Men’s Hockey Erupts for 6-0 Win at St. Olaf Posted on January 10th, 2020 by


NORTHFIELD, Minn. – After a month-long break, the Gustavus men’s hockey team Friday night defeated St. Olaf 6-0 to improve to 6-6 overall and 3-2 in the MIAC, while the Oles dropped to 2-12 overall and 1-6 in the league.

Really good effort from all of our guys,” Head Coach Brett Petersen said. “It was evident early on that we haven’t played a game in a month but I thought we got stronger as the game went along.”

The first period went scoreless before the Gusties erupted for three goals in the second frame. Jared Bromberg (Sr., Rochester) scored his second goal of the season 9:48 into the period, assisted by Brenden Payne (So., Plainfield, Ill.). Three minutes later, the Gusties took advantage of a delayed penalty as Tyler Rock (Jr., Savage) tallied an extra attacker goal, his third score of the season, with the help of Caleb Anderson (Jr., Sioux Falls, S.D.) and Tyler Ebner (So., La Crosse, Wis.). And with 5:37 on the clock, Kegan Couture (Sr., Pequot Lakes) scored a power play goal, his first of the season, assisted by Ebner and Rock.

The Gusties continued to add to their lead in the third as Anderson scored his first of two goals in the game 8:49 into the period. Connor Clemons (So., Savage) and Benji Mickel (Fy., Durango, Colo.) were credited with the assists. Anderson then posted his sixth goal of the season on a power play with 5:31 remaining in regulation, assisted by Mason Etter (Jr., Grafton, Wis.) and Clemons. And with 4:55 left in the game, Dan Sandvig (So., Savage) capped the scoring barrage with his second goal of the season, helped by Dylan Gast (So., Dellwood) and Axel Hallin (Sr., Hovas, Sweden).

Robbie Goor (Jr., Anoka) recorded his second shutout of the season, making 28 saves in goal, dropping his goals against average to 1.99 and increasing his save percentage to .934.

The Gusties outshot the Oles 33-28 and killed all four Ole power plays, while going 2-2 on the man advantage.

The Gusties and Oles wrap up the series at 7:05 p.m. tomorrow at Don Robert Ice Rink.
