Meet Your Freshmen 2008: Josh Robinson

It's just about hockey time! And like every year, the Tech Hockey Blog needs to introduce everyone to the newest Huskies. We're going to kick things off with Josh Robinson this year.

When I asked Coach Russell about Josh, he says that Josh is "a true freshman. [He] will push Robby for playing time."

MEG,
Someone asked me a question in an email so I thought I would ask you?

Who is going to score for MTU this season.

MeanEgirl said...

Weird. I think RWD got the same email... but I didn't.

Kattelus, Kinrade, Angelow, Bunger, Royer, Baker, Cousens, St. Louis, Schwarz, Lord, Kittie, Gwilliam, Gagne, Vlaisavljevich, Kivisto, Dobson, Soley, Reddick, Rohn, Lickteig, MacLeod, Olson, and Doriott most likely. Don't be surprised if Nolan, Robinson, and Cramer put up some assists.

Glad I could help. :)

OMG hilarious. Goon, did that guy at least acknowledge you were a UND fan? He assumed I was a Tech fan.
