Gassett had three assists last week in the Challenge Cup semi-finals. He ranks 6th in the St. Louis area in scoring with 22 goals and has a combined 47 points on the season.

“You know I came into a rebuilding situation, but that gave me the opportunity to play right away,” Gassett said. “It takes a lot of discipline and a lot of thinking. Everyone says hockey is 90 percent mental and 10 percent physical, which I like.”

The SLUH junior Billikens suffered a loss in the finals to the CBC Cadets and finished the season 24-4.
