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.
Sophomore defenseman Andy Ryan was thrown into action this season. After playing in only six games his freshman year, Ryan has quickly become a staple in the Irish defense. With each game, Ryan is tallying more blocks, assists, and goals on his stat sheet. Here’s the Two-Minute Power Play with Andy Ryan…
