the ice the games are often historic. Of course, the rivalry between Michigan and Ohio State is well documented, and a February
28th match up between the two teams is lined up at Yost Ice Arena. There is no reason for any hardcore Wolverine fan to miss
this one. Check out all of the great games at Yost Ice Arena this season right here on StubHub.

the ice is nothing new to the Wolverines as they have also won nine conference tournament championships. Coach Red Berenson
will be looking to fire up the troops and to get the most out of them this season. Should he be successful there could be
no stopping the Wolverines on the ice. Led by junior defenseman and captain Mac Bennett, Michigan will undoubtedly have a
staunch defense that will not be easy to score on. Senior Derek DeBlois will be looking to light up the scoreboard at the
forward position once again but this year he should have even more help from sophomore forward Andrew Copp. This could well
be the year that the Wolverines establish their dominance in the new Big 10 hockey conference and possibly bring home the
first national championship in almost two decades. Be sure to be part of what could be a historic season in Ann Arbor right
from the start.
