WCHA Final Five: Minnesota vs. Colorado College line combinations

University of Minnesota forward Sam Warning - Minnesota Athletics

Sam Warning is back in the lineup for Minnesota against the Tigers after missing 2 games with a lower body injury.

The biggest news Friday night for both teams is that Sam Warning will be in the lineup for Minnesota. The sophomore forward missed both of last weekend's games against Bemidji State with a lower body injury and was initially listed as "week to week" by Gopher head coach Don Lucia. However, he's in the lineup in his usual spot - second line left winger with Zach Budish (Nashville Predators) and Erik Haula (Minnesota Wild).

Brady Skjei (New York Rangers) is the odd Gopher defenseman out.

Adam Wilcox gets the nod in net for Minnesota while Joe Howe is in goal for the Tigers.
