MINNEAPOLIS - After missing most of last season because of an injury, University of Minnesota sophomore forward Zach Budish is ready to step on the national stage at the Frozen Four in Tampa, Fla.
Budish, an Edina native, is sixth on the Gophers with 35 points (12 G, 32 A) and also ranks among team leaders in plus-minus rating (+23).
Before heading south to the Frozen Four, Budish talked to KARE 11's Dave Schwartz.
The Gophers face Boston College Thursday at 7 p.m. at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in south Florida.
Randy Shaver will have live reports on KARE 11 News from the Frozen Four starting Tuesday night.
