Huskies Getting it Done

The Huskies don't just score on the ice. They don't just throw themselves in front of pucks, and work hard night and day to perfect their skills on the ice. There is definitely more to these young men that make them fit to be role models to future generations of Huskies.

It's unquestioned that the thing that makes this team special is their ability to work hard on the ice. They have a certain determination that propels them to victory when very few thinks it possible. This determination extends far beyond the ice arena and into the class room.

The 2006-2007 Michigan Tech Huskies Hockey team is the proud home to eleven members of the WCHA all-academic team, including four WCHA Scholar Athletes. The members of the team who spent the countless hours which resulted in the consecutive semesters with a GPA above 3.0 that was required to be recognized as a member of the All-Academic Team are:

Ryan Angelow
Mike Batovanja
Alex Gagne
Kevin Hachey
Lars Helminen
Derek Kitti
Alex Lord
Mark Malekoff
John Schwarz
Tyler Shelast
Tyler Skworchinski

Among these eleven Batovanja, Anglow, Maklekoff and Skworchinski but in the work receiving GPA above 3.5 to be named Scholar Atheletes.

This year the Huskies may be performing wonders on the ice, but it is the work that the team continuous does in the classroom that truly makes not only the Hockey program special, but Michigan Tech as well.

Where else are all the Huskies scoring, if not just on the ice? :P
