Sophomore Starts
Despite this help at the lower
weight class, there are still all
kinds of problems. Keen expects
to go with Nick Armelagos, from
Detroit, at the 123 lb. slot. Arme-
lagos is an untried sophomore who
is trying to fill the enormous gap
left by the graduation of ex-cap-
tain Mike Hoyles.
Fred Kellerman will probably
drop from 137 lbs. (where he won
the Big Ten championship last
year) 'to 130 lbs. to fill the gap
left by Ambi Wilbanks, the 1960

to injuries. Mel Nosanchuk is an
alternate at this weight and might
see action if Kellerman is unable
to go at top strength.
John Zauner, another sopho-

Dennis Fitzgerald, peerless in dual
meets last year and untouched in
the championships, will face Bob
Marshall, who was undoubtedly
his toughest foe last year.
Fitz beat Marshall last year by
one point, a close decision in the
final seconds. Marshall went on to
win every other match and will
undoubtedly be looking for re-

him a perfect season.

With injured wrestlers, ineligible

feared that the Wolverines will
have a more difficult time with
the Boilermakers than they did
last year, when Michigan won 23-
3, according to Keen, who said,
"When they're rough, they're very
rough, and I think they've got a
team that is good enough to beat
us very easily."

Cushing's Puck career:
OIce ates

If ever there was a story of thej
rpicae Canadianshockey player,
is the story of Michigan's Pa.ti
Born in Sudbury, Ontario with
ake Ramsey in his back yard,
ushing was skating and playing
ockey at the age of five. As a
atter of fact, in Low School
first, second, and third grades),
e played in three hockey leagues
As he grew older, Cushing pro-
ressed in the hockey leagues, as
he American boy would progress
a the various organized baseball
rgues. He always loved the game

It was at St. Mike's that Cushing
played what he considers his
greatest game. It was in a junior
hockey league play-off, and St.
Michael's was playing the Guelph
Biltmores in a three out of five
series. St. Michael's won the first
game, and in the third period of
the third game, when St. Mike's
was shorthanded, Cushing scored
the winning goal while killing a
Joe Primeau, Cushing's coach
at St. Michael's and a former star
of the Toronto Maple Leafs, play-
ed a big role in his development.
"He could really analyze a team,"
Cushing says of his former coach.
This acquired ability to size up
a team has contributed greatly to
Cushing's own success.
Bob Schiller, a former Wolver-
ine hockey star, was a key in-
fluence in Cushing's coming to
the University of Michigan, where
he could continue his education
and at the same time play hockey.
One of Cushing's greatest mo-
ments in hockey took place three
years ago when he was a freshman.!
Two Goals
The Michigan team was playing
an exhibition game with the De-
troit Red Wings, and in the second
period with the score 3-0 in favor
of the Wings, Cushing scored two
goals and became the hero of the
Flashy Skater
Always a flashy skater and fore-
checker, Pat often leaves his feet
while trying to steal the puck or
break up a rush. This overzealous
play nearly touched off a riot in
one of the games with Michigan
Tech last year when Pat, in an
attempt to steal the puck, left his
feet and barreled into the goalie.
Al Renfrew, Michiganrhockey
coach, has the highest praise for
As far as the Wolverine hockey
prospects for this year are con-
cerned, Cushing is optimistic. He
says: "Potentially we are as good
as any team in the league. With
hard work and a few breaks, we
could make the NCAA play-offs."
As far as the immediate pros-
pects concerning our coming seires
with North Dakota, Cushing says:
"We'll win both nights by a three-
goal margin.'

The Michigan hockey team
opens its WCHA schedule tonight
with the first game of a two game
set against North Dakota.
The Wolverines are 1-1 for the
season after last week's split with
Toronto, and hope to get off to a
good start in league play.
The Sioux have an advantage
over the Wolverines with four
league games already behind
them. All four were against high-
ly rated Michigan Tech, and three
of them were won by the Huskies.
Fast Start
North Dakota got off to a fast
start in the season with its 6-4
win over Tech, but then the
Huskies came back to win the
remaining three and outscored the
Sioux 24 to 12 in the series.
The Sioux lost eight of theirj
regulars through graduation last
year but were still picked to fin-
ish fourth in the league this
year, one place lower than last
season's finish.
The series figures as a grudge
match between the two clubs.
Needed Clincher
Last year Michigan came into
the last two games of the season
needing only one victory to clinch
fourth place and gain a spot in
the NCAA playoffs. The Wolver-
ines had been engaged in a dog-
fight for the last playoff berth
with Colorado College, and moved
into Grand Forks, North Dakota,
searching for the clincher.
After the smoke of battle had
cleared, Michigan found itself on
the short end of both games. The
two defeats pushed Michigan back
to fifth and elevated the Sioux to
The game has added importance
for Michigan Coach Al Renfrew,
since he was head coach at the
Dakota school four seasons ago.
Pint-Sized Center
The Sioux attack features three
well balanced lines and a pint-
sized center by the name of Bill
Colpitts, who at 5'5" and 145-
pounds is one of the smaller play-
ers in the league. Colpitts has
three goals and four assists so far
this season.
Leading the Michigan attack
this year is sophomore Gordon
"Red" Berenson. Berenson scored
four goals in the first two games
and is center on Michigan's num-

With three losses already, the
North Dakota team has its back

get back on the winning track.
