UNO freshman Guentzel off to a fast start
UNO freshman Jake Guentzel, No. 20, skates by Bentley's Matt Blomquist, right, to go after the puck during their game last weekend. Guentzel had a goal and an assist in the two-game series with Bentley, the first games of his college career. His power play goal Saturday put the Mavs ahead for good in a 4-2 win.

Jake Guentzel looks like one of those kids who might come along with hockey teams — maybe a coach's son or the little brother of one of the players — but emerge as a star in the game itself.
He's listed at 5-foot-10 and said he came up just a few pounds short of his goal of 170 pounds. His dad, who actually is a coach — Mike Guentzel, the associate head coach at Minnesota — has said his son, who just turned 19, probably looks closer to 12.
