Rem Pitlick

5'10 Gopher freshman forward from Plymouth, MN.  Pitlick played his high school hockey at Shattuck-St. Mary's.

(University Park, PA)  --  The Minnesota men's hockey team never held the lead until Rem Pitlick scored the game-winner in overtime at Penn State Saturday, 4-3.  That completes the sweep for the Gophers and keeps them in first place in the Big Ten Conference standings.  Minnesota trailed 3-1 in the third period, cut the lead to one, then forced the overtime when Justin Kloos scored with less than four seconds remaining.  Jake Bischoff and Tyler Sheehy also had goals for the Minnesota.  The Gophers host second-place Wisconsin next weekend in a two-game series at Mariucci Arena.
