Gophers Hockey: Jake Parenteau leaves game with injury

The senior defenseman had to be helped off the Munn Arena ice

Minnesota senior defenseman Jake Parenteau had to be helped off the ice 5:12 into Friday's game against Michigan State.

Parenteau, who has one assist in 12 games entering this weekend, was visibly in pain after checking a Spartan player behind the Gophers net. He put no weight on his right leg and went straight to the locker room.

It's not the first time Parenteau has left a game this season. He also left the October 25th game against Boston College after a first period collision. While Parenteau missed the finale of that series, he returned for the Notre Dame series.

Video of the injury is above although hopefully it is not serious.

Minnesota, currently playing with five defensemen, leads 1-0 after one period. Taylor Cammarata has the lone goal for the Gophers.

SB Nation College Hockey will have more on this if any further news is made available.

UPDATE (6:55 p.m. CT): Minnesota now states that Parenteau will not return Friday.
