Golden Nugz - 12.28.2010

LvrrnbbgcnblveyI hope everyone had a great Christmas and we'll return to our regularly scheduled programming today. I'll start off with a few late morning Nugz and in a couple hours I'll post my Big Ten Preview and then we get the tip off the Big Ten season with a trip to Madison tonight.

First a hockey nugget.

Gopher freshman, Nick Bjugstad is on the USA World Juniors roster and has been having a successful campaign. In the US's first game against Finland Bjugstad scored the game winning goal in overtime.

"This is the biggest goal I have scored so far in my career," Bjugstad told after the game. "Definitely a big goal, for me and the team."

Congrats to the young man who has 2 goals and 2 assists for the Gophers this year. Game 2 is tonight against Slovakia.
