Jason Zucker, a 5-11, 180-pound freshman, is having an amazing season for the University of Denver.

He is the second-leading scorer in all games for the Pioneers who play the Gophers this weekend. In 20 conference games, he had a league-leading 17 goals and is second in points with 26 in WCHA games.

The NHL Minnesota Wild took Zucker, of Las Vegas, Nevada, in the second round of the 2010 NHL draft. He was the 59th overall pick. He had played for the U.S. national development team in Ann Arbor, Mich., the past two seasons.

Hey all,

I realize DU hockey is giving everyone plenty to be excited about, and DU hoops less so, as per usual, particularly after the disastrous road trip to Arkansas. BUT! Tonight's a big night! Sun Belt leader Florida Atlantic's in town, and it's the national mid-major Game! Of! The! Night!.

I'll bet anything that Zoooooker is the next NHL Star to come from U of D. Period. We know he's drafted and he's got the talent and skills. But his personality - the way he carries himself and addresses complete strangers off the ice, away from the rinks..... he is a gentleman in the truest sense, even at his young age. All the pieces are there with "this one". No team wants a cocky, egotistical jerk.... and JZ is about as far from that as one can be. You heard it here first.
