Junior Carl Hagelin, pictured here against Niagara, leads the Wolverines in points, shots and power-play scoring this season as Michigan's best offensive threatB
Firs-round series holds reunion
for Hagelin and Swedishlinemate

By RYAN KARTJE
Daily SportsEditor
For some players, it's hard to
feel at home during the long hock-
ey season. And that's especially
true when your home is over 4,100
miles away.
But that's how junior forward
Carl Hagelin has spent the last
three years at the University of
Michigan. Hagelin's hometown of
Sodertalje, Sweden sits near the
eastern coast of the Scandinavian
Peninsula.
But as the Wolverines take the
ice against Bemidji State on Satur-
day in the first round of the NCAA
Tournament, Hagelin will have a
little slice of home waiting for him
in Fort Wayne.
Emil Billberg, who plays on the
Beavers' fourth line, was Hagelin's
best friend, roommate and line-
mate for three years in Sweden
whenboth were in high school and
juniors. And since leaving Sweden,
the pair hasn't seen each other.
"We're excited to see each

other," Hagelin said. "He hasn't
seen me play in three years, I
haven't seen him play in three
years. It should be fun just to see
him around and hopefully beat
him."
And Hagelin's performance on
the ice, as one of Michigan's mar-
quee offensive threats, will be key
if the Wolverines hope to defeat
Bemidji State and move one step
closer to the Frozen Four.
Billberg hasn't had quite the
success Hagelin has this season,
notching just three points in the
regular season, but Hagelin called
attention to the fact that both were
competitive on the same line when
the played with Sodertalje J20.
His recent impact has not been as
loud as it was when Michigan was
struggling - the junior forward has
been the most consistent Wolverine
on offense this season - but Hage-
lin was still named to the CCHA
All-Tournament team this past
weekend and has tallied at least a
point in 16 of the last 17 games.
"Carl's a big part of this team,

and it'd be tough without him,"
junior Louie Caporusso said. "He
brings the speed, he brings a lot
of elements to this team. And he
shows up every night."
It's Hagelin's consistency that's
made him so valuable and will
prove him to be an asset through-
out the NCAA Tournament.
Hagelin leads the team in points
(47), shots (158) and power-play
scoring (20), and with his speed on
the ice, has developed into Michi-
gan's most dangerous offensive
threat.
Until Caporusso went on an
offensive tear in the season's sec-
ond half, Hagelin also led the team
in goals. And after being criticized
for his inability to light the lamp
last year, the newfound goal-scor-
ing ability was a huge plus for a
team that lost an important offen-
sive contributor in Aaron Palushaj
after last season.
"We all saw that coming," Capo-
russo said. "He has such good
speed, such good hands. We knew
he was going to finally get some

goals and put some points up on
the board, and we won't be sur-
prised when it keeps going."
Against Bemidji State, Hage-
lin's defensive, as well as offensive,
capabilities may be put to the test
unlike they have all season.
The Beavers boast a dominant
first line that's scored more than
50 goals this season, making it one
of the top lines in the country.
"My job is to shut them down
before I use my offense," Hagelin
said. "Defense is the first job ... We
better be extra aware defensively."
And though Billberg and Hage-
lin have exchanged a few words of
Swedish trash talk since finding
out their first round draw, Hagelin
won't let the reunion distract him
from Michigan's goal this week-
end - two wins and a bid to the
Frozen Four.
"At this moment, (the reunion)
doesn't really matter," Hagelin
said. "I'm playing for my team,
he's playing for his team ... The fuel
I have to win right now is enough
even without seeing him."
