For Michigan coach Red Berenson, these games have become a reunion with longtime friend Mel Pearson, who coaches the Huskies.

Michigan has already started each of its three goaltenders this season.

Three games into the season, all three Wolverine goaltenders have had the chance to start, but the situation still isn’t any clearer.

The No. 13 Michigan hockey team weathered the storm, emerging with a 2-1 win over Ferris State Friday night at Ewigleben Arena.

Nolan De Jong said his team is working to bear down on defense to replace its lost offensive firepower.

Through four games, the Bulldogs have been outscored 13-8 by their opponents.

James Sanchez made a statement by scoring the first two goals of his career Saturday against Union.

Sanchez, Shuart and Evan Allen have blended well so far on Michigan's third line.

Brendan Warren, Tony Calderone and Dexter Dancs form Michigan's only all-veteran line.

After the Wolverines fell to Union on Friday, Michigan coach Red Berenson and his staff decided to give the his second line more defensive responsibility Saturday. They were assigned to Union’s first line, and the difference was obvious.

Sam Piazza has been a key contributor on offense with two goals for Michigan so far.

After two games, the junior defenseman is tied for the team lead with two goals.
