Great for him, I don't think him going to Maine was a big suprise though. Nothing against Briggs, but there were 2 top notch goalies in high school this year in Lundin and O'Brien, Lundin is gone now, I hope the mighty Rodents can find a spot for O'Brien. This lack of 2 decent goalies at the U is really starting to get to me, of the teams at the WCHA final 5 the Goph's probably had the weakest goaltending. <p></p><i></i>

Congrats to Matt. He should get to split time with Howard--who is awesome and would be a great guy to learn from--and then be the #1 when Howard graduates or goes pro. <p></p><i></i>
