Members of the newly formed Big Ten Hockey Conference gathered in St. Paul Thursday for Big Ten Media Day. University of Minnesota Gophers head coach Don Lucia, along with players Nate Condon and Kyle Rau answered questions about the upcoming season.
Minnesota lost a number of key players from last season's WCHA regular-season championship team, but Lucia said his young team this season may have more offensive depth.
The Gophers open the season Oct. 5 against Lethbridge and the Big Ten regular season against Wisconsin on Nov. 29 at Mariucci Arena.
