Kindersley's social media account gave one last call out to the former Klippers' goalie as he approaches the NCAA Frozen Four; and doesn't the graphic say it all?

Justen Close's play is a big factor, and though it probably hasn't been the main reason for Minnesota's electric run to end the season, it is certainly tough for a team's confidence to show through without a hot goalie behind them.

Confident hockey is exactly what the Golden Gophers are playing, evidenced by a 4-3 OT win against UMass prior to the shutout win versus Western Michigan to get them into the semi-final round.

The Golden Gophers are back in the Frozen Four, and West Central Online will be sure to follow Close and the University of Minnesota on their run to becoming NCAA champions this season.
