Minnesota forward Jay Barriball will have season-ending surgery to repair a knee injury he suffered in practice on Tuesday, the school announced Thursday.
Barriball, a senior, is eligible to apply to the NCAA for a medical hardship waiver. If approved, he would be able to play another season in college.
His surgery is scheduled for Friday.
Barriball had four points through five games this season. In 124 career games for the Golden Gophers, he has registered 39 goals and 102 points.
