Michigan is ranked #2, behind only Minnesota. Wisconsin is the only other ranked B1G team.
One hour until puck drop, let's get some hockey conversation going to take our minds off the football game. Michigan goes for the sweep tonight against Michigan Tech, with a few changes to the lineup.
In time of dearth and heartbreak
Beyond hockey's most desp'rate hour...
A boy became a man, one of our own
Who knew that 'round him, a program would wake?
A simple man, they tasked to stop
Yet they found emerged a hero
Not the hero we deserve, but the hero we need right now
A silent guardian,
A watchful protector
... A Captain ...
I believe in Andrew Copp.
Changing conferences means adjusting to new things. One of these is weekly awards.
Instead of the player of the week, rookie of the week etc. the CCHA had, the B1G has chose to have one set of awards.
The 3 Stars of the Week.
Freshman goalie Zach Nagelvoort has been named the Third Star for his great performance this weekend. 52 saves and .945 save percentage.
Michigan has had at least one player in every edition of the B1G Three Stars so far. Andrew Copp (10/15) and freshman Tyler Motte (10/22) were the previous two.
We're getting close to puck drop, Michigan closes out the weekend with UMass-Lowell
