Guentzel, Archibald Win Stanley Cup
NASHVILLE -- Former Omaha forwards
Guentzel, a native of Woodbury, Minn., lettered at Omaha from 2013-16. He played in all 25 Stanley Cup playoff games and finished his run with 13 goals and eight assists for 21 points, which tied the NHL rookie record.
Archibald, from Brainerd, Minn., lettered at Omaha from 2011-14. He appeared in four playoff games for the Penguins.
"This is a really exciting time for our program and a special moment for Maverick fans with two alumni winning the Stanley Cup," Omaha head coach Mike Gabinet said. "It is an accomplishment few hockey players ever experience in their careers, and we're proud of the championship run Jake and Josh have had with the Penguins this year."
Pittsburgh defeated the Nashville Predators 2-0 in game six and took the series, 4-2. The Penguins are the first team to repeat as Stanley Cup Champions since the Detroit Red Wings in 1997 and 1998.
