University of Minnesota goaltender Justen Close has been named a top-10 finalist for the Mike Richter Award.

The honor goes annually to the top goaltender in college hockey. It’s Close’s second straight year being named a semifinalist. He’s been on the award’s watch list three straight years. Close is 17-7-5 in net for the Gophers this season as he’s faced the fifth-toughest schedule in the country. He has a 2.25 goals against average, and a .926t save percentage. They rank 10th and sixth in the nation perspectively.


Go Gophers!!
