While there have been highs and lows this year, it’s time to recognize the positive contributions made by several members of Team 95 in Husky History. So, by the power vested in me (by me) as the co-winner of the #1 MTU Fan In Texas for 2017-2018 season (I’m tied with Mrs. Dog), here are my selections for the best of Them Dogs for the past campaign—the First Annual Old Dog Awards.
Michigan Tech came out strong in the first period, flying around the ice and putting pressure on the Dutchmen right from the opening faceoff. It took under four minutes for the Huskies to get on the board as Mitch Meek scored his first collegiate goal by skating up the boards and putting a shot on...
The Huskies met the end of their season Saturday against the #1 overall seed Denver Pioneers. The Pioneers scored four unanswered first period goals leaving the Huskies with an unenviable challenge. The Pioneers added another goal early in the second to seemingly seal Tech's fate. Whether the Huskies had nerves coming into the NCAA tourney, or were simply outplayed by the top seed of the tourney, MTU felt the pressure of the NCAA tourney right from the start of the game.
It took nearly two extra periods for the Michigan Tech Huskies to battle through the BGSU Falcons Saturday night at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena, but a long breakout pass by Matt Roy (Jr., D) to his defensive partner Shane Hanna (Sr., D) ended in a 3-2 victory for the Huskies.
MTU earned three WCHA conference points on the weekend, and with the Minnesota State loss on Friday, are now the number two seed in the WCHA playoffs. This means that Tech owns a guaranteed home ice advantages in the first and semifinal rounds. The Huskies will host the Lake Superior State Lakers next weekend.
