The Gophers released their men's hockey roster today.

With the departure of Nick Leddy to the Blackhawks and Josh Birkholz to junior hockey, the final two additions are Minnetonka's Justin Holl and Max Gardiner.

The  27-player roster includes 10 freshmen: Mark Alt, Nick Bjugstad, Nate Condon, Gardiner, Eric Haula, Holl, Jared Larson, Jake Parenteau, Nate Schmidt and Tom Serratore.


A quote from the Don in the release: “We believe we have a good mixture of returning and incoming players and look forward to a competitive season. The team has had a great off-season in the weight room and has made tremendous strides physically.”
