Eric Schierhorn of Anchorage collected his 58th career win between the pipes for the University of Minnesota.

Making his first start since Dec. 29, the senior goaltender turned aside 21 shots in a 4-3 win over No. 2-ranked Ohio State in a Big Ten game in Columbus, Ohio.

Schierhorn improved to 8-3 all-time against Ohio State

His 58 career wins rank the Alaskan No. 5 on the Golden Gophers all-time list for goalies, needing just two more victories to tie Jeff Stolp for the No. 4 spot. The record is 84.

Schierhorn also ranks third in games played (110) and second in shutouts (12).

His 2.57 goals-against average is the best of his four years in net.
