out to scalp
By TIM MAKINEN
When the Miami Redskins skate onto
the ice tonight at Yost Ice Arena, astute
Michigan fans may notice that the Red-
skins bear a striking resemblance to
'the Wolverines of last year.
The Redskins (1-3) were seriously
hurt by graduation, losing their top
three scorers and defensemen. The
situation on defense is especially
reminiscent of Michigan's plight a year
.ago. For Miami, only senior Andy Mc-
Millan returns from last year's squad to
patrol the Redskin defensive end.
"McMILLAN IS our elder
statesman," said Miami coach Steve
Cady, "and he is actually a converted
forward and has only been a defen-
seman for a year and a half. We'll be
dropping back another forward (Jim
Buettgen), and the game will be his fir-
st on defense."
Miami will play 12 or 13 freshman in
tonight's game, but the Wolverines may
have difficulty taking advantage of that
inexperience if Redskin goalie Al
Chevrier is up to his usual heriocs in
Described as "outstanding" by
Michigan coach John Giordano,
Cherrier held the Wolverines to one and
three goals, respectively, in Miami's
two victories over the Blue last season.
In addition, he is currently rated 20th
among all Division I goalies.
"Most everything we do will center
around Al Chevrier." Cady said. "He is
the backbone of our program and his
performance is indicative of our poten-
tial for success."
Despite the loss of its three leading
scorers, Miami will still have some of-
fensive threats, particularly seniors
Dave Wheeldon and Greg Lukas, and
junior Andy Cozzi. Among them,
Wheeldon is probably the best, posting
16 goals and 22 assists last season. The
right wing is currently leading Miami

in scoring, and Cady feels that
Wheeldon will have to be a catalyst for
the young Redskin front lines.
"(Wheeldon's) very good," commen-
ted Giordano. "He's not an especially
tenacious checker, but he can certainly
put the puck in the net."
Both teams will try to break losing
streaks tonight, and each is looking for
its first CCHA victory. Miami (1-3) lost
to Ferris State last weekend, 4-0 and 6-
4, and has not had a victory since its fir-
st game of the season, when it disposed
of Windsor, 5-3.
Michigan (1-4), meanwhile, is coming
off 9-1 and 6-4 losses to Ohio State.
Those were games in which the
Wolverines played very poorly at
times, yet occasionally displayed very
determined hockey as well.
If the Wolverines play determined
hockey tonight against the young and
inexperienced Redskins, fans should
get a glimpse of how far Michigan has
progressed from last season when it
was in the same boat, experience-wise,
as Miami is now.

Five games into the young Michigan
hockey season; five new players have
hit the ice, with regularity.
The four freshmen and one
sophomore new to maize and blue jer-
seys are center John Bjorkman, sixth
so far in team scoring; Brad Jones,
another center, who has tallied two
assists; left wing Bruce Macnab who
scored his first collegiate goal in the
season opener against Michigan-
Dearborn; and Dan Goff, brother of
sophomore defenseman, Pat. The lone
sophomore is Notre Dame transfer
Greg Hudas, a 6-5 defenseman who also
lettered in baseball for the Irish.
"They're playing like freshman
should," said coach John Giordano.
"They're getting better. Goff and Dan
Carroll (another rookie who has yet to
see action) are coming along."
HUDAS, THE hard-hitting Troy
native, is happy with his change of
schools, especially since Notre Dame
discontinued its hockey program.
"It's going a lot better," Hudas
said. "I played-sparingly-I guess
you could say. I was not happy. Now,
the coach is giving me a fair shake. I'm
playing well and things are looking up."
The question of Hudas donning a
baseball cap for the Wolverines is still
up in the air. Because of the transfer,
Hudas will be ineligible to play baseball
until his junior year, unless he appeals
his case with the NCAA. But right now,
"the chances are not good. More than
likely," Hudas said, considering his
year of ineligibility, "a lot will depend

Hudas in their own end, Giordano is
