By DAVE WEIR
Michigan's hockey team has a'
100-1 record and two holiday
tournament championships to its
credit so far this season.
Yet Wolverine Coach Al Ren-
frew will be forced to "switch all
the lines around and experiment
with different combinations" in
the upcoming series with Denver.
Why? . In the words of Ren-
frew, "Mel is gone."
He is referring, of course, to
All-American center Mel Waka-
bayashi. now graduated and sign-
ed by the Detroit Red Wings.
Wakabayashi's departure leaves
the icers without their top scorer
of the past two years. He also

This year, Renfrew finds the
young Denver squad "a little

to be one of the best teams we will'
play all year."
The Pioneers are led by a
brother combination of senior

Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Jim is
the leading Denver scorer in
WCHA competition with two goals
and six asists while the younger
Wiste has netted three goals and
