ST. PAUL-- Minnesota forward Justin Kloos was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2014 West Regional. Kloos, a freshman from Lakeville, MN, had 3 points in the two games. That includes a pair of goals in Saturday night 's 4-0 win against St. Cloud State that has the Gophers advancing to its second Frozen Four in 3 years.

Kloos is joined by 4 teammates on the all-tournament squad in linemate Nate Condon, defensemen Brady Skjei and Mike Reilly, and goaltender Adam Wilcox, who earned his 7th career shutout with 24 saves Saturday. Each played major roles in Minnesota's wins over Robert Morris and the Huskies.
