Continued: Gophers' Fab Five hoping to finish with an NCAA title

“Everyone wants to be the class that helps out and turns a program around, and we’ve been fortunate to play with some good players throughout our four years here,” Serratore said.

Throughout the season, Serratore has been referred to as the Gophers’ “heart and soul.” The almost 25-year-old forward isn’t flashy, has a quiet demeanor, but is the type of guy teammates rally around because of his work ethic.

Lucia has started to target players like Serratore while recruiting. Their unselfish attitude will help maintain what this group of seniors has set in motion, he said.

“Every time one of the freshmen crack a joke that we’re one of the old guys, we always remind them we’re the five legends of the team or the five legacies that have stuck around for four years,” Condon said.

The co-captain stole the Fab Five nickname from Michigan basketball’s team in the early 1990s and chuckles at the comparison.

However, he’s betting college hockey’s Fab Five can finish the job Michigan’s storied group never could: Win a national championship.
