then, brother, the Michigan hock- in penalties and
eymen want you.,e tend
Not to play, but merely to drop StrengtL
down to the Coliseum some Fri-H-
day or Saturday night to see
where you have gone wrong.
According to head Coach Al
Renfrew, the 1966-7 edition of the
Michigan icers should give the
fans more of the same patented
excitement they received last year
plus an experienced and poised
squad.
14 Lettermen Back
"We had 19 lettermen from last
year's team, and only five have
departed because of graduation.
That leaves 14 remaining plus a
handful of talented freshmen who
should come up and give us a
hand; Besides, we'll have Mel back
for one semester."
Mel happens to be Mel Waka-
bayashi, the All-American cen-
ter from Chatham, Ont. who cap-
tained the Wolverines last year
and led the WCHA in scoring in
1965. "Waka" 'for the past three
seasons has thrilled the Wolverine
fans with his fast skating and un-
canny stickhandling which has
-well, just ask any goalie in the
WCHA what it means to see little
Mel coming down on them all
alone. Mel has one more semester
of eligibility which he will use up
in the firstfive games of the sea-
son.,
Kid Line Returns
Also returning from last year's
squad is the "kid line" of brothers
Lee and ,1966-67 Captain Mike
Marttila and Bruce Koviak which
did their share of growing up last
season. All former Junior Red
Wings, this trio combined for 52
points with the Marttilas netting
12 and helping out on 12 goals.
Koviak scored 13 goals and had
9 assists.
The Wolverines will be strong in
netminders this season with jun-
ior Harold Herman back. Herman
stepped into the starting goalie
* position last year at the Boston
Tournament and wouldn't let Greg
Page, who will be winding up his
last year here, back in.
sHerman Stops Huskies
Herman, also an ex-member of
the Junior Red Wings, finished
the year with a respectable 3.9
R goal-per-game average and had
505 saves in his 18 games and one
shutout. Herman's best effort and
most remembered of the 1965-6
season was his series against the
league-leading and always tough
Huskies of Michigan Tech. He held
the high-scoring Huskies to a
scant three points in two nights
and turned away 73 shots on goal.
Returning to help the offense

d out on defense

will be senior stalwarts Hank
Brand and Mark Thompson.
When asked to comment on the
yearlings of the freshman team
Coach Renfrew would only say:
"Of course, it's kind of early to
tell how good they're going to be.
We'll know a lot more when they
start skating. All I can tell you
now is to be sure and mention all
their names."
All right, coach, here are the 10
freshman candidates who must
fill six vacancies. Leading con-
tender to give Herman some trou-
ble is sophomore netminder James

Keough. The six forwards who'
plan to give the present Wolverine;
contingent a run for their jobs are
Randy Binnie, Mike Materna,
Mickey Gray, Doug Galbraith,
Paul Domm, and Allan Brooks.
Three Soph Defensemen
Causing the varsity defense to
check a little harder this fall in+
practice will be sophomore hope-+
fuls Phil Gross, Lars Hansen, and
Craig Malcolmson.
This is the team that Coach
Renfrew will field in 1966-7 and
he's sure it will be a good, well-
balanced and hard skating team.

"We'll be improved over last
year," Renfrew added, "and I fig-
ured that last year we missed be-
ing NCAA champs by one point."
Some of you might remember
that Michigan finished up last
year in fifth place with a 9-9
loop record and a 14-13 slate
overall and wonder how Renfrew
can make such a statement. Well,
in the first round of the WCHA
playoffs which last year for the
first time included all eight teams
instead of the first division, thei
Wolverines were eliminated by a
hot Spartan team 3-2, a sixth
