(Note that this is SPENCER Hyman, brother of alternate captain Zach Hyman.)
A few bits of information via the Yost Post. Mike Szuma and Spencer Hyman will not be with the team this fall:
Mike Szuma... Has met with Coach Berenson and has decided to not return to the program this year. Szuma will stay enrolled at Michigan and work on completing his studies.
All credit due to Jeff Weinstein, Michigan's hockey SID, for the info that Spencer will be playing at the University of Toronto this season.
Solid landing spot for Spencer in my opinion. Both were well buried on the defensive line chart so this isn't terribly surprising. Good luck to them both.
Additionally, someone met Brian Wiseman this summer and he had this to say on B1G expansion:
I was lucky enough to meet and have dinner with Brian Wiseman, Beilein, Hoke, and Brandon in June. A great highlight for my son and I was all the time Brian spent with us. We talked B1G hockey expansion. He stated that Northwestern and Nebraska have both inquired about membership. He also believes Illinois will make the move.
Very surprising to me that Northwestern inquired. Given that 'inquired' could mean they were curious without any serious intent to join. They would've been about at the bottom of my list of Big Ten teams likely to pick up DI hockey. Illinois and Nebraska are not surprising to me at all. I expect them to be the next two teams on board.
