    great news

    Top NHL pick will play for Gophers


    Defenseman Erik Johnson, the No. 1 overall pick in last month's NHL draft by the St. Louis Blues, will play for the Gophers men's hockey team this season. The Blues website reported the decision today.
    "We feel this is a win-win situation for Erik to be going to an excellent hockey program to continue his development," said new Blues President John Davidson. "This is beneficial for his career, short term and long term, to play for the Gophers. He will have an opportunity to compete for an NCAA National Championship [in St. Louis in April of 2007], play in the World Junior Championships and enjoy university life."

    Johnson, 18, a native of Bloomington, has spent the previous two years with USA Hockey's National Team Development Program in Ann Arbor, Mich.

    Johnson, 6-4, 222 pounds, had 16 goals and 33 assists playing for the U.S. National Under-18 team in 2005-06.

    Purple Ride this should be in the Clubhouse forum.

    With that said has anybody heard if Kessell will be back with the Gophers?
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    who wouldnt want to earn a 1st overall NHL paycheck? he cant sign a contract or accept any bonus money if hes still playing NCAA hockey..hes very much ready to play on the 2nd defensive line in st louis, so why would he choose to play college?
    People who see life as anything more than pure entertainment are missing the point.
