I saw Minnesota-North Dakota last night. In the 1st period,Skjei broke up a play in his own zone. Picked up the loose puck. Flew down the ice. Gained the offensive zone. Then sort of just stopped and made a drop pass to the Minny forward who came into the offensive end. Maybe he should have continued going to the net.

Outside of a cross-checking penalty in the second, Brady Skjei played his best game as a Gopher. I noticed him making more good plays in the first period than anyone else and Skjei even had a series where he out-skated 4 North Dakota players. The freshman has responded well since being cut from Team USA’s World Junior squad.

I emailed Mike Russo about 2-3 weeks ago asking about Skjei. It was when Minny started playing after the holiday break. He thought Skjei played his best game of the season against BC after returning from Europe. Russo was covering the Gophers during the lockout.
