TRADITION Minnesota’s first intercollegiate varsity team: 1921-22

From the days of John Mariucci and John Mayasich, to the three national titles in the 1970s, to becoming the first team in 31 years to win back-to-back NCAA Championships, few schools can match the tradition and lore of the University of Minnesota hockey program. The 2001 presentation of the 50 greatest individuals in Golden Gopher Hockey history represented a who’s-who in collegiate hockey history. Winning their fifth national title in 2003, the Golden Gophers rank fifth all-time. The trip to the 2008 NCAA Tournament was the 32nd for Minnesota, setting an NCAA record for more appearances than any other school. The Golden Gophers also had 13 consecutive appearances from 1984-97, good for second behind Michigan’s 17 straight NCAA appearances from 1991-2007.

10 Gophers On 1980 “Miracle On Ice” Gold Medal Team Suffice it to say, the two United States Olympic Ice Hockey Gold Medals would not have been possible without the contribution from the University of Minnesota Hockey program. In arguably the greatest moment in American sports history, the 1980 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team shocked the world by defeating Russia and Finland to claim the gold medal. That team was led by former University of Minnesota Head Coach Herb Brooks and included 10 Golden Gophers on the roster. Brooks also coached the 2002 U.S. Olympic hockey team to a silver medal. Twenty years before the “Miracle on Ice,” the 1960 U.S. Olympic Hockey Team skated through the field unbeaten to win the nation’s first gold medal in Squaw Valley, Calif. That squad featured starting goaltender Jack McCartan, as well as John Mayasich and Dick Meredith. Through the years, Team USA has had a noticeable Maroon and Gold presence. In every year since the 1980 Olympic Games, the Golden Gophers have been represented on Team USA. In 2006, Jordan Leopold was a member of the U.S. Olympic team that finished eighth at the Olympic Games in Torino, Italy. In 2002, Leopold joined the U.S. squad for the World Championships, just a month removed from leading Minnesota to the NCAA Championship. This past year, Keith Ballard and Kyle Okposo were members of the USA squad that placed fourth at the World Championships, while Thomas Vanek also played for Austria. The University of Minnesota also leads all WCHA schools with 75 players that have been named to the U.S. National Junior Team since 1977.

Gophers Wearing the Red, White & Blue

The University of Minnesota has always played a big role with USA Hockey. At least one Gopher has represented Team USA in the World Championships or Olympics every year since 1966 and Minnesota has had a representative 31 of the last 33 years at the IIHF World Junior Championships. Jordan Schroeder and Cade Fairchild have participated in the World Junior Championships the past two years and Schroeder is already Team USA’s all-time assists leader. Mike Hoeffel also played in last year’s junior tournament in Ottawa, Canada.

EXPERIENCE

Let’s ice any debate about the best atmosphere in college hockey right here. It’s Mariucci Arena, where the only thing harsher than the Midwestern winter is the reception Golden Gophers’ opponents must endure. – Sports Illustrated on Campus, 2007 With a seating capacity of 10,000 in a unique openconcourse bowl, there simply isn’t a bad seat in the house at Mariucci Arena. Recognized as one of the nation’s best collegiate sports venues, Mariucci Arena features a 200x100 Olympicsized ice sheet and is home to the best fans in college hockey with every game sold out and fans spending years on a waiting list for season tickets. Student season tickets are also gone quickly when they go on sale each September. Minnesota has ranked among the top three teams nationally in attendance every year since the arena opened.

16 * Minnesota Hockey


One word comes to mind when one takes that first step off the escalator and onto the main concourse at Mariucci Arena...TRADITION. Mariucci Arena breathes of tradition; from the pictures of past Golden Gopher teams along the walls of the concourses to the trophies that line the concourses to the banners that proudly display the conquests of those teams. On game night at Mariucci, that tradition boils and turns the arena into one of the finest venues to experience a college hockey game in the country. It is truly an experience to remember. The 10,000-seat building features a 200x100 Olympic-sized ice sheet and does not have a single obstructed-view seat, which is another reason Golden Gopher hockey is one of the hottest tickets in town. Portions of the concourse and lobby design of Mariucci Arena have been duplicated by many new ice arenas, including the Minnesota Wild’s Xcel Energy Center. Minnesota has ranked among the top three teams nationally in attendance every year since the arena opened. Nothing beats the atmosphere Mariucci can produce on a cold winter night. The roar of the crowd can be deafening — like in 1996 when a capacity crowd saw Golden Gopher All-American Mike Crowley fire a wrist shot past a Colorado College goaltender for the game-winning goal to beat the top-ranked Tigers, 3-2. Or, that magical night in 1997 when Ryan Kraft’s third-period hat trick pushed the Golden Gophers to a 7-3 triumph over Wisconsin - and a share of the WCHA title. Or in 2002 when Minnesota dropped its fourth NCAA Championship banner and then proceeded to rout AlabamaHuntsville, 12-1, with a trio of hat tricks from Thomas Vanek, Jon Waibel and Troy Riddle. Or in 2005, when the Golden Gophers gained an appearance in the 2005 NCAA Frozen Four with two overtime wins over Maine and Cornell in the NCAA West Regional. Or in March 2006, when Minnesota celebrated the return of the MacNaughton Cup to Mariucci Arena for the first time since 1997. Moments like these are what build tradition within a program, and Mariucci Arena has seen its fair share of them. Another mark of the tradition of the Golden Gopher program is the wall murals at the west end of the arena. There, pictures of every Golden Gopher first-team All-American are proudly displayed for fans to enjoy and reminisce. Players like the legendary John Mayasich, whose No. 8 became the first Golden Gopher number to be retired; Hobey Baker winners Neal Broten, Robb Stauber, Brian Bonin and Jordan Leopold; and past Gopher greats Mike Polich, Pat Micheletti and Lou Nanne all have pictures on the wall. Even though the building is in its infant stages compared to other great hockey facilities, the new Mariucci Arena does its best to carry on the tradition that encompassed old Mariucci Arena. Besides the team pictures of every Golden Gopher hockey team along the walls of the concourse, there also sit the trophies that players and teams have collected through the years. From the actual trophies that were hoisted by players on the teams that won national championships to the gold, silver and bronze medals that the players who participated on Olympic teams brought home to the replica of the Hobey Baker award which Golden Gopher greats Neal Broten, Robb Stauber, Brian Bonin and Jordan Leopold achieved, Mariucci Arena has it all.

Add in 10,000 screaming Gopher fans and you have the best venue in college hockey.� – Sports Illustrated on Campus, 2007


Mariucci ARENA Mariucci Arena

Built: 1993 • Capacity: 10,000

Fifteen years after the new Mariucci Arena first graced the campus of the University of Minnesota, fans and players alike still are amazed by the breathtaking beauty of a sold-out Mariucci and the atmosphere it provides. In 1993, the old Mariucci Arena, located in front of Williams Arena, took on a whole new face when it relocated just north of its old home. The new Mariucci Arena brings a brand new look to Golden Gopher hockey, not only from the outside, but inside as well. With the best sight lines possible from every seat, no Gopher fan is ever disappointed with the view of the fastest game in town. The Olympic-sized (200 feet by 100 feet) ice sheet lends itself to the free-wheeling style of play of Minnesota’s “Pride on Ice.” With the capability to have ice year-round, the arena brings a truly state-of-the-art facility to the University of Minnesota Twin Cities campus. Mariucci Arena has been a top site for NCAA Regional action, hosting the West Regional in 2000, 2003 and 2005. The facility will host the 2009 Regional this year as well. The arena also hosted the 2006 NCAA Women’s Frozen Four. The 2001-02 season featured the introduction of 18 luxury suites, which increased the capacity of the building from 9,700 to 10,000. It was the third time that seating capacity has been increased, a testament to the support the Golden Gophers receive from the community. Upon entering the building, fans immediately become part of the action as play on the ice can be heard from the George Lyon Lobby. Lyon, a long-time supporter of Golden Gopher hockey, dedicated a generous portion of his estate to Mariucci Arena. The glassed-in entrance features a clear glass elevator, original brick from Memorial Stadium and a display dedicated to the legendary John Mariucci, for whom the building is named. The lobby area and concourse are a virtual shrine to Minnesota hockey, featuring memorabilia that showcases Minnesota’s influence on the sport. Plaques recognize Minnesota’s professionals and Olympians, WCHA and NCAA championship teams and every Gopher player who earned the right to wear the “M.” Most of the displays, as well as the arena banners, were made possible through the generosity of the Blue Line Club. Escalators on either side of the lobby bring fans up to the concourse level where the fastest game in town can be seen. The open-bowl configuration allows fans to watch the game from anywhere on the concourse. Located in the southwest corner of the building, above the concourse, is the Gold Club.

1. Rose Bowl With 205 theater-style seats, the club offers some of the best viewing of Golden Gopher hockey. Behind the seating is the club area where members can socialize before and after games. As players exit the ice they walk across the hall to the Golden Gopher locker room. This spacious area in the lower level caters to the needs of the Golden Gopher hockey players and offers numerous amenities. With two sets of lockers for each person, players no longer have to mix clean street clothes with a malodorous postgame jersey. Setting the mood for the team, maroon “M” tiles are placed intermittently in the midst of the maroon and gold decor. Conveniently connected to the locker room is the equipment room. Instead of having to go one place to pick up equipment and then to the locker room, players have the luxury of picking up their things right next to the door. Also connected to the locker room is the training room. Taping tables, whirlpools and a doctor’s examination room will assist trainers with the rehabilitation of injured players. Several other locker rooms complete the lower level; a visitor’s locker room (named for Robert Ridder, a close friend of John Mariucci); a media work room, and recreational and public locker rooms. One locker room can be used during the season for postgame press conferences. Head coach Don Lucia and opposing coaches’ interviews with reporters can be televised in the press box and club room. Located behind the seats on the south side of the building on the entry level is the new Golden Gopher weight room. This area provides ample space for Minnesota hockey to build its muscle. This weight room is a welcome change from the cramped space in the old North Tower in Memorial Stadium which was used in the days of the old Mariucci Arena. The press box is located at center ice above the concourse, with the television press box directly

The concourse level at Mariucci Arena contains several displays honoring former Golden Gopher greats. From All-Americans to Olympians, Mariucci Arena is a shrine for Golden Gopher hockey and its rich tradition.

In addition to honoring former great Golden Gopher players, the Mariucci Arena concourse contains displays of former coaches and Olympians.

The Gophers have the luxury of a second sheet of ice in adjoining Ridder Arena, the home of the Gopher women’s hockey team. It features an NHL-sized (200x85 feet) rink, giving the Gophers a sheet on which to practice for upcoming road games on smaller rinks. The rinks are connected via underground tunnel.

opposite. Designed specifically with print and electronic media in mind, both boxes allow media easy access and ample work space so that whether you read about the game, watch it on television or listen to it on the radio, the words and pictures will come from the best possible view of the ice. Minnesota also has the luxury of a second sheet of ice, next door at Ridder Arena, the home of Golden Gopher women’s hockey. Ridder Arena, opened in 2002, features an NHL-sized (200 x 85 feet) rink, giving the men’s program a sheet on which to practice for upcoming road games on smaller rinks. Mariucci Arena and Ridder Arena are connected via underground tunnel. Last season, the Golden Gophers drew 198,854 for contests at Mariucci Arena, an average of 9,943 people per home game. The attendance figure was third in the nation behind Wisconsin, which averaged 14,133 fans in the 15,237-seat Kohl Center. North Dakota finished second in the country with an average of 11,709 fans in the 11,406-seat Engelstad Arena in Grand Forks, N.D. Minnesota’s largest crowd of the 2004-05 season was the most people to ever attend a Golden Gopher hockey game at new Mariucci. On Nov. 6, 10,587 fans watched the Maroon and Gold complete the sweep of arch-rival Wisconsin. The second-largest crowd in arena history came in 2003-04 as 10,327 people watched witnessed the Golden Gophers fall to then-No. 1 North Dakota, 4-2.

The arena seating capacity of 9,305 for the first three seasons increased to 9,700 before the 1996-97 campaign, continuing to make Mariucci Arena one of the premier collegiate hockey venues in the country. The nearly 500 person-per game average increase is due in large part to the 395 additional seats added between 1995-96 and 1996-97, the continued demand for standing-room only tickets and also to the continuous fan demand to watch a Gopher hockey game and take in the Mariucci Arena experience. The arena has also hosted many NCAA, National and International hockey and skating events. In addition to three NCAA Men’s Hockey West Regionals, Mariucci played host to the first NCAA Women’s Frozen Four in 2001 and again in 2006. The World Women’s Hockey Championship also visited Mariucci in 2001. The arena also hosted the 2006 World Short Track Speed Skating Championships and the 2000 World Synchronized Skating Championship. HOME ICE PRIOR TO MARIUCCI ARENA Prior to moving across Fourth Street into Mariucci Arena, the Golden Gopher home was Williams Arena, affectionately known as “The Barn.”

MARIUCCI CLUB ROOM & SUITES A spacious club room and 18 luxury suites offer spectacular views of the ice sheet and an opportunity for Gopher fans to socialize before and after the game.

In 1928, “The Barn” opened its doors as the Field House. At that time, the Field House was the new home for the basketball team. Over the years, the non-basketball side of the facility was used as an indoor practice field for the football and baseball teams, as well as other sports. In 1949, the Field House was remodeled and became Williams Arena, the home of both the basketball and hockey teams. It was renamed in honor of Henry L. Williams who was coach of the football team from 1900 to 1921. With the creation of the hockey arena, the hockey team had their first home ice arena on campus. On February 17, 1950, before a crowd of 3,774, the University of Minnesota hockey team played their first game in their new arena. The opponent was Michigan State and the Golden Gophers won the game 12-1. In 1958, Williams Arena was host to the NCAA National Championship tournament. This was the first time the tournament was played outside of Colorado Springs. In 1985, the hockey side of Williams Arena was renamed Mariucci Arena in honor of former Golden Gopher hockey player and coach John Mariucci. On March 13, 1993, the final hockey game was played in Mariucci Arena. In a WCHA league playoff game, Minnesota beat North Dakota 5-4 in overtime before a crowd of 7,449.

The 2006 NCAA Women’s Frozen Four was just one of the many National and International events that Mariucci Arena has hosted.

2009-10 season outlook

Jordan Schroeder

GopherForwards Over 80 percent of the Gophers’ offense returns from 2008-09, led by sophomore Jordan Schroeder, who was the WCHA Rookie of the Year and a second-team All-WCHA selection. Schroeder totaled 13 goals and 32 assists for 45 points as a freshman and centered the top line all season. The Gophers boast four senior forwards in Jay Barriball, Mike Carman, Ryan Flynn and Tony Lucia, who all totaled at least 17 points last season. The four seniors have combined to score 247 career points while playing in a combined 454 games over the past three seasons. Junior Mike Hoeffel is also back after scoring 12 goals and a teamhigh six power play goals in 2008-09. All total, Minnesota has 12 forwards back from last season and also brings in three newcomers. Ryan Flynn

 LEFT WING

There’s a big hole at the top of the line chart where departed firstteam All-American Ryan Stoa’s name was last season, but the Gophers should have plenty of depth to help make up for Stoa’s 24 goals and 22 assists during the 2008-09 season. Junior Mike Hoeffel has shown the potential to be a big-time scorer after totaling nine goals as a freshman and 12 as a sophomore. Senior Tony Lucia has been a consistent presence in the lineup with at least seven goals in each of the last three years. The Gophers will also look to junior transfer Jacob Cepis for additional scoring punch when he becomes eligible at the semester break. Cepis joined the Gophers for practice at mid-season last year after earning allCCHA rookie team honors during 2007-08 at Bowling Green. A trio of returning sophomores gives the Gophers plenty of left wing depth in Jake Hansen, Joe Miller and Nick Larson.

 CENTER

Playmaking sophomore Jordan Schroeder headlines the center position after ranking third in the country in both points and assists per game as a freshman. Schroeder already has two years of experience with the U.S. junior national team and was a first-round draft choice of the Vancouver Canucks last June. Senior Mike Carman gives the Gophers an experienced leader at center after totaling 17 points during his junior season. Junior Patrick White posted 16 points as a sophomore after a 10-point freshman year and looks for a breakout year in 2009-10. Sophomore Nico Sacchetti gives the Gophers plenty of experience at the position and another big plus is the return of promising sophomore Taylor Matson, who had a strong start to the 2008-09 season before a knee injury sidelined him for the last 34 games of the season. Sophomore Nick Larson also saw time at the center position last season.

GOPHER STAT BREAKDOWN

Seniors Jay Barriball and Ryan Flynn give the Gophers an experienced duo at the right wing position with two players who have each appeared in at least 118 career games. Barriball had a 43point freshman season and came back with 34 points as a junior. Flynn had his best offensive season in 2008-09 with six goals and 13 assists for 19 points. Two new faces also will be looked upon to help the team this season in freshmen Zach Budish and Josh Birkholz. Budish missed all of the 2008-09 season with a knee injury, but is a highly-touted recruit, who was drafted in the second round of the NHL Entry Draft in June. The sophomore trio of sophomores in Jake Hansen, Joe Miller and Nick Larson will likely see action at both wing positions this season.

Cade Fairchild

GopherDefensemen Six of the Gophers’ seven defensemen from last season return and they’re joined by two quality newcomers. Senior David Fischer has been a solid presence on the blueline for the past three years and junior Cade Fairchild enjoyed a breakout offensive season in 2008-09 with 33 points to rank third nationally in defensemen scoring. Senior Brian Schack and junior Kevin Wehrs both provide experienced play to the defense, while sophomores Aaron Ness and Sam Lofquist were regulars in the lineup last year as freshmen. Incoming freshman Nick Leddy was the Minnesota high school Mr. Hockey Award winner, while freshman Seth Helgeson was a USHL all-star in 2008-09.

Aaron Ness

 LEFT DEFENSE

Junior Cade Fairchild was among the nation’s highest-scoring defensemen last season and also ranked second on the team with five power play goals. Fairchild will need to find a new defensive partner this season after being paired with R.J. Anderson for much of the 2008-09 season. Sophomore Aaron Ness also gives the Gophers an offensive presence from the blueline after totaling 17 points during his freshman campaign. The Gophers will look for added depth from incoming freshman Nick Leddy, who was the Minnesota Wild’s first-round draft choice in June. The Gophers will get a physical presence from senior Brian Schack and freshman Seth Helgeson. Schack totaled 41 penalty minutes in 14 games last season and Helgeson brings a 6-5, 220-pound frame to the lineup.

 RIGHT DEFENSE

Veteran blueliner David Fischer anchors the right defense position after a solid 2008-09 season when he scored 13 points. Fischer missed five games at mid-season with a leg injury and the team went 2-3 in his absence, allowing 4.4 goals per game. Fischer led all the team’s defensemen with a plus-eight rating. Sophomore Sam Lofquist enjoyed a solid freshman year, playing in 35 of the team’s 37 games, while junior Kevin Wehrs has appeared in 75 games the past two years and could see time at right defense this year after primarily playing on the left side the past two years.

2009-10 season preview Alex Kangas

Alex Kangas

GopherGoalies&Special Teams Having enjoyed perhaps the finest first two seasons of any goaltender in Gopher history, Alex Kangas is back to give Minnesota a solid presence between the pipes. Kangas set a single-season school record as a freshman with a 1.98 goals against average and followed that with a 2.79 goals against average as a sophomore. He had three shutouts last season, including one in the postseason, which is when he’s been at his best with a 1.49 goals against average and .951 save percentage in 10 career postseason games. Sophomore Kent Patterson proved to be a reliable backup during his freshman year and will challenge for additional starts this season. On special teams, the Gophers were among the best in the country in 2008-09, ranking second in overall special teams, fourth on the penalty kill and eighth on the power play.

Kent Patterson

 GOALTENDER

The goaltending is in capable and experienced hands in 2009-10 with junior Alex Kangas and sophomore Kent Patterson both returning in net. Kangas started 36 of the team’s 37 games last season and posted solid numbers for the second straight year with a 2.79 goals against average and .901 save percentage. Kangas has played in 60 of the team’s last 61 games. Patterson appeared in seven games last year, including the final two periods of the team’s WCHA Final Five matchup with Minnesota Duluth. He had a 2.34 goals against average and .925 save percentage in his limited action. Sophomore Jake Kremer is also back as the Gophers’ third goaltender and did not appear in any games last season.

Jay Barriball

POWER PLAY

The power play was one of Minnesota’s biggest improvements in 2008-09 as the Gophers ranked eighth nationally by scoring on 20.1 percent of their man-advantage situations and tallying 37 power play goals. They return all but four of those goals from last year as both units remain virtually intact. Mike Hoeffel scored a team-high six power play goals last year and Cade Fairchild had five goals as the only defenseman on the main power play unit. Tony Lucia and Jay Barriball added four power play goals apiece last season, while Jordan Schroeder and Patrick White each notched three power play scores. Look for Mike Carman to make an impact and Nico Sacchetti to gain some added time in man-advantage situations. Defensemen Aaron Ness and David Fischer will also contribute.

 PENALTY KILL

The Gophers set a single-season school record and ranked fourth nationally on the penalty kill at 88.8 percent in 2008-09. However, they need to replace three of their top penalty killers in Ryan Stoa, Justin Bostrom and R.J. Anderson. Stoa scored four shorthanded goals last season as Ryan Flynn is the only returning player with a shorthanded tally. Jordan Schroeder, Tony Lucia, Mike Hoeffel and Mike Carman will be among the forwards with key roles this year, while Taylor Matson should provide the tenacity that Bostrom gave the Gophers on the penalty kill a year ago. All of the team’s defensemen are important players on the kill with Aaron Ness, Cade Fairchild, David Fischer, Sam Lofquist and Kevin Wehrs among those looking to shut down the opponent’s power play.

DonLUCIA Head Coach • 11th Season

two-time national champion coach and one of five active Division I men’s hockey coaches with more than 500 victories, Don Lucia enters his 11th season as the head coach at the University of Minnesota in 2009-10. Lucia, 51, has guided the Gophers to a stellar 256-126-45 (.652) mark during his 10 seasons. In 22 seasons overall as a collegiate head coach, Lucia has compiled a 535-28174 (.642) record. The mark places Lucia fifth in both career victories and winning percentage among active NCAA Division I coaches. During his tenure at Minnesota, Lucia has helped his teams raise seven banners to the rafters of Mariucci Arena, including back-to-back NCAA championships in 2001-02 and 2002-03. His squads have also captured two WCHA titles and three WCHA Final Five crowns. In addition, Lucia has led the Gophers to seven 25-win seasons and six top-three finishes in the WCHA. He is a three-time WCHA Coach of the Year, winning the award in 1993-94, 1995-96 and 2005-06. Joining the legendary Herb Brooks, Lucia became only the second head coach in Gopher history to lead his team to increasing win totals in each of his first three seasons. After Minnesota finished 20-19-2 in his first year, the Gophers went 27-13-2 in 200001 and reached the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1998. His third campaign saw the team finish 32-8-4 and win its first NCAA Championship in 23 years with a dramatic 4-3 overtime win vs. Maine at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul. In 2002-03, the Gophers took home their fifth national title, posting a 28-8-9 record along the way and beating New Hampshire 5-1 in Buffalo, N.Y. in the title game. With that NCAA crown, Lucia became one of just four coaches in NCAA history to lead his team to back-to-back national titles. The 2002-03 squad also captured the Gophers’ first WCHA Final Five championship since 1995-96 while finishing the season with an eight-game winning streak and 12-game unbeaten streak. In fact, Lucia has done some of his best coaching late in the season, owning a 55-261 combined record during the months of March and April. He ranks seventh all-time with 17 NCAA tournament coaching victories and is also seventh with 13 career appearances in the

event. Five of those appearances came while coaching at Colorado College as Lucia joins current Boston College coach Jerry York as the only coaches to lead two different schools to at least five NCAA tournament appearances. He is one of just six coaches in NCAA history to lead two different schools to the Frozen Four. Lucia led his teams to at least 27 wins in each of the next four seasons, capturing a second straight WCHA Final Five title in 200304 and reaching the NCAA Frozen Four in 2004-05. His 2005-06 and 2006-07 squads both won WCHA regular season titles and earned top seeds in the NCAA tournament. The 2006-07 team had a schoolrecord 22-game unbeaten streak after a season-opening loss and finished 31-10-3 overall. One of Lucia’s best in-season coaching performances may have come in 2007-08 when the team finished 19-17-9 and placed seventh in the WCHA, but had a strong finish with three straight overtime wins to reach the WCHA Final Five championship game and earn an eighth straight berth to the NCAA tournament, which was the second-longest streak in Minnesota history. In 2008-09, the Gophers were ranked No. 1 in the country for two weeks in November before Lucia was diagnosed with sarcoidosis midway through the season, causing him to miss four games as the team finished 17-13-7 overall and fifth place in the WCHA regular season. Lucia has coached 16 All-Americans, including 2001-02 Hobey Baker Award winner, Jordan Leopold and, most recently, 2008-09 selection Ryan Stoa. He also has coached 50 all-WCHA players, 20 all-WCHA defensemen, eight Hobey Baker Award finalists, six WCHA Defensive Players of the Year and three WCHA Rookies of the Year. Leopold’s Hobey Baker Award was the fourth in Minnesota history, marking the most of any school. Lucia has helped many Gophers move on to the next level as well. During his 10-year tenure, 53 of his players have been drafted by NHL franchises including 13 first round selec-

tions. Erik Johnson was taken first overall in the 2006 draft by the St. Louis Blues while Thomas Vanek (2003), Blake Wheeler (2004) and Phil Kessel (2006) were all taken with the fifth overall choice. During 2008-09, 13 of Lucia’s former Minnesota players played in NHL regular season games. Vanek became the Gophers’ first NHL all-star since 1986 and Alex Goligoski was a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins’ Stanley Cup championship team. Wheeler also had a banner rookie season with the Boston Bruins and was named the Most Valuable Player of the NHL Youngstars game. Lucia has maintained Minnesota’s tradition of building a roster built primarily around Minnesota natives, however, he has also brought in several top-notch players from other states and countries to keep the Gophers among the nation’s elite programs. He has been successful in attracting some of the nation’s top players who have participated in the U.S. National Development Team program, drawing 16 players from the Ann Arbor, Mich. squad since taking over the Gophers’ program. Prior to his arrival at Minnesota, Lucia led his previous employer, Colorado College, to an overall record of 166-68-18 (.694) in six seasons. Tied with former Wisconsin head coach Jeff Sauer as the second-winningest coach in Colorado College history, Lucia guided the Tigers to a record of 23-115 record and the WCHA regular-season title in his first season in 1993-94. Colorado College had struggled to an 8-28 record the previous season and had not experienced a winning season in the previous 13 campaigns. The league title was Colorado College’s first in 37 years.

“Coach’s Lucia’s system is extremely player friendly and as a defenseman, he has a lot of confidence in allowing his players to make plays. It’s an exciting style of hockey for his players and is great for the fans to follow. I give Coach Lucia and his staff a great deal of credit for everything we accomplished as a team and that I accomplished individually.”

Keith Ballard 2004 All-American 2004 Hobey Baker Award finalist Florida Panthers defenseman "Coach Lucia is definitely a players-coach. He made me feel comfortable as a student and a player right from the start. Coach Lucia deserves a great deal of credit for the success we had as a team as well as the success I had individually."

“I would consider Coach Lucia to be a players-coach. He allows his players to have input and is very open to listening to their opinions. I also think one of his strengths is preparing a team to be performing its best when the postseason comes around. He's not afraid to make changes during the season if he feels that it will benefit the team when it counts...the end of the year.”

“Coach Lucia is one of the best, if not the best coach in college hockey and his numbers prove it. He gets his players to perform at their very best, not only on the ice, but also in the classroom. He always seems to know what players to play in what situations. He also developes his players to get ready for the next level. Coach Lucia not only made me a better hockey player, but also a better person.”

Buffalo Sabres forward “It was great to play for him. I think he is a good manager and teacher of the game and he has a good understanding of how to work with young kids. He manages to keep everyone happy, which is not an easy task when everyone wants to play and play a lot.”

“He’s a good all-around coach. He’s sociable with the players and he’s the type of coach that gets you going. If you’re having a rough week, he’s going to pull you aside and he’s going to tell you his mind. That’s the type of coach Minnesota and D-I hockey needs. When I was here, he coached us to two national championships and you couldn’t really ask any more of a coach.”

“Coach Lucia gave me every opportunity I could ask for but, at the same time, you have to work hard for what you get from him. I would consider him a player’s coach. He keeps to himself, but he knows when to put his foot down when he needs to.”

“As a player and a person from my freshman year to my junior year, I made leaps and bounds both on the ice and off the ice and I attribute a lot of that to coach Lucia and his staff working with the guys day in and day out. They have a really hands-on approach. He takes a lot of time to show you where you make your mistakes and it’s a really great learning environment.”

Potulny is Minnesota’s only three-year captain since 1947. “Grant was one of the best captains I’ve ever had,” said Minnesota coach Don Lucia, who recently completed his 22nd year as a collegiate head coach. “Grant is going to be a great addition to our staff. He’s going to be in a position to be with us at every practice and his insights will be very positive for our program.” “Those were the best four years of my life,” Potulny said of his days with the Gophers. “I truly believe that every kid who comes to Minnesota should have a chance to play in the Frozen Four and I’d love to help make that happen.” Potulny recently retired from pro hockey after battling injuries throughout his career.

Potulny played in 146 games for the Gophers, totaling 68 goals and 48 assists for 116 points. He is best-known for scoring the overtime game-winning goal in Minnesota’s 4-3 win over Maine in the 2002 national championship game at the Xcel Energy Center.

Western Collegiate Hockey Association The Western Collegiate Hockey Association has sponsored postseason competition every year since 1959. Conference playoff formulas have varied over the years, sometimes being used to determine a tournament champion, sometimes using a playoff to determine the Association’s representatives to the national championship tournament. But since 1982, the WCHA has annually crowned one playoff team champion and presented the Broadmoor Trophy to that postseason winner. Beginning with the 1987-88 season, the WCHA brought together its first-round playoff winners to a large Midwestern venue to contest the WCHA Playoff Championships — also referred to as the WCHA Final Four. The inaugural winner turned out to be Wisconsin, as the Badgers defeated Minnesota, 3-2. With the arrival of the 1992-93 campaign, when the league added a 10th full-time member, the five first-round playoff winners gathered at a predetermined site for what has now become known as the WCHA Final Five. Since the Final Five began that year, the Golden Gophers have captured six Broadmoor Trophies, winning the tournament in 1993, 1994, 1996, 2003, 2004 and 2007. Minnesota’s six titles are the most of any WCHA team since the league went to the current format. The only other WCHA teams with multiple Final Five championship victories are Wisconsin, with titles in 1995 and 1998, North Dakota, with crowns in 1997, 2000 and 2006, and Denver with titles in 1999, 2002, 2005 and 2007. Last season’s WCHA Final Five was played at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, Minn., for the eighth consecutive year. The 2009 tournament drew 82,065 to the Xcel Energy Center, outdrawing the Big 10 Men’s Basketball Tournament by nearly 14,000 fans. The 2007 championship game between Minnesota and

WCHA Success

Spanning six decades and marking its 58th season of men’s competition and 11th season of women’s competition in 2009-10, the Western Collegiate Hockey Association continues to be defined by its history, its tradition and its continuing success. From its founding days in 1951 as the Midwest Collegiate Hockey League (MCHL), on to the Western Intercollegiate Hockey League (WIHL) in 1958, and finally to the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) in 1959, this prestigious athletic conference has developed and maintained a tradition of excellence that truly is second to none. No Division 1 collegiate conference – in any sport – can top the impressive list of national scale accomplishments of the WCHA and its member teams. Since 1951, teams representing the men’s WCHA have earned a record 36 NCAA (national) championships, finished as the national runner-up another 27 times, and qualified for a berth in collegiate hockey’s national championship round – the NCAA Men’s Frozen Four – in 53 of 57 seasons overall. And since it’s founding in 1999-2000, teams representing the women’s WCHA have now captured 10 consecutive national championships beginning the first year of 2000 and on through the most recent campaign of 2008-09 when Wisconsin earned its third NCAA Frozen Four title in the past four years. In addition to its unmatched team successes in national championship tournament play over the years, the Western Collegiate Hockey Association also owns an enviable reputation for producing outstanding coaches and student-athletes, with hundreds of its alumni tracking successes in both international and professional competition. On top of the more than 230 men’s and women’s league alumni who have Olympic experience playing for the likes of the USA, Canada, Italy, Norway, Austria, Germany, Sweden, Finland, and France, conference-member teams and players have also received additional international exposure on a regular basis since 1951. The men’s WCHA has hosted touring teams from the USSR, Canada, Sweden, Czechoslovakia, Latvia, Germany, Italy, Finland, Norway, Switzerland, England and France and has also sent WCHA All-Star Teams to Europe in both 1998 (Switzerland) and 2000 (Norway). The women’s WCHA has also regularly put together all-star teams, including another one for the 2009-10 season which will take on the U.S. National Team at Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul on Sept. 25. Serving as head coach of the U.S. Women’s National and Olympic Teams this year is Wisconsin’s Mark Johnson. In 2009, the women’s WCHA had more than two dozen current and former WCHA players compete in the IIHF Women’s World Championship in Finland, including 12 for Team USA and others for Canada, Sweden and Finland. And in 2008, the women’s WCHA had six of its players help lead Team USA and coach Jackie Barto (Ohio State) to the gold medal in Harbin, China. Just a few of the more than 400 past and present National Hockey Leaguer’s who have roots in the men’s WCHA include the likes of legendary goaltenders Tony Esposito, Eddie Mio Glenn ‘Chico’ Resch and Mike Richter,

defensemen Keith Magnuson, Lou Nanne and Curt Giles, and forwards Lou Angotti, Bill Masterton, Bill ‘Red’ Hay, Red Berenson, Glenn Anderson, Mark Johnson and Brett Hull. The current crop of WCHA stars playing in the NHL include the likes of Zach Parise, Dany Heatley, Mark Parrish, Jordan Leopold, Jason Blake, Tyler Arnason, Mark Stuart, Thomas Vanek, Andy Sutton, Bret Hedican, Matt Carle, Joe Pavelski, Jonathan Toews and Tom Gilbert. In the most recent season of 2008-09 alone, a total of 96 WCHA alums earned playing time in the NHL. In terms of national attendance, both the men’s and women ’s WCHA continue to set the pace among all Division 1 leagues. In the most recent 2008-09 season, Wisconsin (13,785/game), North Dakota (11,719/game) and Minnesota (10,022/game) ranked 1-2-3 in the nation in men’s average home attendance, while Colorado College (5th), St. Cloud State (7th), Denver (10th), Minnesota State (15th) and Minnesota Duluth (16th) also ranked among the leaders. A year ago, the 2009 Red Baron WCHA Final Five (men’s playoff championship) drew a total of 82,065 to the Xcel Energy Center, outdrawing the Big 10 Men’s Basketball Tournament by nearly 14,000 fans. And on the women’s side in 2008-09, WIsconsin (1,654/game) and Minnesota (1,332/game) ranked No. 1 and No. 2 respectively in women’s average home attendance while Minnesota Duluth (4th), North Dakota (7th), Ohio State (11th), St. Cloud State (14th and Minnesota State (19th) were also among the top 20. The men’s and women’s leagues had a combined 71 players named as prestigious WCHA Scholar-Athletes for 2008-09, with 35 of those being repeat honorees. The men’s WCHA also had a record total of 107 student-athletes named to the 2008-09 All-WCHA Men’s Academic Team while the women’s league had 76 student-athletes earn recognition as WCHA All-Academic Team honorees last winter. In terms of exposure, more than 200 WCHA mens’ games were televised in 2008-09, including all five games live from the 2009 Red Baron™ WCHA Final Five by Fox Sports North. All four NCAA regionals, and all three games at the 2009 NCAA Men’s Frozen Four in Denver were also televised live. In addition the league also webcast all three games live via wcha.com and wcha.tv from the women’s 2009 WCHA FINAL FACE-OFF Championship in Minneapolis. The title game of the championship was also televised on a tape delay basis by FS North. This Week in the WCHA, the league’s weekly men’s radio show, marked it’s 13th season in 2008-09. Under the leadership and guidance of Commissioner Bruce M. McLeod and Associate Commissioner Sara R. Martin, prospects for another highly successful campaign for both the men’s and women’s WCHA in 2009-10 appear very bright. Defending WCHA regular season champions are North Dakota on the men’s side and Wisconsin on the women’s side while defending WCHA playoff champions are Minnesota Duluth on the men’s side and Wisconsin on the women’s side.

Oct. 18

Season Overview It was a year of ups and downs as a torrid start to the season and several heartbreaking losses down the stretch headlined the 2008-09 Minnesota men’s hockey season. The Gophers finished 17-13-7 overall and 12-11-5 in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association. Minnesota opened the year with a 7-0-4 start and was ranked No. 1 in the nation for two weeks in November. The Gophers carried their momentum into the second half of the season, knocking off Hockey East runner-up Northeastern to capture the Dodge Holiday Classic and push their record to 10-3-5 in early January. However, four series sweeps in the second half of the year that included numerous tight losses down the stretch ended the Gophers’ streak of eight straight NCAA tournament appearances. The Gophers’ last seven losses of the year were either decided by one goal or by two goals with an empty net score. Included in that stretch was a 2-1 loss to Minnesota Duluth in the play-in game of the WCHA Final Five in St. Paul, marking only the second time in the 17-year history of the event the Gophers failed to reach the semifinals. One of the Gophers’ season highlights came the preceding weekend when they swept St. Cloud State in a WCHA first round series to advance to their 11th straight Final Five and finish the year 6-0 against St. Cloud State. A pair of outstanding individual performances also highlighted the 2008-09 season as the Gophers featured two of the nation’s top six scorers and the top two scorers in the WCHA. Junior Ryan Stoa became Minnesota’s first WCHA scoring champion since 1998 and earned first-team All-American honors while finishing sixth overall nationally in scoring. Freshman Jordan Schroeder was named the National Rookie of the Year by two different publications and ranked third in the country in scoring. Schroeder is also showcased himself as one of the highest-rated draft eligible players in North America for the National Hockey League draft in June. Minnesota’s team featured just two seniors - R.J. Anderson and Justin Bostrom. The Gophers had 10 freshmen on the roster and will likely return over 80 percent of their scoring for the 2009-10 season. National Honors Junior forward Ryan Stoa was named a first-team All-American by

102 * Minnesota Hockey

the American Hockey Coaches Association and College Hockey News. Stoa is the 39th first-team ACHA All-American in school history and is the seventh Minnesota player to receive first-team honors in the past nine years and the third in four years. Stoa also earned first-team All-WCHA honors. Dynamic Duo Minnesota featured the top two scorers in the WCHA on the same line as Ryan Stoa led the league with 36 points in conference games and Jordan Schroeder had 35 points. Stoa is the first Gophers’ player to lead the league in scoring since Reggie Berg in 1998. He also led the conference with 19 goals, while Schroeder shared the league lead in assists with 24. They both ranked among the nation’s leading scorers as Schroeder was third at 1.29 points per game and Stoa was sixth at 1.28 points per game. Schroeder was third nationally in assists per game and finished the year with an eight-game scoring streak. Rookie Raves Schroeder was named the WCHA Rookie of the Year and earned National Rookie of the Year honors by Inside College Hockey and College Hockey News. He was the only freshman to rank among the nation’s top 40 scorers. Schroeder was also named the National Rookie of the Month for November with 13 points in nine games. Schroeder’s 45 points marked the 10th-highest singleseason total by a freshman in Minnesota history. His 32 assists ranked sixth in a single season by a freshman. Tough Finish Minnesota’s last seven losses of the year were all either decided by one goal or by two goals with the opponent scoring on an empty net. Included in that stretch was a 2-1 loss to Minnesota Duluth in the WCHA Final Five, marking the first time the Gophers have lost in the tournament play-in game in five appearances. Consistent Success Minnesota’s 17-13-7 record marked the 10th consecutive year and the 30th time in the past 32 years that the Gophers have been above .500. The only times during that span the Gophers were below .500 were in 1997-98 and 1998-99. Starting Strong Minnesota swept St. Cloud State to win its WCHA opening round series for the 30th time in the past 31 years. Since 1978, the only time the Gophers failed to advance past the first round was in

Season Sweeps The Gophers took all six meetings from St. Cloud State this season, marking the 12th time they’ve beaten a team six times in a season and the ninth time they’ve finished 6-0 against an opponent. The last time it happened was in 2005-06 against Alaska Anchorage. Minnesota beat Minnesota Duluth seven times in 1974-75. The Huskies are the only team the Gophers swept this season, doing so three times. Timely Shutouts Minnesota’s WCHA playoff shutout against St. Cloud State was the Gophers’ first postseason shutout since Kellen Briggs blanked Maine 1-0 in overtime in the 2005 NCAA regional. It was Minnesota’s first shutout in the WCHA playoffs since Adam Hauser had back-to-back shutouts of Alaska Anchorage in the 1999 first round. Alex Kangas’ 34 saves were the most by a Gophers’ goaltender in a postseason shutout in recorded such history that goes back to 1985. Kangas Comes Back Sophomore goaltender Alex Kangas put together three of his best games late in the season with two shutouts over his final three games. Kangas did not have any shutouts during his sensational freshman season in 2007-08, but had three shutouts as a sophomore, including the regular season finale at Michigan Tech and the first round clinching win over St. Cloud State. He was ill for the WCHA Final Five and played only the first period against Minnesota Duluth. Terrific Timing Kangas has been outstanding during the postseason in his two years with the Gophers, posting a 1.49 goals against average and .951 save percentage in 10 career postseason games. In nine career WCHA playoff games, Kangas has a 1.23 goals against average and .959 save percentage. Postseason Play Minnesota was not selected for this season’s NCAA tournament, snapping a streak of eight straight postseason appearances. The streak was the ninth-longest all-time and second-longest in Minnesota history. The Gophers are still tied with Michigan for the

most appearances all-time with 32 trips to the tournament and have the most NCAA tournament wins of any school with 50. Minnesota beat four different teams that qualified for this year’s tournament. Frozen in Time For the first time in school history, Minnesota did not play any of this year’s NCAA Frozen Four qualifiers. It was just the fourth time that no WCHA teams reached the Frozen Four. The Gophers will host 2009 Frozen Four qualifier Bemidji State in a non-conference series at Mariucci Arena next November. Blueline Boost Sophomore Cade Fairchild earned third-team All-American honors from Inside College Hockey after ranking third in the country in scoring among defensemen with 33 points in 35 games. Fairchild had nine multiple-point games after totaling 15 points all of last year. The WCHA featured five of the nation’s top nine scoring defensemen. Getting Ahead Scoring first was critical to the Gophers’ success as they were 151-3 when netting the first goal and 2-12-4 when the opponent scored first. The Gophers were 13-0-2 when ahead after one period and 0-9-3 when trailing. Shooting on Empty The Gophers were outstanding when the opponent pulled its goaltender for an extra attacker, scoring six empty-net goals in nine opportunities. Two of the games the Gophers didn’t score on the empty net were the first two games of the season against St. Cloud State. Special Alert Minnesota was strong on special teams all season and ranked second in the country in combined special teams with success on 54.7 percent of their special teams situations, ranking only behind national champion Boston University. The Gophers led the WCHA and rank fourth nationally on the penalty kill at 88.8 percent. They were second in the WCHA and eighth nationally on the power play at 20.1 percent. A Time to Kill The Gophers ranked among the nation’s penalty killing leaders all season and set a single-season school record with their 88.8 per-

cent success rate, surpassing the previous mark of 88.5 percent in 2000-01. The Gophers led the nation in penalty killing for much of the season after allowing just seven power play goals over the season’s first 18 games. Stopping Short One key to the Gophers’ 13 losses was allowing shorthanded goals. Minnesota surrendered seven shorthanded goals in seven different games and lost all seven. The Gophers had only three losses all year in which their opponent did not score a special teams goal. Better Off-ense With 119 goals in 37 games, the Gophers far surpassed the 200708 total of 109 goals in 45 games. Minnesota averaged 3.22 goals per game in 2008-09 and ranked 13th nationally in scoring offense after averaging 2.42 goals per game in 2007-08 and ranking 43rd in the country in scoring. The Gophers also tallied 37 power play goals after scoring 25 all of last season.

Showing His Skills Senior Justin Bostrom became the first Minnesota player to participate in the NCAA Frozen Four Skills Challenge on April 10 in Washington, D.C. Bostrom competed in the fastest skater and penalty shot competitions. Gophers women’s player Melanie Gagnon also took part in the event.

On to the Next Level Following the season, Ryan Stoa signed an NHL contract with the Colorado Avalanche, opting to forgo his senior season. Stoa, who played four years with the Gophers, but missed most of the 200708 season and earned a medical redshirt, became the 12th Minnesota player to leave early to join the professional ranks since the end of the 2005-06 season. Seven of those players would still have had eligibility remaining to play in 2008-09. In addition, senior R.J. Anderson signed after the season and played in three games with Johnstown (Pa.) of the East Coast Hockey League and two games with Springfield (Mass.) of the American Hockey League.

Minnesota’s highest-ranked wins came over fifth-ranked New Hampshire and sixth-ranked Northeastern. Other ranked opponents include St. Cloud State, Minnesota State, Denver, Michigan, Colorado College and Minnesota Duluth. Ranking Respect Minnesota spent much of the 2008-09 season in the national rankings and was ranked in the top 10 through mid-February. The Gophers were ranked No. 1 in the country for two weeks in November after their 7-0-4 start to the year. Minnesota was in the top 15 of the poll for all but three weeks this season.

Meanwhile, Blake Wheeler, who played the past three seasons for Minnesota and is now with the Boston Bruins, was named the MVP of the NHL’s Youngstars game. Back on the Bench Minnesota head coach Don Lucia missed the first four games after the holiday break due to illness. Lucia experienced headaches and numbness to miss a game for the first time in his 22-year head coaching career. He did attend the Gophers’ game against Northeastern on Jan. 3 and watched from the press box and locker room television. Lucia was diagnosed with sarcoidosis and underwent weekly steriod treatments throughout the second half of the season. Matson Out Freshman forward Taylor Matson missed most fo the 2008-09 season with a knee injury suffered in the first period of the Gophers’ loss to Michigan on Nov. 28. Matson had one goal and played in each of the Gophers’ first 13 games. Matson underwent surgery on Dec. 15 and returned to non-contact skating late in the season.

FOUR REASONS THESE FOUR TEAMS SHOWCASE COLLEGE HOCKEY 1. Title Towns Minnesota, Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin have combined to win 23 national championships in the 62 years of NCAA tournaments. 2. That’s a Lot of Wins The four teams in the College Hockey Showcase are all among the top 15 winningest programs in college hockey history by percentage. They have combined to win over 5,000 games. 3. See You in the Spring - update Minnesota (No. 1, 32), Michigan (No. 1, 32), Michigan State (No. 5, 26) and Wisconsin (No. 7, 22) are all among the top seven schools in NCAA Tournament appearances. 4. Behind the Benches - update Three of the four head coaches in the College Hockey Showcase are among the top six on the winningest active coaches list by victories (Rick Comley No. 3 at 749, Red Berenson No. 4 at 673, Don Lucia No. 5 at 535). Did You Know? • Before Michigan State and Michigan joined the CCHA, these four teams competed for the Big Ten Championship. Between 1959 and 1981, Minnesota captured 10 titles, while Michigan, Michigan State and Wisconsin each took home five (including co-champs). • The first four editions of the College Hockey Showcase were held at neutral sites before the tournament shifted to its current format of on-campus sites in 1997. • The only other school from the Big Ten Conference to sponsor men’s hockey is Ohio State. • Eleven College Hockey Showcase games have gone into overtime, including two in the 2002 and 2007 events.

Minnesota owns a 16-9-3 all-time record in the College Hockey Showcase.

john mariucci

JOHN MARIUCCI Mariucci took a team that had gone 13-13 the previous year all the way to the NCAA Championship game. His team was 23-6 that season, and he was awarded Coach of the Year honors. It was the first of many such honors.

The streets of the small iron-ore mining town of Eveleth, Minn., in the 1920s were full of stick-wielding young boys chasing around a frozen chunk of manure. Of course, this was hockey at its most rudimentary level, and the games would often evolve into fist fights. At that time, no matter who started the fight, the last one standing would have been John Mariucci. With a love of competing, of fighting and of protecting those around him, John Mariucci skated out of this small Iron Range town and became the country’s most important figure in the development of amateur hockey in America. Though his greatest accomplishments would later come as the coach of the Golden Gophers, Mariucci had a stellar athletic career as well. While playing for the University of Minnesota, he became known as the smooth skating All-America defensemen and led the Golden Gophers to an undefeated season and the AAU National Championship in 1940. His technical skills became secondary in his five years as a Chicago Blackhawk. One of only a handful of Americans in the league at the time, Mariucci became captain of the team by defending his teammates. He was a great draw in Capone-era Chicago for the fights that ensued from his protective spirit. One fight with Detroit’s “Black Jack” Stewart kept the fans cheering for half of an hour, and still stands in the NHL record books as the longest fight ever. In 1952, Mariucci accepted the position of head hockey coach at Minnesota, replacing Doc Romnes, who had recorded a 52-59 mark during the previous five years. Right away he seemed to produce a unique positive energy. He took a team that had gone 13-13 the previous year all the way to the NCAA Championship game. His team was 23-6 that season, and he was awarded Coach of the Year honors. It was the first of many such honors. Mariucci was the first coach to stack his roster with Minnesota-bred talent. “This is a state institution and should be represented by Minnesota boys,” he believed. “If they’re not quite as good as some Canadians, we’ll just have to work a little harder, that’s all.” Going up against teams with older, more mature Canadians, Minnesota captured two second-place national finishes and one thirdplace finish with Mariucci at the helm. With this level of success, he gave skate-wearing, stick-toting boys around the state something to shoot for. He threw himself into grassroots development of the state’s hockey program as well. He avidly participated in coaching clinics, attended the opening of hockey facilities in countless cities and towns, helped former players find coaching positions and even encouraged hockey moms to write to city councils to build rinks and develop recreation programs. A good indication of hockey’s growing popularity during Mariucci’s reign is how much the high school tournament grew. Attendance at the tournament increased from 15,523 in 1952 to 46,016 in 1966. He made it every Minnesota boy’s dream to play hockey for the Maroon and Gold. He gave them even greater sights to focus on as well. Invited to coach the U.S. Olympic team in 1956, Mariucci arrived in his ancestral homeland of Italy with a national team that included 11 Minnesota natives, including three from his hometown of Eveleth. The town of Cortina d’Ampezzo wit-

nessed just how far Minnesota hockey had come, as the team stunned heavily favored Canada en route to stealing a secondplace finish and a silver medal. Without Mariucci’s pioneering work, Olympic gold medals would have been impossible. Both of the U.S. gold medal teams were heavily manned with his progeny, including eight Minnesotans on the 1960 “Team of Destiny.” The Golden Gophers’ own Herb Brooks coached an astounding 12 homestaters who went to Lake Placid and pulled off the 1980 “Miracle On Ice.” Mariucci built a powerful and loyal dynasty — Minnesota hockey — by believing and protecting those in his “family.” That leadership pushed Minnesota hockey to the forefront of American hockey, and with that, earned the state a seat at the head table of international hockey. Legend has it that Mariucci got in some scrapes during his Chicago years, and had to meet up with Al Capone for beating up some of the legendary gangster’s thugs. The story may or may not be true, but it’s no wonder that Mariucci came to be known as the “Godfather” of American hockey.

john mayasich In the middle of the 1952-53 hockey season, the Golden Gophers trailed conference-leading North Dakota, 7-1, heading into the third period of a critical Midwest Conference matchup. Suddenly inspired, Minnesota rattled off four goals in the final period, two by a budding sophomore superstar named John Mayasich, giving him a hat trick for the game. Minnesota lost that game 7-5, but the third-period rally served as a springboard for the rest of the season. Subsequently, Mayasich and his teammates won 10 consecutive games, including three over UND and two over Michigan. The Gophers stole the Midwest Conference Championship, and went all the way to the NCAA Championship game in Colorado Springs before losing a heartbreaker to Michigan. This was the dawn of modern Minnesota hockey, and John Mayasich led the way. Looking back, Coach John Mariucci once put it this way: “John brought college hockey to a new plateau. He was the Wayne Gretzky of his time. And today if he were playing pro hockey, he would simply be a bigger, stronger, back-checking Gretzky.” The Eveleth native was a wizard on the ice. A velvety-smooth skater, he had a sixth sense for how a goalie was going to move. He was the first collegiate puckster to develop a slap shot, a weapon that made opposing coaches fear for the health of their players. With a teammate in the penalty box, Mayasich could take the puck, and waltz and weave around the rink without ever passing or losing the puck, until the penalty had been killed. But he was a great passer, as well. In fact, he was often criticized for passing too much. That he was criticized at all is difficult to believe, when you consider that, in his career, he tallied Golden Gopher hockey bests of 298 career points and 144 goals. His totals work out to an amazing average of 1.4 goals and nearly three points per game. To put the totals in perspective, the next Minnesota player on the career goal-scoring list, Pat Micheletti, has 24 fewer goals despite playing in 51 more games. Looking at it another way, Micheletti, in his 162 games, would have had to total 435 points (166 more than his career total) just to match Mayasich’s per-game average! The Iron Ranger is also in the Minnesota record books for most goals and most points in a single game. He scored an amazing six goals against Winnipeg his senior year, and tallied eight points against fierce conference rival Michigan that same season. Mayasich received numerous honors during his hockey life, including being the first Minnesotan to be voted into the national high school athletic Hall of Fame in leading his Eveleth High School team to four straight state tournament championships. He was also a multiple collegiate All-

136 * Minnesota Hockey

American. But his greatness as an athlete was matched only by his humility. When he found himself in the limelight, he never failed to share the credit with his teammates and coaches. Because of military obligations and the lack of professional opportunities, Mayasich did not turn pro after his collegiate career. But he did put on the Red, White and Blue for two Olympic teams and several national squads. In 1956, he joined a host of Minnesotans in traveling to the Winter Olympic Games in Italy and surprising the world by taking a silver medal. Against Canada, which had won seven of the eight gold medals up to that point, Mayasich played the game of his life. He convinced his teammates that the game was winnable by scoring two goals in the first period, and completed the hat trick before the unbelievable 4-1 victory was accomplished. He was also a key player on the United States Olympic “Team of Destiny” in 1960. In the game against the Russians, Mayasich made several key defensive plays, covering or poking away the puck when the Soviets were in position to score. The U.S. held on for the win, marking the first time an Olympic hockey team had beaten the mighty Russians, and giving the Americans their first hockey gold medal ever. John Mayasich was arguably the best player ever to don the Maroon and Gold sweater, and one of the best players in this country to ever lace up skates. But the man of many words, John Mariucci, probably put it best. “The words to describe the boy haven’t been invented,” said Mariucci. “When I say he’s the best, that’s totally inadequate.”

John Mayasich is the only Golden Gopher in the history of the program to have his number retired. Mayasich’s No. 8 was retired on Nov. 14, 1998, before Minnesota’s game against North Dakota.


hobey baker award

Hobey Baker Award

The man whose name resides on the trophy that is awarded to the top collegiate hockey player in the country each April is legendary in his exploits. Hobey Baker has been cited as one of the finest examples of sportsmanship and fair play to have ever played the game. The Hobey Baker Memorial Award symbolizes that and much, much more. The Hobey Baker Award is given annually to the college hockey player who best exemplifies the qualities that Hobey HOBEY BAKER Baker demonstrated as an athlete and as a servant of his country in the early 1900s. He was viewed as a pure sportsman and despised foul play, picking up only two penalties in his entire college career at Princeton University. As a player, Baker opened up the game of hockey with his speed and stickhandling, setting new standards for the way the game was played.

His habit of insisting upon visiting the opponents’ locker room to shake their hands after every contest is a model for today’s players. His dedication to what he believed in was demonstrated in the deepest way when he gave his life in defense of his country as an American pilot in World War I. Since the inception of the Hobey Baker Award in 1981, four players from the University of Minnesota have won the Award. Center Neal Broten won in the award’s first year (1981) and goalie Robb Stauber became the first goaltender to win the Hobey (1988). In 1996, Brian Bonin became the third Golden Gopher to earn the award. In 2002, Jordan Leopold was named Minnesota’s fourth Hobey Award winner at a ceremony held in St. Paul on April 5, 2002. One day later, Leopold became the first Golden Gopher to win the Hobey Baker Award and an NCAA Championship in the same season. Minnesota has more Hobey Baker Award winners than any other program in the nation. In addition, 16 University of Minnesota players have been finalists for this prestigious trophy.

Center 1981 Hobey Baker Award Winner In 1978-79, a young rookie from Roseau, Minn., named Neal Broten set the University of Minnesota freshman scoring record with 50 assists in one season. He then left the Gophers for one year, serving as a center and the fourth-leading scorer on the heralded 1980 gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic Team. He returned to the Gophers for his sophomore season and earned All-America honors for his efforts, leading the Gophers to the NCAA Championship game for the second time in his collegiate career. That year, Broten was the first recipient of the Hobey Baker Memorial Award, winning it in 1981. The end of that 1980-81 season marked the end of Broten’s collegiate career. But for Minnesota hockey fans it was only the beginning. For 11 seasons Broten entertained hockey aficionados of his home state as a member of the Minnesota North Stars. He was an instrumental part of the Stars’ two Stanley Cup final appearances, and was the first American player to notch 100 points in an NHL season in 1985-86. He is one of the top scoring American players in the history of the NHL. When the North Stars moved to Dallas, Broten played a season and a half in Texas before being traded to the New Jersey Devils during the 1994-95 season. Broten was the final piece in the Devils’ Stanley Cup puzzle. He ignited New Jersey’s offense by scoring seven goals (four gamewinners) and 12 assists in the playoffs, becoming the first U of M player to have his named inscribed on Lord Stanley’s Cup.

ROBB STAUBER

BRIAN BONIN

JORDAN LEOPOLD

Goaltender 1988 Hobey Baker Award Winner

Center 1996 Hobey Baker Award Winner

Defenseman 2002 Hobey Baker Award Winner

Robb Stauber was the first goaltender to win the Hobey Baker Award when it was presented to him after his sophomore season in 1988. The Duluth, Minn., native was the backbone of the Golden Gophers that year. He started in each of Minnesota’s 44 games, and recorded a schoolrecord five shutouts en route to a 2.72 goals-against-average. He was named first-team All-American and team Most Valuable Performer as well as being a first-team All-WCHA selection. Stauber still holds numerous goaltending records at Minnesota – single-season records for games played, minutes played, saves and shutouts. He ranks second on the career charts in games played, minutes played, wins, goalsagainst-average and saves percentage. During Stauber’s three-year career at Minnesota, the team posted a 102-34-4 record, including back-to-back WCHA Championships in 1988 and 1989. He also led the team to three straight NCAA final four appearances. His career record during that period was a sterling 73-23-0. A draft pick of the Los Angles Kings, he played five years in the Kings organization, and, during the 1994-95 season, was traded to the Buffalo Sabres. He finished his professional career with the New York Rangers’ organization in 1998. Stauber is in his sixth year as goaltender coach with the Golden Gophers.

The third player in the history of Golden Gopher hockey got his name inscribed on the base of the Hobey Baker Award on March 29, 1996, in Cincinnati, Ohio, when Brian Bonin earned the award he had barely missed out on the previous year. The White Bear Lake, Minn., native led the nation in scoring his senior campaign, and was named a first-team All-American, WCHA Player of the Year, first-team All-WCHA, and team Most Valuable Player in both his junior and senior seasons. Bonin, who became just the second Golden Gopher in the last 11 years to score 80-plus points in a season, also ripped off a 20-game consecutive scoring streak, which extended from the end of his junior season through part of his senior year. In the course of Bonin’s four-year career, the Maroon and Gold made two NCAA final four appearances while compiling a winning percentage of .660 (105-50-17) and winning three WCHA Playoff Championships. Bonin was named to the WCHA All-Academic team three times as he pursued his degree in chemistry. A draftee of the Pittsburgh Penguins organization, Bonin is currently playing professionally in Europe, after spending time with the Minnesota Wild. Bonin started his professional career with Cleveland of the International Hockey League in 1996.

Jordan Leopold capped a remarkable career by becoming the school’s fourth Hobey Baker Award winner and then leading his Golden Gophers to the NCAA Championship the following day in St. Paul, Minn. Postponing a potentially lucrative career in the National Hockey League with the Calgary Flames, the Golden Valley, Minn., native returned to Minnesota to finish what he started. Leopold and his fellow seniors became only the third class in school history to increase its win total in each of their four seasons. In the end, it was Leopold and fellow All-American John Pohl who hoisted the school’s fourth NCAA Championship Trophy. Leopold’s dominance as a defenseman was balanced by his outstanding ability in the offensive end. He became the school’s all-time leader among defensemen with 45 career goals, including a single-season school record 20 during his senior season. The two-time WCHA Defensive Player of the Year finished his career ranked third in school history among blueliners with 144 points and fourth with 99 assists. Leopold became Minnesota’s fourth two-time All-American and the first player in school history to win the Hobey Baker and the NCAA Championship in the same season.

RobertBRUININKS administration

University President

Robert H. Bruininks was appointed the 15th president of the University of Minnesota on November 8, 2002. He has served the University for 40 years, formerly as a professor, dean, and executive vice president and provost. Transforming the U For the past four years, Bruininks has overseen a transformative strategic positioning effort at the University that has raised the bar considerably for the University's academic profile, its service to students and the community, and its stewardship of resources. Already, the results of this intensive effort are visible. In the recent years, the University has undertaken initiatives including: • the adoption of aggressive new four-year graduation goals for each campus • the development of student learning and development outcomes that clearly outline what all University students should know and be able to do at graduation, regardless of academic program • the implementation of tuition reforms enabling many students to save significantly on the total cost of education • the revision of the faculty tenure and promotion code to better recognize and reward outstanding scholarship in all its forms "The University has undertaken significant reform in the context of an increasingly competitive global market for resources, talent, and ideas," Bruininks said. "Our vision is to improve lives through the advancement of knowledge, and our strategic goal is aspirational, audacious, and, I believe, achievable: to become one of the top three public research universities in the world, with a deep and abiding cultural commitment to excellence in everything we do, across all our campuses, research and outreach centers, and offices statewide." Students and Affordability Innovations in the University's student experience, such as expanded undergraduate research and study abroad opportunities, a campus-wide Honors Program for the Twin Cities campus, and an increased emphasis on enhancing teaching and learning, have helped to fuel high student satisfaction rates, increased applications and enrollment, and significantly improved graduation rates. With more than 65,000 students enrolled system-wide—including more than 50,000 on the Twin Cities campus alone—the University of Minnesota is one of the nation's largest. Affordability for students here and at the University's four coordinate campuses remains a primary concern for the Bruininks administration. Launched in 2005, the Founders Free Tuition Program now covers full cost of tuition and required fees for low-income, Pell-eligible Minnesota students statewide. Once fully implemented, the award is expected to benefit 4,700 undergraduates across the University. In addition, Bruininks has made student scholarships the University's top fundraising priority. The Promise for Tomorrow scholarship drive reached its initial goal of $150 million in October 2006 and has now raised roughly $250 million in just five years. Approximately 7,000 students received privately funded scholarships and fellowships each year; the University's new goal is to help 10,000 students with privately raised financial assistance. Leadership and Experience Bruininks's career has centered on child and adolescent development and policy research, and strategic improvement in the fields of pre-kindergarten to grade 12 and higher education. Initially joining the University's faculty as an assistant professor of educational psychology, he has authored or coauthored nearly 90 journal articles and more than 70 book chapters, as well as training materials and several standardized tests.

Both as a faculty member and as an administrator, Bruininks has worked to advance the public mission and responsibilities of the University. He has been a leading advocate for responsible stewardship and reform in higher education, including the strategic reorganization of University of Minnesota Extension and the colleges of Design; Education and Human Development; and Food, Agricultural and Natural Resource Sciences to better serve the state, its citizens, and students. He has renewed the University's commitment to its responsibilities, fostering new opportunities for public engagement and economic development through initiatives including the Council On Public Engagement (COPE), the Outstanding Community Service Awards, the University Metropolitan Consortium, the College Readiness Consortium, and the Academic Corporate Relations Center (ACRC), as well as enhancing the University's focus on issues of sustainability through research structures including the Initiative for Renewable Energy and the Environment (IREE) and Institute on the Environment, and through numerous administrative initiatives and reforms. During his tenure at the University, Bruininks was instrumental in founding the National Center on Educational Outcomes, the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center on Community Living, and the Institute on Community Integration. He has been honored with numerous awards, including the Kellogg Foundation National Leadership Fellowship. He is president emeritus of the American Association on Mental Retardation and has been elected a Fellow of the American Psychological Association and the American Psychological Society. Nationally, he serves on the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board, and chairs the board of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges; in Minnesota he serves as a member of the Itasca Project and the Minnesota Business Partnership. In 2007, Bruininks joined the NCAA Division I Board of Directors. He has also been instrumental in bringing Big Ten football back to the Twin Cities campus with the construction of TCF Bank Stadium, slated to open in Fall 2009. In addition to hosting home football games, the new stadium will provide a permanent home for the marching band, an important new venue for University and community events, and a prominent public gateway to the University's broader mission of education, research and public engagement. Named Executive of the Year by the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal in 2009 and Minnesotan of the Year by Minnesota Monthly in 2004, Bruininks regularly advocates on behalf of the University of Minnesota and its essential role as the state's economic engine. He is also a recognized national and international leader in higher education, serving as chair of the National Association of State Universities and Land-Grant Colleges in 2008 and as a member of the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. In November 2005, Bruininks led a group of Minnesota educators to China as part of the governor's trade delegation. In May 2006, he headed a delegation of University leaders to Norway to renew student exchange agreements and deepen research ties with that country's leading universities, and in May 2007, he led a delegation to Iceland to renew an historic 25-year agreement with the University of Iceland and expand upon it, particularly in the health sciences. Personal Notes President Bruininks earned his bachelor of arts degree from Western Michigan University, and his master of arts and doctor of philosophy degrees from George Peabody College (now Vanderbilt University's Peabody College of Education and Human Development). He and his wife, Dr. Susan Hagstrum, have three grown sons and three grandsons. In their free time, they enjoy riding American Saddlebred horses and spending time at their cabin on northern Minnesota's Gunflint Trail.


JoelMATURI Athletics Director

In his eighth year as director of athletics at the University of Minnesota, Joel Maturi has engineered a complete transformation of Golden Gopher athletics. Since being named the first director of athletics of Minnesota’s merged men’s and women’s departments on July 12, 2002, Maturi has combined an uncompromising vision of the future and his unique brand of leadership with a tireless dedication to guide Gopher athletics on a clear course toward becoming a model NCAA Division I athletics department. A native of Chisholm, Minn., Maturi’s tenure at Minnesota has been marked by significant positive change in virtually every aspect of the department. And from his focused efforts has emerged a level of broadbased achievement that year after year places Gopher Athletics among the nation’s most successful overall programs. Looking back, it’s easy to discern the building blocks of Minnesota’s success under Maturi. Fiscal responsibility, balanced budgets and refocused fund-raising efforts have yielded increased opportunities and unprecedented growth. The development of a first-class academic support program continues to see Gopher student-athletes earn their degrees at ever improving rates. A renewed emphasis on NCAA compliance has ushered in a new era of integrity. And a distinctive ability to foster cooperation as a key and trusted member of University Robert Bruininks’ leadership team has resulted in unprecedented levels of cross-campus collaboration. The rapidly evolving world of intercollegiate athletics in the 21st century requires bold and innovative leadership. And that’s exactly what Maturi brought to his home state’s flagship university when he assumed the helm of Gopher athletics in the summer of 2002. To say that Minnesota’s athletics department was at a tipping point when Maturi arrived is to perhaps understate the challenges facing the program. Gopher Athletics was projected to run a $31 million deficit over the next four years and in order to help cope planned to eliminate three sports. Building a state-of-the-art stadium to bring football back to campus was considered a pipe dream. Undaunted, Maturi swiftly set in motion a plan to restore the financial integrity of Gopher athletics. Balanced budgets followed and all three sports were retained. Most significantly, however, the dream of returning Gopher football to its rightful place campus is now a reality as Minnesota opened the doors to the 50,000-seat TCF Bank Stadium – the Big Ten’s first new on-campus football stadium built since 1960. Upgrades to virtually every Minnesota Athletics facility have also taken place under Maturi, including a $600,000 renovation of the playing surface of historic Williams Arena this past summer, and funds are currently being raised to support the construction of a new stadium for Gopher Baseball. In addition to leading the way to meet the Gophers’ needs for world-class facilities, Maturi’s tenure has been marked by continual athletic and academic success by Minnesota’s 25-sport department. Gopher athletic programs have accumulated four national championships, 30 Big Ten or WCHA regular season titles and five conference postseason crowns. Minnesota has also placed in the top 30 of the Learfield Directors’ Cup final standing each year of his term, including a 14th-place finish in 2008-09 that ranks as the third-best finish in school history that saw Gopher teams claim six conference titles, advance 20 teams to postseason competition, produce 40 first team All-Big Ten honorees and 41 All-Americans, 257 academic all-conference selections (second-most in the Big Ten) and 12 CoSIDA academic all-district award winners. Minnesota was also among just a handful of programs to see its football team earn a bowl berth (Insight Bowl) and have both its men’s and women’s basketball teams as well as its baseball program qualify for the NCAA Tournament. Gopher women’s hockey, meanwhile, made its sixth appearance in the Frozen Four. Gopher Athletics once again was trusted to host several prestigious postseason championships during 2008-09, headlined by NCAA first- and second-round competitions in both men’s basketball and men’s ice hockey as well as the men’s gymnastics championships. It was hardly an unprecedented season under Maturi for the Gophers, who claimed three Big Ten crowns, advance 16 sports to postseason play, produce 225 academic all-conference selections and 19 academic alldistrict honorees in 2007-08. The 2006-07 season was a banner year as well as wrestling won its third NCAA championship in the seven years. The Gopher wrestlers were also one of six teams to take home conference championships. The men’s swimming and diving team won its fifth Big Ten title in seven years and placed 10th at the NCAA Championships. The men’s hockey team won the WCHA regular season and Final Five titles while the women’s indoor track and field team won its first Big Ten crown. Rowing also won its first Big Ten title and posted a program-best sixth place finish at the NCAA Championships. Men’s golf added its third Big Ten title since 2002 and posted a strong ninth place finish at the NCAA Finals. The Gopher athletic department finished 20th in the Director’s Cup in 2006-07, marking the 13th straight year that Minnesota has placed in the top 25 of the rankings that chart overall athletic success among all NCAA Division I programs. During the 2005-06 academic year, Maturi guided a department that produced 32 All-Americans, four conference championships and 22 individual conference championships. Minnesota also produced 40 first-team All-Conference performers, five Academic All-Americans and 14 Academic All-District honorees. The Gopher wrestling and women’s hockey team each finished second in the nation, while men’s golf (3rd), women’s cross country (9th), men’s gymnastics (9th) and men’s swimming & diving (11th) added four more top-15 national finishes. Wrestling, women’s gymnastics, men’s hockey and women’s track & field each won Big Ten Conference team titles. Overall, 16 of the Gophers’ 25 sports finished in the top three of the conference during 2005-06, and 19 advanced to NCAA postseason competition. The Gopher football team qualified for its fourth consecutive bowl game and sixth in seven years with a trip to the Music City Bowl.

administration

The department also was involved in hosting several Big Ten, WCHA and NCAA Championships during the year, most notably the 2006 Division I Men’s Basketball Minneapolis Region Championship and the 2006 NCAA Women’s Frozen Four. Women’s rowing had its highest finish ever at the Big Ten Championships, rowing to a second-place finish on Lake Phalen in St. Paul. The Baseline Tennis Center hosted the Big Ten men’s tennis championships for the first time, while Ridder and Mariucci Hockey Arenas hosted women’s and men’s WCHA first round competition, respectively. In March of 2007, Minnesota became the first school to ever host the NCAA Men’s and Women’s Division I Swimming & Diving Championships in consecutive weeks. Across University Avenue, Williams Arena hosted the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball First and Second Rounds for the third time in four years. In 2003-04, the women’s hockey team won the national title for the second straight season while three women’s programs (women’s basketball, volleyball and women’s basketball) all reached their respective NCAA Final Fours. Volleyball made the championship match and basketball qualified for its first national semifinal. The Gophers won four conference titles in 200304 and two conference postseason titles. In Maturi’s first year as athletic director, Minnesota won five regular season titles while the men’s hockey team won the WCHA Final Five and continued the momentum into the NCAA Tournament where it won its second straight national championship. On the academic front, more than 50 percent of Gopher student-athletes have maintained a grade point average of 3.0 or higher and 27 studentathletes have earned Academic All-America status during Maturi’s tenure. The foundation for Gopher football’s return to campus was laid during the 2004-05 academic year, when Maturi was instrumental in adding credibility to the Gopher stadium campaign by negotiating a $35 million corporate sponsorship with TCF Bank for naming rights to the new on-campus stadium. It was the largest corporate sponsorship of its kind involving college football. Maturi’s efforts were even more legitimized in May 2006 when the Minnesota State Legislature approved overwhelmingly to support the Gopher football return to campus. The bipartisan vote will allocate $137 million to the $288.5 million project. In addition to TCF Bank Stadium and the new playing surface in Williams Arena, Maturi has overseen complete renovations to both the men’s and women’s basketball locker rooms and the football training and equipment rooms in the Gibson-Nagurski Football Complex. In March of 2007, Maturi oversaw the grand opening ceremony for a new boathouse that serves as the home of the women’s rowing program on the MIssissippi River. Maturi, 64, increased his leadership role within the Big Ten and NCAA during the past few years by being named to several prominent committees, most notably the NCAA Division I Management Council. He has served as the Management Council’s liaison to the NCAA Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee for the past year. Maturi is has also served as a member of the NCAA Division I Men’s Ice Hockey Committee, and will chair this committee during the 2007-08 season. Prior to his arrival, Maturi was the Director of Athletics at Miami University (Ohio). At Miami, Maturi was responsible for the management and leadership of 19 sports programs, all support staffs and nearly 600 student-athletes. His first season at Miami was an extremely successful one. The synchronized skating team won a national championship, the men’s basketball team reached the NCAA Sweet 16, the volleyball team earned its first NCAA Tournament win, the men’s cross country team advanced to the NCAA meet and the football team won 10 games against an impressive schedule. That year, six teams won Mid-American Conference titles while five coaches garnered Coach of the Year honors. During his tenure at Miami, Maturi spearheaded fund-raising efforts for two important and necessary projects. In his final year, the Walter L. Gross Jr. Family Student-Athlete Development Center was opened and a new baseball field, McKie Field at Hayden Park, was dedicated. Maturi also made an impact on the campus and the community in Oxford, Ohio. He was a recipient of a Campus Impact Award, received an award from the Butler County Board of Mental Retardation & Developmental Disabilities for his efforts to help those in need, the Miami Alumni Association’s A.K. Morris Award for his service to the Association and the Myrtis Powell Building Community Award. In addition, he chaired the Central Collegiate Hockey Association (CCHA) executive council in 2001-02, and also served as the chair of the NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship Committee for Region 4 and was the liaison for the men’s basketball coaches in the MAC. Prior to his time at Miami, Maturi served as the Director of Athletics at the University of Denver from 1996-98. At Denver, Maturi led the school’s move from Division II to Division I and oversaw the search for Division I conference affiliation. Maturi also assisted in the planning and development of a $50 million Sports and Wellness Center and a $2.1 million tennis complex. Maturi is no stranger to the Big Ten. From 1987-96, he worked at the University of Wisconsin. While there, he assisted in taking the financially challenged and struggling athletics program to profitability and success. From 1992-96, he was the Associate Director of Athletics with direct responsibility for all aspects of the football, ice hockey, wrestling, softball, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s rowing, men’s and women’s indoor and outdoor track and field teams, as well as the office of academic affairs. He also chaired the Department’s “Support” Program, a wellness program for student-athletes and staff. Maturi was named the Wisconsin Sports Person of the Year in 1993. Before entering the college ranks, Maturi spent 19 years as a high school coach and administrator at Madison Edgewood High School. He coached football, basketball, baseball and track and field, leading his teams to 10 state tournaments. Maturi was inducted into the Wisconsin Basketball Hall of Fame in 1992. Maturi received a B.A. in government from the University of Notre Dame in 1967. He also served on the support staff of Ara Parseghian’s first national championship team. He earned a master’s degree and certification for educational administration from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville in 1985. Maturi and his wife, Lois, have three grown children, Mark, Katie and Anne.
