#9 Providence Friars 4 @ #7 Denver Pioneers 4 OT

F Cole Guttman, DEN: 1-0-1, +1, 0 PIM, 3 SOG, 9/13 FO, *Second Star*
Season Totals: 12 GP, 7-4-11, +10, 6 PIM

The freshmen stars shone Saturday night in the back half of the weekend series between the 9th ranked Friars and the 7th ranked Pioneers, with these two teams battling to a 4-4 draw. Golden Knight freshman prospect Jack Dugan opened the scoring early in the 1st for Providence, but Bolt prospect Cole Guttman struck back a scant 7 seconds later to knot the score at 1-1. It was Guttman’s 7th goal of the season and vaulted him as the sole goal scoring leader among NCAA Division I freshman. Guttman was 69% on draws and earned 2nd Star honors for the game. The Friars responded early in the 2nd with a pair of goals to take a 3-1 lead, the latter a power play marker by Kasper Bjorkqvist (PIT, 2016 2nd round pick) that was assisted by Dugan, who now leads all Div. I freshman in points (14) and power play points (7). But the resilient Denver squad battled back later in the 2nd, striking for a pair of power play goals of their own in the span of 42 seconds, the first of which tallied by Flames prospect Emilio Pettersen who leads Div. I freshmen in power play goals (4), power play points (7) and second only to Dugan in points (14). Both goalies would close the door in the last half of the game to preserve the tie with Friar netminder and Oiler prospect Hayden Hawkey (MTL, 2014 6th round pick) making 34 saves and Pioneer backstop and Red Wing prospect Filip Larsson totaling 42 saves. Denver’s season record now stands at 7-3-2 (3-3 NCHC), with the Pioneers taking next weekend off before hitting the road to Grand Forks Dec 7th for a two-game NCHC tilt against North Dakota.

After the Big Red got out to a 1-0 1st period lead, the Crimson snapped off the next four behind a pair of goals from Henry Bowlby (undrafted) and three assists from Casey Dornbach (undrafted). Dornback, former Edina high school captain and teammate of Bolt prospect Sammy Walker, leads all NCAA Div. I freshmen in power play assists (7), power play points (7), and second among freshmen in assists (10). Cornell drops to 5-4 (3-1 ECAC) on the season and looks ahead next weekend to a pair of road ECAC conference games against Dartmouth and a rematch against Harvard.

Tyler Sheehy (undrafted) scored a pair of power play goals midway through the 2nd period to give the Gophers a 2-0 lead over the Spartans Saturday night in Big 10 conference play, but Michigan State stormed back with four straight, led by the undrafted Taro Hirose with a goal and a two assists. For Hirose, that’s good for 3rd in points (19) among all NCAA Division I men. Lightning prospect Ryan Zuhlsdorf missed his third consecutive game as Minnesota dropped to 4-6-1 (2-2 Big Ten) on the season. The road gets tougher next weekend for the struggling Gophers as they welcome 5th ranked Ohio State to the 3M Arena for a pair of Big 10 conference games.

Denver goalie Devin Cooley (undrafted) made 39 saves as the #7 Pioneers fought off a tough 9th ranked Providence team.

Bolt prospect Sammy Walker extended his point streak to 4 games, notching his 3rd of the season and adding two assists en route to Third Star honors as the Gophers unleash a season of frustration on the hapless Spartans. Minnesota got a pair of goals from both Tyler Sheehy (undrafted) and Brannon McManus (undrafted), and Brent Gates (ANA, 2015 3rd round pick) added three assists. Don't look now but after a bit of a slow start, Walker is 2-4-6 in his last 3 games. Fellow Lightning prospect Ryan Zuhlsdorf missed his second straight game, leading to speculation he may have been injured in that first game last weekend against St. Lawrence. The Gophers improve to 4-5-1 (2-1 Big Ten) on the season and draw a rematch Saturday night against these Spartans.

Will Reilly (PIT, 2017 7th round pick) scored in the first to give RPI an early 1-0 lead, and then setup Jakub Lacka (undrafted) in the 3rd for what would be the game-winner power play score as the Engineers bested the River Hawks at the Tsongas Center in Lowell. Lightning prospect Ryan Lohin fired a game-high 6 shots and extended his five game point streak, setting up Jon McDonald (undrafted) early in the 3rd for the 1-1 equalizer. UML drops to 6-6-1 (3-3-1 HEAST) on the season and travels to Troy, NY for the back half of this weekend home-and-home against RPI on Sunday afternoon.

G Ty Taylor, UNH: T, 64:14 MINS, 3 GA, 25 SVS

Bolt prospect Ty Taylor battled to a 3-3 draw against Miami netminder Ryan Larkin (undrafted) in this 3rd start for UNH on the season. Taylor maintained a 2-1 1st period lead until early in the 3rd when the Redhawks scored twice in the span of about 90 seconds to take a 3-2 lead. But Taylor shut the door from that point on, giving his team a chance to knot the score with 34 seconds left in the game to force overtime and eventually hold a 19th ranked Miami squad to a draw. Angus Crookshank (OTT, 2018 5th round pick) led UNH with a goal and an assist. It was the Wildcats fourth tie of the season, their record now at 1-6-4 (1-3-2 HEAST) on the season, and these same two teams tangle again Saturday night to complete the weekend non-conference series.
