High-scoring Huskies

Michigan Tech -- Minnesota State's opponent this week -- tied Northern Michigan 4-4 on Tuesday night, putting up 53 shots along the way. These don't appear to be your same-old Huskies. They're 2-0-1, having defeated NMU and Lake Superior State last weekend and have 14 goals in three games (4.67 goals per game). Last season, Tech went 5-30-1 for a national-worst .153 winning percentage. They also averaged just 2.06 goals per game.

Senior wing Bennett Royer has four goals and two assists already, while senior defenseman Deron Cousens has six assists, four of which came in Tuesday's game.

Forward Milos Gordic was named WCHA rookie of the week for his play over the weekend. Gordic, who now has three goals and one assist, is considered a freshman as he was granted a medical hardship season after suffering a season-ending injury 10 games into last season.
