By HAL APPLEBAUM

Always outmanned, but never
outfought, the Michigan hockey
team ended the '58-'59 season with
a disappointing 8-13-1 record.
However Wolverine Coach Al
Renfrew is optimistically looking
forward to the coming season.
Forced by injuries to play with
only an 11-man squad the Wolver-
ines were consistently pitted'
against squads of 17 and 18.
Against such odds the Wolverines
battled brilliantly, but in many
instances the obstacles were too
difficult to overcome and defeat
was the inevitable result.

The 1959-60 season will also
mark the innaugural season of the
newly formed Western Hockey As-
sociation. Late in June the Wolver-
ines announced their plans to join
this loop which grew out of and
was thea result of the disbanding of
the Western Intercollegiate Hockey
Association after the 1957-58 sea-
son.
The members of the WHA are
the same as those of the old WIHL.
Besides Michigan are Michigan
State, Minnesota, North Dakota,
Michigan Tech, Colorado College
and Denver. Most of the difficul-
ties that led to the collapse of the
WIHL have been ironed out in the
new loop.

the fourth place team. Two-game
series will be played on the home
ice of the first and second place
teams. If the teams should split
the two games the team with the
highest goal total would be de-
clared winner of the playoff. For-
merly the first two teams auto-
matically qualified for the NCAA
playoffs.
For the second successive year
Michigan will be captained by de-
fenseman Bobbie Watt. Last year
as a junior Watt was a mainstay
on defense for the Wolverines and
early in the season Watt played
upwards of 50 minutes a game. For
his great play he was named on
the All-American team.
Up front the Wolverines will
also have returning lettermen
forming the nucleus of a fine
team. Top forwards are Bob White,
rugged center, who was an All-

American each of his first two sea-
sohs and junior Dale MacDonald,
the Wolverines' leading goal-get-
ter, who scored 19 goals last sea-
son.
Steve Bochen, last year's most
improved player, Pat Cushing and
Gary Mattson are the other re-
turning lettermen at the forward
slots.
Lost by graduation from the
frontline are John Hutten, voted
most valuable member of the squad
and Don Gourly and Jay Katz.
Two Defensemen Return
Butch Nielsen and Ed Mateka,
who became eligible at mid-year,
and went on to win letters, will re-
turn at defense. The lone defense-
man to graduate was Barrie' Hay-
ton, noted bad boy, and holder of
Michigan and WIHL records for
penalties.
Goalies Ross Childs and Jim
Coyle who split the chores in the
nets last season will be back, al-
though Childs has only one semes-
ter of eligibility remaining.
The Wolverines should be great-
ly aided by a group of flashy soph-
omores who will see varsity action
for the first time during the
Thanksgiving recess.
Included in this group are for-
wards Gerry Kolb, John Lung-
hammer, Ken Hinnigan, Carl
White and Bill Kelley. John Pal-
enstein looms as the outstanding
defensive prospect.
Icers Have Good Schedule
Renfrew has arranged a top-
flight schedule for his squad. The
season opens with a tour East over
Thanksgiving to play St. Lawrence,
Clarkson and the University of
Toronto.
Colorado College and Denver,
absent from the schedule last year,
will return to give Ann Arbor fans
a chance to see the two teams that
have dominated collegiate hockey
in the last few years. The home
schedule also includes games with
Minnesota, Michigan State and
Michigan Tech. There is also al
possibility that Michigan may
travel west to play amateur teams
in Los Angeles over the Christmas
holidays.
Last season was only the second
time that Michigan failed to qual-
ify for the NCAA Championship

playoffs since they were inaugurat-
ed in 1946. Since then Michigan

Detroit's Olympia Stadium. Su-
perior goal tending by Childs held

has won six championships and the Russians at bay during mostI

was runner-up twice.
Highlights of the 1958-59 season
were exhibitions against the Rus-
sian national team and the Detroit.
Red Wings, and regular season vic-
tories over Michigan State, Michi-
gan Tech, Minnesota and the
NCAA champions, North Dakota.
Russians Overcome Wolverines
On Jan. 5 a combined Michigan-
Michigan State squad skated
against the Russian Nationals at

of the first, but eventually their
overwhelming experience paid off
and the visitors skated off with a
7-3 victory. A crowd of 7,000
turned out to see the game, which
was played under international
rules unfamiliar to most American
spectators.
The Wolverines played their final
game with the Detroit Red Wings
in Ann Arbor last December. A
Big Ten rule was recently passed

which forbids Big Ten schools
from playing exhibitions with pro-
fessional teams and so this fine se-
ries has been concluded. The last
game in the series saw the pros
win, 8-3, in a surprisingly rugged
game.
Four regular season opponents
came close to sweeping series
from the Wolverines, but in each
instance the home icers rose to
the occasion and came up with a
victory.
Against Michigan State the Wol-
verines tallied three times in the

last two minutes to drop the Spar-
tans, 4-2, at East Lansing. After
falling three times to Minnesota
and Michigan Tech the Wolver-
ines bounced back to win the sea-
son's finale against both by iden-
tical 5-4 scores.
The NCAA champions North Da-
kota won their first encounter
with Michigan, 6-1, in a game
ended midway in the third period
by a fight which erupted into a
near-riot. But the next night the
Wolverines outskated the NoDaks
and came off with a 4-2 victory.
