Justin Holl's game-winning, shorthanded goal in the final seconds of the Frozen Four hockey tournament against North Dakota earlier this month has been named the top play in the NCAA this season.

Watch his play in the Top 10 Men's Ice Hockey Plays of the Year.

The incredible play was Holl's first goal of the season and sent his team to the national championship game against Union College.

Though the Gophers would lose that game to Union two nights later, Holl's goal against North Dakota will go down as one of the most exciting in program history.
