Gophers lose Stoa for season

Associated Press

MINNEAPOLIS — The Gophers hockey team started the season with two victories — and one big loss.

Junior Ryan Stoa, the left wing on Minnesota’s top line, will miss the rest of the season with a knee injury he suffered in the first period of Saturday’s win over Michigan, the school confirmed Monday. He’ll need surgery.

Stoa scored a goal in Friday’s comeback victory over RPI. The native of Bloomington had 12 goals and 12 assists last season for the Gophers.

"I’m really disappointed for Ryan," coach Don Lucia said in a statement released by the school. "We’re going to miss him as a leader and a person this upcoming season."
