“We’ve got a lot of good seniors and a lot of good juniors that really showed us the ropes and help us all [acclimate] to being here,” Fasching said. “We’re still the supporting cast.”
The supporting cast includes three (Hudson, Kloos, Cammarata) of the Gophers’ top five points leaders.
Lettieri, Guertler and Reilly will see a lot of minutes up front and should be in the lineup most nights, Potulny said.
Brodzinski and Bischoff already are succeeding as Gophers defensemen who score often, and will be required to play a big role in special teams.
“A lot of us came in wanting to be able to fill [the NHL signees’] roles. I think that might be a little bit of a stretch ’cause those [five] are all guys that signed professional contracts and I don’ think any of us freshmen are ready to do that,” Kloos said.
“So we might have felt a little bit of pressure, but we understand we’re different hockey players, so we’re going to fill a different role that the team needs.”
It appears, so far, that their major role is to pile up points.
