By ROGER ROSSITER
Some changes are in the offing
for the Michigan hockey program
in advent of the 1973-74 cam-
paign, and hopefully the biggest
will be a change in the Wolver-
ines' dismal won-loss-tie record
of 5-28-1 last season.
- The first change came way
back last February when veteran
Michigan hockey mentor Al Ren-
frew announced his retirement
from the coaching ranks to plug
the vacancy created in the Mich-
igan ticket department by Don
Weir's retirement.
For sixteen y e a r s Renfrew
piloted Michigan's hockey club,
amassing a 222-208-11 won-loss-
tie mark, five Big Ten cohamp-
ionships and one national title.
Renfrew also played on a na-

Icers
Last Year's Record: 5-28-1
Last Year's Finish: Fourth (Big
Ten), Tenth (last) (WCHA)
New Recruits: Doug Lindskog,
lw-c; Pat Hughes, rw; Greg
Natale, d; Kris Manery, c-rw
Outlook: Ain't no way but up
tional championship team during
his skating days at Michigan.
Appropriately, Renfrew .bowed
out a victor when the Wolver-
ines dumped North Dakota 3-2
in the '72'73 finale. The vic-
tory at Grand Forks was Michi-
gan's only road triumph of the
season.
Thus, the wheels began turn-
ing in the athletic hierarchcy with
the resulting naming of Michi-
gan Tech assistant coach Dan
Farrell to the head post by
Athletic Director Don Canham.
Farrell played for Tech in the
early '60s and later returned to
his alma mater where he hand-
led the brunt of Tech's recruit-
ing along with his d u t ie s as
assistant to head coach John
{Maclnnes.
At the time of his hiring, Far-
rell stated, "I hope to bring
Michigan to its rightful place
as a hockey power," which could
prove a monumental undertak-
ing in light of the Wolverines'
failures over the past few sea-
sons. '
Farrell inherited a young squad
that lost only four players to
graduation this past spring. Gone
are captain Rick Mallette, the
team's leading scorer last year
(7 goals, 28 assists), swingman
Mike Jarry who doubled at for-
ward and defense, plus forwards
Gary Connelly and Roy Ashworth.
Only two seniors return for
the upcoming season, Bob Fal-
coner, (10 goals, 14 assists),

and Julian Nixon, (6 goals, 12
assists). Neither is known for
his tremendous size or great
speed, but both play the kind
of gutty, two-way hockey that
pleases coaches and excites the
fans.
The Wolverines lacked the one
or two high scoring forwards
that most teams rely on for nec-
essary goal production. Evidence
to the point is the fact that
Michigan's leading goal scorer,
Frank Werner, tallied only 13
times. Right behind Werner was
right wing Gary Kardos with 12
goals despite the fact that he was
slowed by . a shoulder injury in
the latter stages of the season.
Don Fardig and Angie Mor-
etto, a pair of sophomore centers
who each notched ten goals and
finished second and third, respec-
tively, in total points for Michi-
gan, should each be prime candi-
dates for the coveted 20-goal
plateau this season. Moretto has
overwhelming size and proved a
tough customer for enemy de-
fensemen in front of the oppo-
sition's net. Known as one of the
best skaters and most deft pas-
sers on the team, Fardig was
one of a select few on the Wol-
verine roster to garner more
points than penalty minutes.
After sterling performances as
frashmen, Randy Neal and Paul
Paris suffered through the fa-
bled "sophomore slump" 1 a s t
year. This duo mustered only
half as many goals in their sec-
ond year of Western Collegiate
Hockey Association play as they
had in their rookie campaigns.
Better things from this pair are
a must for the Wolverines to
improve on that dismal last place
finish of a year ago.
The blue line corps returns
six veteran defensemen, three
juniors and three sophomores.
Much of the blame for Michi-
gan's seemingly non - existent
defense fell on these young
rearguards, but Farrell feels
this group has all the makings
of a real blue chip aggrega-
tion. With a year's experience
together under their belts plus
Farrell's institution of a tight-
checking, defense oriented style
of play, they could blossom into
one of the league's finest.
So impressed were the Wolver-
ines by junior defenseman Randy
Trudeau's desire and determin-
ation last year, they named him
team captain for the upcoming
season. Trudeau matured immen-
sely last year both in his de-
fensive skills and in his play on
the right point of the Michigan
power play. Look for Trudeau to
be right up at the top of the list
when it comes to all - league
awards time next spring.
One point Farrell vehemently
stressed was the need for relief
help for beleaguered goalie Rob-
bie Moore. As a freshman, Moore
played in 30.7 of the Wolverinees'
34 games and kicked out the
astronomical total of 1254 shots
on the Michigan goal. Though the
diminutive Moore had a none to
earthshaking goals against aver-
age of 5.7, he proved with his
catlike reflexes (and temper)
that he could play in the WCHA.
Although Michigan victories
were few and far between last
season, throughout the second
half of the campaign the Wol-
verines played much improved

hockey, but fell victims to a
plethora of one and two goal
losses. Perhaps the Wolverines
encouraging finish, a win and
tie at North Dakota, for their
only points on the road all
season, is an advance to the
resurrection of Michigan hoc-
key fortunes.
One thing that definitely will
be new in the upcoming hockey
season is the Wolverines' home
rink. The planned revamping of
Yost Fieldhouse into Yost Coli-
seum has already begun with
the remodeling scheduled to be
completed in time for the sea-
son's inauguration. The Yost
facility is expected to seat about
6,000 spectators, a vast improve-
ment in itself over the cramped
old "Michigan Coliseum where
shoehorns were needed to seat
a couple thousand patrons.
The final game played in the
Coliseum was perhaps an epi-
tome of Michigan's frustrations
last season. The Wolverines were
matching high-sticks with Min-
nesota - Duluth that Saturday
evening in the second game of a
weekend set. Duluth had pulled
to an apparently safe two goal
advantage, 8-6 with- under two
minutes to be played in the third
period. The Wolverines were ap-

plying relentless pressure, seem-
ingly in vain, on the Duluth goal,
when suddenly two quick whis-
tles saw Duluth lose two skaters
to the "sin bin" giving the Wol-
verines a two man advantage.
Coach Renfrew quickly yank-
ed Moore from the Michigan
goal to give the Wolverines six
attackers. Neal then netted a
fast goal to cut the deficit to
one, but the seconds kept tick-
ing away with what little hope
Michigan had for a tie and ov-
ertime.
' With the fans at the point
of delirium, the Michigan net
still empty and Duluth remain-
ing one man shy, Moretto non-
chalantly backhanded home a
nifty centering pass from Neal,
knotting the score with only
eight seconds left in regula-
tion time.
But as usual the ensuing over-
time period brought the Wolver-
ines the same old agony that
plagued them all season. Mid-
way through the ten minute ov-
ertime period a Duluth winger

extracted the puck from a pile
up to the left of the Michigan
net and dribbled a weak shot
through a maze of players to-
Ward the Michigan net. 1Moore,
then in goal for Michigan, never
saw the puck as it nicked the
right post, slide across the goal
crease, trickled off the left post
and inched over the goal line
for the winning marker.
That 9-8 ,overtime loss told the
story of the Wolverines entire
season. Frustration with appar-
ently no end, until things finally
fell together on the season's con-
cluding -weekend.
All signs indicate that the
WCHA title race should be a
dandy again this season. De-
fending league champion Den-
ver always plays tough hockey,
and last year's NCAA champs,
Wisconsin, over the past few
seasons have molded one of the
top hockey programs in the
country. Badger coach Bob
Johnson directed his team to a
third place tie in the WCHA,
