Justin Selman and the Michigan hockey team have found ways to combat the boredom of a week off.

Michigan hockey coach Red Berenson has taken the opportunity this off-week to hammer home a few messages he wouldn’t ordinarily have time to focus on. Since playing Robert Morris on Halloween, there have been goalie battles, mini-games, obstacle courses, endless conditioning drills and even a history lesson or two.

Zach Nagelvoort started both games in goal against Robert Morris but struggled in the second before Steve Racine replaced him.

The goaltending problem has carried over from the 2014 campaign, and it appears there is still no easy solution.

Michael Downing is among the returning players on Michigan's blue line.

The Wolverines are convinced the unit could be better than just good. It could be great.

Cooper Marody has enjoyed a hot start to his freshman season.

Now a freshman forward for the Michigan hockey team, Marody has played every game for the Wolverines, tallying three goals and four assists. His early-season performance has catapulted him to first on the team in scoring, along with fellow freshman forward Kyle Connor.

Boo Nieves is back on the ice after missing two games with a concussion he sustained Oct. 24.

Heading into the final home game of the New York road trip, Nieves was off to one of the hottest starts of his four-year career at Michigan.

Justin Selman said Michigan needs to play with more bounce in its step than it did Saturday.

The Michigan hockey team split a pair of home games this weekend against an unheralded, but very competitive, Robert Morris squad.

It has been the same old story for the Michigan hockey team. Not the one where it scores five goals a game, but the one where it has multiple defensive breakdowns.

And unlike previous games, the offense couldn’t bail out its sloppy defensive play.

The No. 10 Michigan hockey team has done it again.

After coming back to tie Union, 5-5, last weekend after being down 3-1 at the end of the second period, the Wolverines faced a similar predicament Friday night at Yost Ice Arena.

Kyle Connor is off to a fast start for Michigan.

No. 10 Michigan will defend its home ice and untarnished resume in a two-game series on Friday and Saturday.

Justin Selman has had a fast start to his senior season.

As an assistant captain for the Michigan hockey team, Justin Selman has a lot of responsibilities both on and off the ice.
