Minnesota Golden Gophers #1 Seed
The Buffalo Sabres will have two prospects playing for the number-one seeded Minnesota Golden Gophers, including 2014 Frank Pond rookie of year Hudson Fasching. The Sabres acquired Fasching through a deadline deal with the Los Angeles Kings. The second Sabres prospect joining Fasching will be right winger Christian Isackson.
Fasching sits second in team scoring with 12 goals as he looks to power the Gophers through home ice advantage to the NCAA championship
Both Sabres prospects have played key roles for the Gold Gophers this season on route to earning the top seed on the West Side. The Golden Gophers will kick off their tournament on Saturday against unseeded Robert Morris.
