I think he gets a little special treatment since he is from GR (Lucia's hometown). Hope this kid can figure it out before it is too late.

Tyler Hirsch is not from Grand Rapids, but yes, Don Lucia is. Tyler played his high school/prep hockey in Fairbault at Shattuck-St. Mary's School.

I hope he gets things turned around as well. A great talent on the bench.

Anyone got the inside scoop on why Hirsch was kicked off the Gophers hockey team? What a waste, and a shame, for him and the team.

probably got bad grades and skipped practice again confused.gif

At least the gophers can now move on and not have to worry about whether or not he is able to play.

The college career of mercurial Minnesota forward Tyler Hirsch came to an end Saturday as the senior was dismissed from the team.

"Tyler Hirsch's hockey career at the University of Minnesota has come to an end," Gopher head coach Don Lucia said in a statement released prior to the team's 5-2 win against Ferris State Saturday in the Dodge Holiday Classic championship game at Mariucci Arena. "This is a private and confidential matter between Tyler and the coaching staff."

After sitting out the entire 2005-06 season for personal reasons, Hirsch returned to the Gophers lineup for his senior year and was off to a great start, with four goals and 18 assists in 15 games, but his misdeeds kept him in Lucia's doghouse. Hirsch was benched for the season-opener against Maine for showing up late to a team meeting, missed two games in November for lackluster efforts in practice, and sat for the team's series against Minnesota State earlier this month because of academic issues.

Rumors of Hirsch's demise first surfaced Friday after the Gophers' 3-1 win against Alabama-Huntsville, a game in which Hirsch – who was clearly going through the motions – was benched for the third period.

Hirsch's most publicized incident occurred following a Minnesota loss to Colorado College in the 2005 WCHA Final Five when he skated from center ice at full speed into one of the nets, knocking it into the end boards. He missed the next three games, returning to the lineup for the Gophers' loss to North Dakota in the Frozen Four in Columbus

Inside scoop: Bad grades, bad attitude, poor work ethic. You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink!

I hope the Gophers win the national title this year even more now. Someday when he is all grown up (which should have been 4 years ago), he will look back at how stupid he was and how much of a mistake he made. It will hit him after he says for the 10,000th time, “would you like fries with that?” and “would you like to super-size that for only $.50 more?”

Just like Louie Anderson in Coming to America: “Now I’m washing lettuce… But soon I’ll be on fries… and that’s when the big bucks begin.”

Good luck to ya Tyler!

The kid has some deep emotional issues. I don't know if he's bi-polar or simply depressed but he is a great talent. I hope it works out for Tyler. I think the coaching staff went as far as they could with him.

I was thinking the same thing about the mental issue. Bad grades are a nice cover up though. smirk.gif A little mixed up in the head and the incident where he pretended he was a puck proves that. Kinda weird....

I believe this to be a true statement and it is unfortunate for him and his family... not to mention his teammates. frown.gif
