Freshman goaltender Strauss Mann has relieved Hayden Lavigne on two straight Saturdays.

since the beginning of January, Lavigne has been the go-to man in goal, starting all but a mid-week matchup against Merrimack. Against the Warriors, Mann got the start, largely to allow Lavigne to rest as the week was bookended by three important Big Ten games.

However, in the Wolverines’ last two series, Lavigne hasn’t finished the second game of either weekend.

Junior defensemen Griffin Luce and Luke Martin have helped anchor a defense and penalty-kill unit that has otherwise been inconsistent this season.

To say the Michigan hockey team’s defense has been inconsistent this season is an understatement. The Wolverines have given up the fourth-most goals in the Big Ten this season with 77 goals against — 24 more than No. 4 Ohio State, which has allowed the fewest goals in the conference.

But amid all that inconsistency, junior defensemen Luke Martin and Griffin Luce have backstopped an up-and-down group of blueliners.

Lavigne sprawled out to make the save as Limoges wound his way to the front of the crease, waiting to shoot the puck until Lavigne was flat on the ice. One quick flip of his stick later and Penn State led 5-1.

In part thanks to Hopgood’s routine, the Wolverines went on to place second out of the six teams at the Windy City Invitational with a score of 402.00.
