Michigan hockey team inks 6 players, including Team USA U-18 goalie
The Michigan hockey team announced Tuesday that six players for its 2012-13 freshman class have signed letters of intent.
Of the six players to sign, three are members of the Ann Arbor-based Unites States National Team Development Program Under-18 team, which plays its games at the Ice Cube.
"We're looking forward to what these players will bring to the Michigan hockey program," said head coach Red Berenson in a statement. "Each player will bring his own unique skill set to our team and will provide us with a talented and well-balanced freshman class heading into next season."
Coming to the Wolverines after two seasons with the USNTDP are defensemen Jacob Trouba and Connor Carrick, and goalie Jared Rutledge. The three other additions, Cristoval Nieves (Kent School, Rochester, N.Y.), Daniel Milne (St. Michael's, OJHL), Justin Selman (Siox City Stampede, USHL) are all forwards.
Michigan will attempt to snap its four-game winless streak at home this weekend as it hosts Northeastern University on Friday (7:35 p.m.) and Union College on Sunday (3:05 p.m.).
