That's awesome.  Go Blue!  For some reason I feel like Michigan will bring its A game this weekend.  Raising at least one banner would be nice.

is both player of the year and goaltender of the year?  That's not something you see every day.  I thought Dzingel was going to win it pretty handily, though I guess no forward really stood out as particularly exemplary points-wise and Wilcox is being mentioned for Hobey.

It's quite uncommon for somebody to leave after their Freshman year.  The only 3 I can recall having excellent Freshman years at Michigan and then leaving before their Sophomore year are Bruno Baseotto, Max Pacioretty and Jacob Trouba.

I don't think Compher would gain much in terms of speeding up his development by leaving after this year.  Why not play for Michigan for most of 2014/15 rather than the Rochester Americans?  It might make sense for him to go after next year, though.
