J ROBINSONGame 353 | November 24, 1987 | J Robinson, Doug Woog
A graduate of Oklahoma State, Robinson was hired to replace legendary Gopher wrestling coach Wally Johnson for the 1986-'87 season. In just his third season he led the Gophers to a second-place finish in the Big Ten championships, their best finish in seven years. In Woog's third season the team returned to the Frozen Four where they lost to St. Lawrence and Maine. Robb Stauber was outstanding in the nets, winning the 1988 Hobey Baker Award. Jay Cates, Paul Broten, Randy Skarda, Peter Hankinson and Todd Richards were the team's leading scorers.
