COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (UND) – Following a weekend sweep over Miami, a pair of North Dakota players were honored by the National Collegiate Hockey Conference on Monday afternoon, as announced by the league office. Fifth year goaltender Drew DeRidder and junior forward Riese Gaber were each selected as NCHC Goaltender of the Week and NCHC Forward of the Week, respectively, after helping the Fighting Hawks capture all six points over Miami in convincing fashion.
For the second time in six weeks, DeRidder earned the league’s top goaltender crown for the week following a pair of sparkling performances on the road at Miami. The Fenton, Mich., native stopped 50 of the 51 shots fired his way to close the series with a 2-0-0 record, 0.50 GAA and a .980 save percentage. Following a 27-save night in Friday’s 4-1 opening win, DeRidder collected his fourth shutout of the season with 23 stops in the 8-0 onslaught in the finale. The four shutouts on the year for DeRidder tie him with Adam Scheel for the most in a single season by a UND goaltender since 2016-17. The netminder has settled into the pipes for North Dakota as the season wears on, posting a 4-1-1 record with a 1.63 GAA, .938 save percentage and two shutouts over his last seven starts.
Gaber powered North Dakota to a sweep at Miami with a five-point weekend. In Friday’s opener, the junior helped jumpstart UND’s offense with the primary assist on the game’s opening goal. It came on a power play tally only 4:18 into the contest as the Fighting Hawks went on to win, 4-1. The next night, Gaber erupted for a career-high four points, including his first collegiate hat trick. Gaber opened the scoring with a power play goal midway through the first, which served as the game-winning goal. He then scored again midway through the second stanza to make it 3-0 and completed North Dakota’s first hat trick since Nov. 2, 2018 with another power play tally in the final minute of the game, which capped an 8-0 thumping. Gaber also assisted on UND’s fourth goal, with three of his four points Saturday on the man advantage. Gaber finished the weekend with three goals, two assists and a NCHC-best 13 shots on goal, including a career-high 12 in Saturday’s win. Gaber was also +1 in the sweep. He now has 16 career points (10g, 6a) in nine career games against Miami. On the season, Gaber leads the Fighting Hawks and is tied for fourth in the NCHC with 16 goals, while his 28 points are second on the team and seventh in the NCHC.

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Tom Brady, who won a record seven Super Bowls for New England and Tampa, has announced his retirement. Brady — the most successful quarterback in NFL history, and one of the greatest athletes in team sports — posted the announcement on social media Wednesday morning, a brief video lasting just under one minute. “Good morning guys. I’ll get to the point right away,” Brady says as the message begins. “I’m retiring. For good.”
He briefly retired after the 2021 season, but wound up coming back for one more year with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He retires at age 45, the owner of numerous passing records in an unprecedented 23-year career. A year ago when he retired, it was in the form of a long Instagram post. But about six weeks later, he decided to come back for one more run. The Buccaneers — with whom he won a Super Bowl two seasons ago — made the playoffs again this season, losing in their playoff opener. And at the time, it begged the question about whether Brady would play again. Only a couple weeks later, he has given the answer. “I know the process was a pretty big deal last time, so when I woke up this morning, I figured I’d just press record and let you guys know first,” Brady says in the video. “I won’t be long-winded. You only get one super emotional retirement essay and I used mine up last year. “I really thank you guys so much, to every single one of you for supporting me. My family, my friends, teammates, my competitors. I could go on forever. There’s too many. Thank you guys for allowing me to live my absolute dream. I wouldn’t change a thing. Love you all.”
Brady is the NFL’s career leader in yards passing (89,214) and touchdowns (649). He’s the only player to win more than five Super Bowls and has been MVP of the game five times. Famously underrated coming into the NFL — he was picked 199th in the 2000 draft by the Patriots, behind six other quarterbacks, three kickers and a punter — Brady certainly wasn’t expected to become synonymous with greatness. He played in one game as a rookie, completing one of three passes for six yards. The next year, it all changed. Brady took over as the Patriots’ starter, the team beat the St. Louis Rams in the Super Bowl that capped the 2001 season, and he and New England coach Bill Belichick were well on their way to becoming the most successful coach-QB duo in football history. More Super Bowl wins came after the 2003 and 2004 seasons. The Patriots returned to football’s mountaintop for a fourth time in Brady’s era a decade later to cap the 2014 season, the start of three more titles in a span of five years. In 2020, he joined the Buccaneers and won his seventh Super Bowl. He spent his last three years with Tampa Bay, getting them to the playoffs in each of those seasons.
“I think I’ve been on the record dozens of times saying there’s no quarterback I’d rather have than Tom Brady, and I still feel that way,” Belichick said in 2021 — shortly before Tampa Bay, with Brady, came to New England and beat the Patriots in a game dubbed “The Return.” “I was very lucky to have Tom as the quarterback, to coach him, and he was as good as any coach could ever ask for.”
Brady has won three NFL MVP awards, been a first-team All-Pro three times and selected to the Pro Bowl 15 times. Brady and supermodel Gisele Bündchen finalized their divorce this past fall, during the Bucs’ season. It ended a 13-year marriage between two superstars who respectively reached the pinnacles of football and fashion. It was announced last year that when Brady retires from playing, he would join Fox Sports as a television analyst in a 10-year, $375 million deal.
