Hogan No. 1
To answer the question posed last night, U-M head coach Red Berenson said following the game that, despite the shutout by Billy Sauer, Bryan Hogan is still their No. 1 goalie.
“Bryan Hogan has done a great job. I would tell you that he’s still our No. 1 goalie,” Berenson said. “But I think it was a time where you needed to put the other goalie in and challenge your team and challenge him.”
Also last night, junior captain Chris Summers was slammed into the boards 23 seconds into the game and did not return after the first period. According to The Ann Arbor News, Berenson said Summers suffered a head injury and didn’t know the extent of the injury.
