four semifinal, St. Cloud State will go up against former White Bear Lake standout and Hobey Baker Award finalist Eric Hartzell, the senior goaltender for Quinnipiac. Hartzell was perhaps the best collegiate goaltender this season, posting a 1.55 goals-against average in 40 games. One of the main stars for the Huskies who will be trying to score against Hartzell is Drew LeBlanc, who also is one of the finalists for the Hobey Baker Award. LeBlanc, a native of Hermantown, Minn., led St. Cloud State with 50 points (and a nation-leading 37 assists) this season in 41 games.

•  Twins prospect Chris Colabello was named the International League’s player of the week after a stellar start for the Rochester Red Wings. The first baseman is hitting .455 with three home runs, four RBI and seven runs scored in six games.

• Gophers basketball player Wally Ellenson, an outstanding high jumper who cleared 7-1 in high school, will join the Gophers track team on their trip to Arkansas this weekend. … Mike Valesano of Brainerd, a starting linebacker for St. Thomas, has joined the Gophers football coaching staff as an intern.

Sid Hartman can be heard weekdays on 830-AM at 6:40, 7:40 and 8:40 a.m. and on Sundays at 9:30 a.m. shartman@startribune.com
