June 2022 – Faber has been dealt to the Minnesota Wild along with the 19th overall selection in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Kevin Fiala. He now battles Calen Addison on the depth chart on the right side. Dave Hall


June 2022 – Faber’s sophomore season ended in heartbreaking fashion when his University of Minnesota Gophers fell to Minnesota State University 5-1 in the national semi-finals. Faber showed steady growth at both ends of the ice, polishing his already strong transition game while becoming more of a threat in the offensive zone. He put up 14 points across 32 games, around the same pace he had in previous years. The offence will continue to be steady for Faber, as he is known for his rounded game and his ability to force opposing players to the outside, preventing high danger scoring opportunities. He will return to the Gophers in the fall where he is expected to continue developing into an effective shutdown defenseman with top-four potential at the NHL level. Sean Crocker

October 2020 – Brock Faber scored 12 points in 46 games as part of the United States Development Program U18 team. While those numbers don’t jump off the page it is his play defensively that makes him stand out. His attention to detail and smart decision-making skills make him excel defensively. He can use his anticipation and good stick to defend and close down opponents. He is not a slouch offensively and it is a part of his game that is continuing to develop but his defensive skillset gives him great potential to be an NHL player. He will look to take his game to the next level with one of the best school programs in the NCAA at the University of Minnesota. Julian Mongillo


October 2020 – Brock Faber was selected 45th overall by the Los Angeles Kings. Tony Ferrari 


September 2020 – One of the youngest players in the 2020 draft is also one of the very best skaters. The right-shot defender owns a near-flawless stride that allows him to transition the puck quickly and effectively with his feet. He has a good mind for straightforward offense but has yet to unlock the creativity and risk-taking needed to project gaudy point totals in the future. He was one of the very at pass conversions this past season and is off to a strong program at the University of Minnesota. A very safe floor, but perhaps a more limited ceiling than other players who will be drafted around him. Cam Robinson
