The official hockey season has ar-
in a home-and-home series this week-
end to kick off CCHA conference play.
Michigan (1-0) faces off against
Western Michigan (2-0) tonight at 7
p.m. at Yost Ice Arenaand tomorrow at
7 p.m. at Lawson Ice Arena in
Kalamazoo. The Wolverines lead the
series with the Broncos 30-20-5 and are

The Wolverines enterplayasthetop-
ranked team in the conference. They
just recently edged out Boston Univer-
sity for the top spot in the nation after
their 8-0 dismantling of Guelph last
Western's two early wins were also
over Canadian teams. The Broncos de-
feated Brock, 11-2, last Friday and
Western Ontario, 9-2, last Sunday.
"We set out to achievea lot of goals
against (Brock and Western Ontario)
which we did," Broncos coach Bill
The Broncos have started this season
where they left off. Western finished
the 1994-95 season with a sixth-place
tie in the CCHA and a 17-18-5 overall
and a 9-14-4 conference record.
This season, the Broncos held the
preseason No. 6 spot in the media's
conference poll, but they have the po-
tential to be one of the most dangerous
teams in the CCHA.
"I think (Western) will be one of the
top teams in our league," Michigan
coach Red Berenson said. "Their pro-
gram should be about ready to peak
right now in terms of their upperclass-
The Broncos showcase seven seniors
in their lineup, including an experi-

season, center Jeremy Browncompiled
25 goals and 17 points. He has two
goals and four assists this season.
He is joined by center/right wing
Jamal Mayers, who had 13 goals and33

Western returns a nearly intact de-
fense led by Steve Duke and Darren
Maloney. The Broncos only weakness
on defense appears to be in goal.
Western will have to deal with the
loss of goalie Brian Renfrew, who
owned a 3.54 goals against average last
season. Western has settled on Marc
Magliarditi, one of two freshmen goal-
ies on its roster, to replace Renfrew
between the pipes. Magliarditi has
stopped 54 shots and has allowed 4
goals over two games.
"They have an experienced defense,
(which) I think gained a lot of experi-
ence last year," Berenson said.
Michigan returned most of its roster
from last season's team which finished
first in the CCHA with a 30-8-1 overall
adds depth to the roster.
Twelve Wolverines had points last
week against Guelph, led by freshman
an assist. Berenson has shuffled the line-
up this season and will probably continue
to do so. Most of the shuffling will prob-
ably be done on the defensive end.
"I think we're ready to have a good
game against a good team," Berenson
said. "(We're) not sure about your spe-
cial teams. We need more power-play
time and penalty killing time and that
comes with playing."
