“The player development is the main thing I like (about Michigan),” Williams said. “You can see that they develop their players. They get them in the gym and they work them hard. And their hard work pays off.”
This news is a couple days old but I had not seen it posted on the site yet. NMUs leading point getter, Senior Matt Thurber (6 goals, 26 assists), is out with a broken leg and will not play this weekend. I feel bad for him as his collegiate career is now over. This article plays it off like they should not be too impacted, but when a team loses such a key set up guy and veteran that is rarely a benefit. Hopefully Michigan can get off to a good start to the final CCHA playoff with a sweep on their way to making a run to extend the NCAA streak!
