THE MICHIGAN DAILY
By BRIAN DEMING
Junior centerman Angie Moretto was
selected last night as the Michigan hockey
team's Most Valuable Player for the
The award was presented at the an-
nual Hockey Awards Banquet held at the
Ann Arbor Inn and sponsored by the
The selection of Moretto came as no
surprise to Michigan hockey followers.
The 6-4 Toronto native came through with
30 goals for the Wolverines this season
averaging nearly a goal per game. Mo-
retto amassed 55 points for Michigan, 16
points more than any teammate.
Moretto has come into his own as
one of the premier centermen in the
WCHA. Placing his 210-pound frame
squarely in front of opponent goaltend-
ers, he used his size and strength to
stay there. A centering pass and a quick
slap of his stick was often followed with
a red light and a familiar leap of de-
light from the imposing centerman.
Scoring 65 goals already in his career
at Michigan, Moretto's reputation is in-
famous throughout the league. The ap-
pearance of number seven never fails to
arouse a healthy round of boos from rival
Dave Debol was the recipient of the
Most Colorful Rookie Award. One of ten
freshmen on this year's squad, Debol
contributed 12 goals and 12 assists for the
Maize and Blue.
A Detroit native, Debol was particularly
instrumental in the demise of Michigan
State at Michigan's final home game
February 28. The freshman earned a hat
trick and then some, scoring four times
in Michigan's 11-8 triumph.
That victory and Michigan's subsequent
7-5 win over the Spartans the next night
at East Lansing were two important high-
lights of the 20-16 season. Those triumphs
gave Coach Dan Farrell's charges added
momentum in overcoming Colorado Col-
lege in the first round of the WCHA
(Western Collegiate Hockey Association)
Minnesota ended the Wolverines' NCAA
playoff hopes by outscoring Michigan 8-5
in the second round.
The season cannot be called a great
success although Michigan ended with
the most wins in 11 years for a Wolver-
ine hockey team. The dekers placed a
disappointing sixth in the WCHA.
However, the course of the long schedule
was interspersed with signs of excellence.
Besides the sweep of Michigan State and
the first round playoff victories, Michigan
upset Harvard 3-2, handing the Crimson
one of their four season losses.
The Maize and Blue also downed NCAA
champion Michigan Tech in three of their
Michigan is expected to be in the thick
of the WCHA title race next season losing
only five men from this year's squad.
Those five players received special recog-
notion for their efforts over the last four
years. Those seniors are captain Randy
Trudeau, Frank Werner, Gary Kardos,
Randy Neal, and Paul Paris.
The Wolverines will miss the leader-
ship of Trudeau. A particularly per-
sonable man as well as a fine defense-
man, the Chatham, Ontario native has
been captain of the Wolverine team over
the past two seasons. In his career at
Michigan 'Trudy' has compiled a total
of 20 goals and 11 assists.
Werner also received a special award
from the Dekers for scoring the first goal
in Yost Ice Arena. That was an unassisted
goal against Waterloo, November 2, 1973.
Freshman Kip Maurer was presented
with the Most Improved Player Award.
The Detroiter helped spark the late sea-
son drive and ended the year with a pair
of goals and four assits.
Receiving the Carl Isaacson Memorial
Trophy was defenseman Rob Palmer.
This honor is for academic as well as ath-
letic excellence. Palmer, a sophomore in
LSA ended the year with 3 goals and 13
