Gustavus men clinch share of MIAC title

Forward David Martinson continued his stellar senior season on Friday night, scoring two goals and assisting on two others in the Gustavus men's hockey team's 5-1 victory over St. Mary's. The win gave the Gusties at least a share of the MIAC regular-season championship, their first since 1993.

After Hamline tied Concordia, the Gusties have a two-point lead over the Pipers going into tonight's season finale. If the Gusties defeat the Cardinals in Winona, they will win the conference outright as well as the No. 1 seed in the MIAC playoffs. Regardless, Gustavus will open the playoffs with a semifinal game next Saturday at the Don Roberts Ice Rink.

Martinson (pictured) now has 27 goals and 45 points, tops in the MIAC.
