Minnesota is home to hosts of prodigious hockey families. Surnames known from Austin to Warroad stretch across the history of the high school, collegiate and professional ranks in the state of hockey. The Reilly family, well into its second generation of producing talented Gophers, has a claim to be remembered among those names. Senior forward Caitlin Reilly is the first Reilly to play on the Gopher women's team; however, she's actually the fifth Reilly to wear the Maroon and Gold. Her father, Mike, played for the Gophers and her three older brothers – Ryan, Connor and Mike – played for the men’s program as well.
