John Mariucci. Herb Brooks. Don Lucia. These legendary names are just three of 14 dedicated and nationally recognized University of Minnesota Golden Gophers hockey coaches who have helped build up a strong Gophers hockey program over the past 86 seasons. John Mariucci even went on to coach the 1956 Winter Olympics United States Hockey team, which ultimately led to a silver medal. Today, Mariucci Arena stands on the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis campus to celebrate this Golden Gophers hockey coach legend.
It is not just the coaches who make University of Minnesota Golden Gophers hockey so successful, however. A second component are the Gophers hockey players themselves--a group of around 30 players, most of whom were born and raised in Minnesota. These Minnesota Gophers hockey players band together season after season to secure championships and title berths. In fact, over the past 8 seasons, the Minnesota Golden Gophers hockey team has either won or participated in DI NCAA championship tournaments. Over one hundred former Minnesota Golden Gophers hockey players went on to NHL play as well-- Tim Berglund, Peter Hayek, Jack McCartan, and Ken Yackel among others.
In addition to Minnesota Gophers hockey coaches and players, the final component in the University of Minnesota's rich legacy of Gopher hockey are the Gophers hockey fans! These Gophers hockey fans deck themselves in maroon and gold, cheer for the University of Minnesota mascot Goldy Gopher, and shout the Minnesota Rouser, especially when the Minnesota Golden Gophers take on arch-rivals Wisconsin Badgers and the North Dakota Fighting Sioux.
