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.
