North Dakota’s Rodwell out for season with shoulder injury

North Dakota sophomore forward Derek Rodwell will miss the remainder of the 2011-12 season with a shoulder injury, the school announced Thursday.

Rodwell injured his left shoulder in UND’s Dec. 30 game against Harvard and will have season-ending surgery later this month.

A fifth-round draft pick of New Jersey in 2009, Rodwell had one goal and one assist in 19 games this season. As a freshman last season, he tallied five goals and four assists in 39 games.

    In a season where the Sioux need everyone on the roster, he will be missed.  One of the hardest workers on the team.  So solid in his own zone and a great backchecker.  Always seemed on the verge of breaking through offensively as well.  Tough break.
