In any era of Gopher men’s hockey, accomplishing something no one else has in more than a decade is extraordinary. Last season, Tyler Sheehy did that by recording 53 points, the most by a Gopher in 11 years. The list of Minnesota natives to shine in the Block M sweater is expansive and always-growing. Sheehy is the latest addition to that register. Originally from Burnsville, Minn., just a short drive south of campus, Sheehy racked up a series of accolades recognizing his extraordinary sophomore season, including First Team All-America, Big Ten Player of the Year, and being named a Hobey Baker Award finalist. As a junior, he'll join another extraordinary list, Minnesotans to wear the "C" as the team's captain.
