Typically thought of for football instead of hockey, Ann Arbor boasts the home of the US U-18 development team and the historic Yost arena. With so many Tech students coming from, and moving back to, the Ann Arbor area, there should be a good scene for the games next weekend. That's not even counting the fact that the Wolverines are also hosting the Fighting Illini for Homecoming on Saturday.
Following the 0-4 start to the season,the Huskies returned to form last weekend. Friday night saw the offense roll, with five unanswered goals to start play. Saturday saw a bit more of a defensive battle, going to 2OT for the Huskies, and the greater WCHA's, first taste of the new 3-on-3 OT rules.
It's October, which means it's the beginning of the college hockey season. Michigan Tech loaded up Husky One this morning to start their trip to Minnesota to take on the University of Minnesota - Duluth Bulldogs.
The 2016-17 WCHA season is right around the corner and with today's WCHA Media Conference Call comes the announcement of the preseason polls. Michigan Tech was picked to finish second by both the Media and Coaches receiving first place votes in both polls.
