in SCSU Sports/Sports by

The Huskies looked to bounce back Saturday after dropping game one against the Fighting Hawks Friday night. After lacking energy in their play in game one, the Huskies would come out with a change of batteries to begin this contest. It was a high flying first period that remained scoreless as the clock ticked towards the 10-minute mark. Captain Jimmy Schuldt would take a holding penalty and the Fighting Hawks would gain a man advantage. Sophomore forward Brock Boeser would rip a shot above the right circle that would hit a Husky defender and find junior defenseman Tucker Poolman in the high slot, getting it to sophomore forward Rhett Gardner to put it home to get North Dakota on the board at 10:35 in the first. The play was much better on both ends but the result was the same as yesterday as UND would take a 1-0 lead into the locker room after one.…

After an overall record of 31-9-1 last season and the loss of seven seniors, a first line defenseman, and the program’s star goaltender, the incoming class for the SCSU men’s hockey team have some very important spots to fill. Many of the team’s top-line players left, either after graduating or signing pro contracts, and they made up 52.6 percent of the team’s goals and points scored. The power play will be seeing plenty of changes. The Huskies were second in the nation in power-play goal percentage (29.5), and a majority of head coach, Bob Motzko’s, go-to players for the power-play are gone; Prow, Kossila, Morley, Benik, Russell, and Murray.  After Charlie Lindgren signed an NHL contract with the Montreal Canadiens following his junior season, possibly the most important question on the line is who will be the starting goaltender for the Huskies. With a new season brings a new team and…
