Around the Farm: Skjei makes his presence known, notches a goal and assist

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.

After the jump, check out the scoring lines from the NCAA games, SEL, and the three prospects from the CHL that were in action last night.

    I saw like 95% of the CT Whale game today. A few things i noticed
    Newbury scored the Whale’s first goal on the powerplay and it was assisted by collins and kreider.
    I didnt really notice Thomas. However i saw Kreider on the ice 24/7. I thought Cam Talbot was still injured but he was the backup and sat on te bench the whole game. The Whale’s 2nd goal was scored by the big man Kyle Jean. He was assisted by JT Miller and Logan Pyett in the 2nd quarter. The Icecaps score with like 2.2 seconds left before the 2nd intermission. The icecaps scored an early 3rd period goal to take the lead and win. Michael Haley delivered a nasty hit in the first minute or so in the first period right in front of the Icecaps bench. The icecap player hit Haley with the stick (not sure what they all that) and Haley turned around and gave a look (kinda looked like he wa smiling or something). Haley delivered a few big hits throughout the game. Gilroy looked impressive. In the first period he made a nice long pass to someone which led to a good scoring chance. Btw Kreider was penalized twice for a total of 4 minutes (tripping and goaltender interference) looked like he was pushed into the goaltender but they called it. The icecaps did score on the powerplay when collins was in the box.

      @Tim B, thanks for the feeback. It’s tough to get a good read on these kids when my streams aren’t working.

        @Dave, your welcome. Thomas did set another whale player up in front of the net but missed or something ( my vision was obstructed, i had to change seats multiple times to see it better) btw i forgot to mention that there were so many empty seats. That Larry guy who is at like every Ranger game was there (few seats away from me). But. Yeah not many people in attendance. Kinda sad.

          @Tim B, it is an AHL game, so I guess it’s expected they won’t sell out a 15k capacity arena?
