The Lightning acquired goaltender Adam Wilcox in the sixth round, 178th overall, at the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
He currently stars for the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers of the NCAA Big Ten Conference. It is his third season with the Golden Gophers, and the team’s second season in the Big Ten Conference after moving from the Western Collegiate Hockey Association prior to the start of the 2013-14 season.
In his first two seasons, Wilcox has skated in 77 games, recording 51 wins and seven shutouts. In both seasons, he has recorded a goals-against average under two: a 1.88 his rookie year and a 1.97 last year.
Wilcox recently made headlines for his unreal stick save against Bemidji State during the Golden Gophers opening weekend.
Wilcox has started all six games so far this season, going 5-1 and also recording one shutout. He currently possesses a 2.49 GAA along with a .902 save percentage.
As the Golden Gophers look to continue their winning ways after their fast start, expect Wilcox to lead the way. After starting the season strong, he looks to keep building and improving on a strong start.
