Well it's not the NHL but it's hockey! The Buckeyes open their season against the Gophers tonight in Minnesota. This is the first half of a back-to-back against a Minnesota team that already opened against Penn State on Thursday and Friday, winning both games against the Nittany Lions.

Of particular interest to CBJ fans is Gophers Junior Defenseman Robbie Stucker, who was a 7th round pick in 2017. He put up 2-6-8 with 2 PIMs and a -2 rating in 35 games last year. He has yet to see action this year.

I don't know lines or advanced stats, but here's the roster of each team:

Let's go Bucks!
