TBT: Nothing puzzling about Lightning goalie prospect Adam Wilcox's development

By Damian Cristodero, Tampa Bay Times

University of Minnesota goalie Adam Wilcox claims he can solve a Rubik's Cube puzzle in "about a minute."

Yeah, right, said laughing Gophers goaltenders coach Justin Johnson. "Maybe if he was doing just one side."

No, really, Wilcox said, "It's just kind of learning patterns. You have to take it step by step."

And that is exactly how Wilcox has turned himself into one of the nation's top freshman goalies and one of the Lightning's most interesting and promising prospects.

For the rest of this story, see the Tampa Bay Times.

Minnesota had leads of 3-0 and 4-1, but couldn’t make them stand up against a potent Colorado College offense led by Alexander Krushelnyski (undrafted), son of former NHLer Mike Krushelnyski. The younger Krushelnyski took over the third period, scoring twice and setting up the game-tying goal in the closing seconds with CC’s goalie pulled. The tying goal was scored when Krushelnyski make a long pass from the half-wall to a teammate standing behind the Minnesota defense on the weak side. Wilcox lunged at the one-timed shot, but couldn’t stop it. Wilcox will head into the Christmas break with 10 wins, which is outstanding – especially for a freshman. The Gophers are second in the WCHA by one point behind Denver.
