Ryan A. Sosin

Offensive Scout

The 10-goal weekend was impressive, especially on the road. Michigan outshot Nebraska-Omaha 36-19 on Saturday and created quality scoring chances throughout the game. When Hensick and Nystrom are rolling, this offense is very explosive.

Defensive Scout

The Wolverines gave up a disappointing seven goals and allowed a number of odd-man rushes and breakaways. On the other hand, Michigan played a hard-hitting style from the get-go and seemed to make the extra effort to block shots and clear pucks.

Special Teams Scout

Michigan would have never escaped with four points in the series if it weren’t for its power play. Over the weekend, the Wolverines scored a whopping six power play goals. Meanwhile, the penalty kill limited the Mavericks to just two.

Goaltender Scout

Montoya was shaky in the opening minutes, but he got two wins. That has to count for something. In the third period of Saturday’s game, he showed me why he was drafted sixth overall in the NHL draft, making post-to-post saves on multiple Maverick rushes.
