Tomorrow the University of Mary hockey team will play embark upon their second season ever.
The Marauders had an amazing first season. They finished with a record of 39-6-2. They also had a couple of players that received awards from the ACHA. One is returning defensemen Marshall Tschida, he was named to the ACHA All-West Region team. The other is goaltender Aaron Nelson, he was named ACHA All-West Region Player of the Year. He was also named an All-American. Nelson is now an assistant and Lance Knudson takes over.
“Sitting right behind him was Lance Knudson on our roster,” head coach Daniel Huntley said. “No. 1 on our roster. He was 18-0-1. He didn’t lose a game last year. So when they say where are we with our goaltending, I say ‘Look at the stats.’ Goals against: Lance was better. Save percentage: They were right even with each other.”
The Marauders start the second season tomorrow when they host North Dakota State at the Starion Sports complex.
