Speedy Icers Open Against Chat ham
By GRAYLE HOWLETT
Last year with such veterans as
All-American Mel Wakabayashi,
Barry MacDonald, Bob Ferguson,
Ted Henderson, and Hank Brand
returning, the Michigan icemen
were the concensus pick for the
This year with the above men-
tioned departed, except for Mel
whose eligibility extends through
tht first semester only, the Wolver-
ines' future appears much brighter.
What a difference a year makes.
Especially when that year pro-
duced a fifth-place finish in the
WCHA, a 14-0 record, and strong
nucleus for the 1966-'67 season.
Speed, balance, and goal-tending
are the plus factors for the Michi-
gan icers this season and hope-
fully they will outweigh the in-
experienced tag acquired from a
roster of six sophomores on of-
fense, and four on defense.
"We're going to be fine this
year," Head Coach Al Renfrew
commented, "but we're sure going
to miss Mel this season. You know
he only is available to us for the
first six games."
Play This Weekend
Two of those six games come
this weekend when the Michigan
Icers play a home and home series
with the Chatham Juniors, a team
sponsored by the Montreal Cana-
dians in Canada's Border City
Ieague. Incidentally, Chatham is
"The purpose of these games
before our regular season games,"
Renfrew mentioned, "is to give us
a look. We try to play everybody
and, frankly, it's a difficult sched-
ule. Chatham, for example, is

Renfrew observed, "and possibly
we'll have a little trouble scoring.
But a definite strength is our
speed. Also we'll be adequate at
Adequate seems to be an under-
statement as preseason practice
has been spiced with the fight
for the netminder's job between
last year's surprise regular, Harold
Herman, and sophomore aspirant
Jim Keough from Toronto. Last
year, in the Holiday tournament
in Boston, Herman took over the
goal from starter Greg Page, turn-
ed in another fine performance
against Denver a week later, and
was firmly entrenched in front of
the nets for the rest of the cam-
Keough's hoping some of that
sophomore magic might rub off on
him. "All I can say is that right

On offense, Michigan is not so,

Greg Page is still on hand ready
to take back the position.
While Michigan surprised many
with their fifth-place finish last
year, even more surprising was

the perfect indication of how tough
this league ' is. You can't predict
how a team's going to do because
any team can beat any other. I
wouldn't even hazard a guess as
how we'll wind up."
Renfrew wouldn't conme right out
and say that Michigan Tech was
the team to beat but he did em-
phasize that "they've gotten off
to a great start by beating Denver
twice last weekend."

He puts it this way: "Just continuing
