The Wolves opened their season in the Great Lakes Collegiate Hockey League (GLCHL) against the Oakland University Golden Grizzlies in Rochester this past Saturday. Unfortunately, they opened their season with a loss, falling 6-1 to the Grizzlies.
A rivalry game, penalties were aplenty and three of the Grizzlies six goals were on the power play. Every goal for the Grizzlies were scored by a different player. The lone goal for the Wolves came from freshman forward, Cody King late in the third period. Ryan Kelly and Casey McLogan assisted on the goal.
The Wolves also added insult to injury, but vice-versa in this case. Late in the second period, senior forward Rob Zubke was involved in a collision at center ice. He left the game and never returned. It turns out he had a separated shoulder, and could be out for some time.
Defenseman Kyle Horn was given a game misconduct in the first period for hitting from behind, putting the Wolves down two men.
Originally, the Wolves were set to play the Golden Grizzlies in a home and home, but the Friday game was rescheduled, with an announcement on the replacement game coming soon. Two games against Central Michigan the previous weekend were postponed as well, and will reschedule them for later in the season.
The Wolves next game will be against the University of Michigan on Saturday, October 6 at the Arctic Coliseum in Canton at 8:30pm.
Finally, if you are a student with some extra time on your hands, and love hockey, the Wolves are looking for a student equipment manager. If you are interested, contact Assistant Coach, Chris Haltinner (email).
