One of the all-time Minnesota North Star crowd favorites, Goldsworthy joined the team as an expansion draft choice. He had his best offensive season in 1974, setting career highs with 48 goals and 74 points. He died in 1996 of complications from AIDS. Brooks, whose greatest fame was six years ahead of him, had just coached the Gophers to the first of three NCAA hockey championships during the seven years he coached the team before resigning to coach the 1980 U.S. Olympic team.
