The Michigan Tech Huskies' goaltending situation is in flux with the departure of the short-lived yet beloved Angus Redmond. With one man returning and two new faces, plenty could happen between the pipes as MTU tries to fill the shoes of ‘Beef.’
Just as Tech Hockey Guide has undertaken a new look for the 2017-18, the Huskies hockey team has done the same. Or, should we say, an old look? The Huskies dug 85 years into their past to find inspiration for this year’s black jerseys. But before we take a closer look at this new look...
Joe Shawhan was announced as Michigan Tech's newest head coach just over 100 days ago. He's already received the commitment of Michigan's 2017 Mr. Hockey, a 50-point scorer for a pretty good Minnesota High School and a veteran goaltender that could start for the Huskies against Wisconsin in less than two weeks. Shawhan and his staff have hit the ground running, improving the team for this season and likely the future.
The Michigan Tech Huskies enter the 2018-2019 season with their hopes resting on the group of forwards that stays mostly intact from last season. Coming off a national tournament appearance despite severe scoring issues for most of the season, they need the entire offense to elevate their game. More responsibility will be on the forwards now that elite goaltender Angus Redmond and stud defensemen like Shane Hanna, Cliff Watson and Matt Roy have departed. From the old guard to a few new guys, let’s look at MTU’s unit up front.
