He is in the right position. Square to the shooter and not giving up rebounds. Making the saves he needs to and is taking a few away. The D has played well. Giving up a lot of shots but from bad angles and far out.

The knock on the Gophers has been, pepper them and they will fail. The D is small and weak and the team is geared towards offense. Get rebounds and out muscle hustle them.

6'3" 196 lbs

6'2" 212 lbs

That's 4 of the top 7 defensemen (Helgeson, Holl, Alt and Thompson) The blue line is young (with one upperclassmen) but not as small as recent years.
