Gothberg returns to practice

UND sophomore goalie Zane Gothberg is back at practice taking reps.

What does that mean for this weekend? We don’t know at this point. His status is still up in the air. But it does mean that Gothberg is headed in the right direction and it probably won’t be too much longer until he’s ready to go back in.

Senior Clarke Saunders had mixed performances last weekend during a split with Nebraska Omaha. If Gothberg can’t go this weekend, expect to see Saunders again.

For the season, Gothberg is 10-5-3 with a 2.26 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage. Saunders is 4-4-0 with a 3.36 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage.

  1. Hope to see Zane sooner than later. Nothing against Clarke, but Zane was playing very good hockey prior to his injury. Go SIOUX!

  2. Clarke seems to do well on Fridays, but awful on saturday. Hope Zane can get back in there, definitely more consistent each weekend.

    • The whole team played poorly much of Saturday so it wasn’t all Saunders fault. This about this: If the Friday’s and Saturdays performances were turned around (goat (in your words) Friday then #2 star Saturday) we’d be talking completely different going into this weekends games. Saunders wins two this weekend (lets throw a shutout in there) and we’re back to questioning if Gothberg’s getting back in net anytime soon. Right?

  3. Gothberg has been the more consistent goalie this season, while both goalies have a knack for allowing a weak goal nearly every game. If the power play doesn’t start finishing it’ll be a short post season run anyway.

  4. Brad: Just wondering if there’s any chance we might see Hrynkiw get some ice time? I don’t believe he’s a “Tate Maris” type backup (no realistic chance of playing) so I’d expect he will get his chances sometime. But if he doesn’t play this year, would the team consider red-shirting him? I know that’s not the norm in college hockey, but maybe goalie situations are treated a little differently. Thoughts?
