Jimmy Mullin had his first multi-point game of the year with a goal and an assist in Miami’s second win in as many nights over the Nanooks.

Miami freshman goalie Ryan McKay had the shutout for the RedHawks. McKay is the former goaltending partner of Lightning prospect Adam Wilcox. The two were together in USHL Green Bay before the Gamblers decided to keep McKay and trade Wilcox.

Adam Wilcox registered his first collegiate point when he had an assist on Minnesota’s fourth goal in a 5-1 win in Vermont over the Catamounts.

The forward had a tap-in goal into the open side of Wilcox’s net. Wilcox has given up one goal or less in six of his starts this year. The Gophers are working on a 5-game win streak in which Wilcox has won all five and given up just six goals.

Minnesota added an empty net goal.

No. 9 Western Michigan Broncos 3 @ Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks 2

Canisius Griffins 0 @ No. 2 Minnesota Golden Gophers 1

G Adam Wilcox, MIN: Win, 20 saves on 20 shots, shutout, *Second Star*
Season totals (pregame): 3 GP, 3-0-0, 1.14 GAA, .934 sv%, 1 SO

Freshman Adam Wilcox started for the Gophers and turned in a gem, stopping all 20 shots he faced for his first collegiate shutout. Wilcox was composed in the net for the entirety of the game, showing good positional work and displaying above-average athleticism. His athleticism was on full display late in the third period while protecting a 1-0 lead. Wilcox stopped an opposing forward on a partial breakaway by first using a pokecheck, then recovering to close his legs as the forward was able to corral the loose puck and try to go 5-hole. With 22 seconds left in the game Wilcox moved from his right to his left and lunged at a lone Griffin staring at an open net. He knocked the puck out of the air with his glove and the puck was cleared.

The hometown scorers rightly gave Wilcox the Second Star, but the first should have gone to Griffins goaltender Tony Capobianco, who was spectacular for Canisius. Capobianco was beaten on a screened deflection 12 seconds into the game, then stopped the next 41 shots he faced. Capobianco got Third Star.

Canisius – alma mater of Lightning prospect Cory Conacher – was looking for its first win over a WCHA club. Conacher’s younger brother, Shane, will attend Canisius next year on a hockey scholarship.
