Chris McAlpine was one of the great Minnesota Golden Gophers of the early '90s, and one of my personal favorites. One year after graduating from the U of M as an All-WCHA defender, he was hoisting the Stanley Cup with the New Jersey Devils. He ended up as an NHL journeyman, playing in 289 games for six different teams over eight seasons, and he remains one of my favorite Gophers.
