The Michigan hockey team begins play in the NCAA Tournament at 8 (CT) Friday night against Cornell in Green Bay, Wis.

The Wolverines, the Midwest's top seed, return several key players, including goaltender Shawn Hunwick, forward Luke Glendening and defenseman Lee Moffie, from a run that brought them within one goal of the national title last year.

However, Michigan lost two of its best goal scorers (Carl Hagelin and Louie Caporusso) after last season. That weight has been picked up by freshman Alex Guptill, junior A.J. Treais and senior David Wohlberg, who missed last season’s playoff run with an injury.
