Fasching honored by Big Ten

by Megan Ryan

Gophers men's hockey freshman forward Hudson Fasching earned the Big Ten conference's Third Star on Tuesday for his performance at the split series on the road at Notre Dame.

Fasching recorded two goals and an assist last weekend. He also tops all freshmen in the conference in points (11), goals (five) and plus/minus (+12).

This is Fasching's first award, though the Gophers have collected six weekly honors already this season, including at least one winner in all four weeks the team has competed.

Minnesota will play Minnesota State-Mankato this weekend at Mariucci Arena.
