Through one game against Vermont and two exhibition games, this season’s initial impressions are much of the same — Michigan has given up at least four goals in each game, and has allowed scores on five of 10 opposing power plays.
The two brothers — Quinn, a sophomore defenseman on the Michigan hockey team and Jack, a forward for the U.S. National Team Development Program (NTDP) U-18 team — have played together for nearly their entire lives. But Friday will be the first time the two take the ice to play against each other.
The Michigan hockey team (0-1) took the ice at Yost Ice Arena for the second time in as many days. After losing to Vermont, 5-2, in their season opener, the Wolverines looked to rebound in an exhibition match against Waterloo.
As senior right wing Will Lockwood glided around the right circle at the 3:30 mark of the second period, there was a moment, albeit a brief one, where there was nothing but clear ice between he and his second goal of the game.
Luke Morgan, a redshirt sophomore forward on the Michigan hockey team, grew up going to Yost Ice Arena and watching the Wolverines play. A native of Brighton, Michigan — just 25 minutes north of Ann Arbor — Morgan dreamed of playing at Michigan as a kid.
