Continued: Don Lucia enjoys being Mario's dad, not his coach

Gophers associate head coach Mike Guentzel understands. His most recent head-to-head series with a son was two years ago when the Gophers play host to Colorado College and defenseman Gabe Guentzel.

The teams split the series.

“So, I guess in the house, it was good for everybody,” Guentzel said.

Lucia said that any chance to see a son play firsthand is special. A day after the Gophers’ loss in the WCHA Final Five last season, Don Lucia could be spotted in an Irish jersey and hat, cheering his son onto a CCHA championship.

It’s one of Mario’s favorite memories and one of Don’s favorite hockey moments as a father.

“Last year, I think he only saw three or four games,” Mario Lucia said. “So it’s always nice to have him in the stands. Every time he comes to watch I see how happy he is. He enjoys it because he’s not coaching me.”
