Around the Farm: Skjei makes his presence known, notches a goal and assistOctober 14, 2012, by
After being held scoreless in his college debut, Brady Skjei made his presence known last night. Skjei notched a powerplay goal and an assist in Minnesota’s 7-1 rout of Michigan State. Skjei’s goal was on a one-timer from the point, and it was an absolute rocket. Minnesota’s victory last night completed a two game sweep of Michigan State, and may have solidified their standing as one of the top teams in the WCHA
Meanwhile, Steven Fogarty and Notre Dame, one of Skjei’s conference rivals, won the Ice Breaker Tournament in Kansas City with a 3-2 win in the finals over Nebraska-Omaha. Fogarty was again held without a point in the contest, and remains scoreless in his young NCAA career.
One other game of note: Oscar Lindberg scored again for Skellefteå last night. That gives Lindberg a line of 6-7-13 in 13 games, good for fourth in the league in scoring.
