College Hockey:
Minnesota’s Briggs Out Indefinitely

— Minnesota goaltender Kellen Briggs is out indefinitely with an unspecified hand injury, the school said today.

Briggs, a sophomore, has started 30 games this season, posting a 19-10-0 record with a 2.46 goals-against average and .913 save percentage. Briggs is 26-11-0 in his last 37 starts, dating to last season. In the WCHA, he is ranked fifth in GAA and save percentage, and sixth in winning percentage (.655).

Senior netminder Justin Johnson is expected to start for the 12th-ranked Golden Gophers (20-12-1, 13-10-1 WCHA) this weekend in the home-and-home series against St. Cloud State. Freshman Brent Solei will likely serve as Johnson’s backup.
