Anna Gonzalez, the official 2013-14 hockey beat writer for the Irish UNDerground blog, is currently a sophomore at the University of Notre Dame. Over the course of the year Anna will bring you insight from within the student section, interviews with Fighting Irish players and stories from inside the team circle. You can follow Anna (and the rest of the Notre Dame student beat writing staff) on twitter at @JrNDBloggers.
Junior defenseman Eric Johnson is continuing a bit of a legacy with Notre Dame hockey, but he’s making a name for himself as well. His older brother, Mike, played between the pipes for the Irish from 2009-13. Johnson is currently out on with an upper-body injury, but he won’t let it keep him out for long. While we’re waiting on his return, here’s the Two-Minute Power Play with Eric Johnson.
