The Cats have agreed to an entry-level contract with forward Nick Bjugstad, the 19th overall selection of 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
The 6'6", 220 lbs junior was the 15th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft and scored 36 points (21G-16A) in 40 games this season. He is the third Gopher to sign a pro contract in 2 days.
Sophomore defenseman Ben Marshall beat BSU goalie Andrew Walsh with just 52.7 seconds remaining to give the Gophers their first and only lead Saturday. With the sweep of Bemidji State, Minnesota advances to the Final Five in St. Paul.
The junior scored two goals for the second straight time in Bemidji, including the game-winner with 5:06 remaining while Justin Holl tied the score with a spinning backhanded goal. Cory Ward scored twice for the Beavers in defeat.
Goals by Erik Haula and Nate Schmidt 58 seconds apart in the 3rd period proved to be the difference as the top-ranked Gophers snapped St. Cloud State's nine-game WCHA unbeaten streak. Ryan Faragher made 38 saves in defeat for the Huskies.
