    D Nick Perbix, STC: 0-0-0, -1, 2 PIM, 0 SOG
    Season Totals: 16 GP, 1-8-9, +12, 6 PIM

    Cole Caufield (2019 draft eligible), expected to go in the 1st round of the 2019 Entry Draft, scored twice and added an assist as the US NDTP Under-18 squad shocked the top-ranked Huskies Thursday night in exhibition play. John Beecher (2019 draft eligible), also expected to be drafted in the 1st or 2nd round next summer, notched three assists for Team USA as they broke open a 3-3 deadlock at the 2nd intermission by pouring in three 3rd period goals. St. Cloud scored twice in the last minute of the 1st period to overcome an early 2-0 deficit, and then struck first in the 2nd period to take a 3-2 lead well past the game’s midpoint. But Caufield and Beecher led the way for the US U18 team, scoring four of the next five goals to win the game running away. The Huskies got a goal and an assist each from Patrick Newell (undrafted) and Kevin Fitzgerald (undrafted).

    This will likely be a game that STC head coach Brett Larson chalks up to knocking the rust off a Huskies team that hasn’t played since December 8th, which perhaps is the reason you schedule an exhibition game after a long layoff. #1 St. Cloud State travels to Pittsburgh next weekend for the Three Rivers Classic where they will take on #14 Union on Friday night, and then play on Saturday night against either Brown or Robert Morris.

    The unranked Broncos upset the #4 ranked Bulldogs at home at the Lawson Ice Arena in Kalamazoo with a pair of 3rd period goals to overcome a 2-1 deficit. It marks the first two-game losing streak for UMD on the season after losing to North Dakota last Saturday night. Bolt prospect Cole Koepke helped set up a Justin Richards (undrafted) marker late in the 2nd period to give the Bulldogs the 2-1 lead heading into the second intermission. But Western got goals from Blues prospect Hugh McGing (STL, 2018 5th round pick) and Colt Conrad (undrafted) in the 3rd while Trevor Gorsuch (undrafted) made 14 saves in the final frame to preserve the win. UMD falls to 10-4-1 (4-3 NCHC) and looks to split the weekend series with WMU Saturday night in NCHC conference action.

    North Dakota fired just 15 shots at Pioneer goalie Devin Cooley (undrafted), scoring twice in the 1st and again early in the 3rd to build a 3-0 lead.

Denver hopes to split the weekend series Saturday night against this same North Dakota team.

    After a pair of 2-2 draws last weekend against Ohio State, the Golden Gophers pick up Friday night where they left off, this time battling #15 ranked Michigan to a 2-2 tie. Lighting prospect Sammy Walker celebrated his naming to the USA World Juniors preliminary roster by opening the Gophers scoring with his 4th goal of the season just past the midpoint of the 2nd to knot the score at 1-1. Predators prospect Rem Pitlick (NAS, 2016 3rd round pick) gave Minnesota a 2-1 lead less than two minutes later, but the Wolverines managed the equalizer before the second intermission. UMN goalie Mat Robson (undrafted) made 36 saves, including 18 in a scoreless 3rd period to stave off the Michigan onslaught. The 4-6-4 (2-2-3 B1G) Gophers return to the Ann Arbor ice Saturday night, attempting to break a four-game winless streak.

    St. Cloud never trailed in eight periods of road hockey this weekend, but victory eluded them like a slippery gremlin. Miami, however, rallied six times from one-goal deficits to avoid a pair of losses.

    On Friday night, the Redhawks rallied from one-goal deficits four times to eventually draw the top-ranked Huskies in the first of a two-game NCHC conference series. Lightning prospect Nick Perbix helped set up Robby Jackson (undrafted) for the opening goal just 1:08 into the contest. Jackson scored twice for St. Cloud and Patrick Newell (undrafted) added a goal and an assist to lead the Huskies offensively. On Saturday night, St. Cloud once again opened the scoring in the 1st, allowed the equalizer from Miami in the 2nd, and the two teams trading goals once again in the 3rd.

    St. Cloud’s season record now stands at 11-1-2 (4-0-2 NCHC) on the season after a pair of conference ties and looks ahead next weekend for a pair of conference games back home at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center against the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

    On Friday night, the Gophers opened the scoring with Bolt prospect Sammy Walker setting up Ryan Norman (undrafted) for a short-handed tally.
