Kyle Connor's standout freshman season should earn Hobey Baker honors, writes Jason Rubinstein.

As just a freshman, Connor has totaled 61 points and 30 goals, including four this weekend, to lead the nation.

Boo Nieves, along with fellow seniors Justin Selman and Steve Racine, has helped lead Michigan back to the NCAA Tournament.

Boo Nieves, Justin Selman and Steve Racine began their careers on a team that ended the streak no one wanted to end, and they’ll go out ending the dubious streak that followed.

Regardless of the rumors, the Wolverines made one thing certain: If this was their coach’s last game on home ice, he was going out in a fashion emblematic of his entire career.

Cooper Marody missed a month with mononucleosis, but he, Tony Calderone and Brendan Warren are back together on the same line.

Finally healthy again, Cooper Marody, Tony Calderone and Brendan Warren rejoined the same line and excelled against Ohio State.

Tony Calderone once played on a travel hockey team with five other current Michigan players.

Calderone’s 96 shots on the season slot him in third on the team, behind junior forward Tyler Motte and freshman forward Kyle Connor, respectively.

The Michigan hockey team was upset twice by Ohio State over the weekend, including a 6-5 loss in overtime on Sunday.

The weekend against Ohio State brought a serious concern to the forefront. The Wolverines don’t have a reliable identity yet, and finding it in the middle of a postseason run might not be good enough.

After giving up three unanswered goals in the first 20 minutes, Racine’s second period was one of his worst stretches on the year.
