HUSKIES WIN WINTER CARNIVAL TITLE
Michigan Tech claimed its 42nd Winter Carnival title in its 64th year of existence by beating Alaska Anchorage 10-6 in total goals on the weekend. The Seawolves defeated the Huskies 5-4 on Friday (Feb. 8) before the hosts bounced back for a 6-1 victory—their largest of the season—Saturday (Feb. 9).

OVER .500 SINCE CHRISTMAS
Michigan Tech is 5-4-1 since Christmas with all four of its losses by one goal. The Huskies have outscored teams by a combined 33-19 in the 10 games over that span.

GORDIC NAMED CARNIVAL MVP
Junior Milos Gordic was named Winter Carnival MVP after a two-goal, two-assist weekend. The right wing had a goal and an assist in each game on the weekend to boost his season point total to 4-6=10. Gordic had 2-2=4 in the opening series of the year vs. Lake Superior State Oct. 11 & 13 and 2-2=4 this past weekend with just two points (both assists) in the 23 games in between.

FRESHMAN IMPACT
Freshmen accounted for five of the team's six goals in the 6-1 win vs. Alaska Anchorage Saturday (Feb. 9). For two of those rookies, it was their first collegiate goals. Walker Hyland scored on a shot from the point on the power play in the first period. C.J. Eick got in on a breakaway in the second period. Freshmen account for 60 of the team's 211 points this season (28.4 percent).

COPLEY WITH 10 STRAIGHT STARTS, BUT PHILLIPS SEES ACTION
Pheonix Copley surrendered five goals in the 5-4 loss to UAA on Friday (Feb. 8) but bounced back on Saturday (Feb. 9), giving up just one goal on 22 shots. The freshman owns a 2.86 goals against average and .908 save percentage. He has started every game since Christmas for the Huskies although he has not played every minute. With the Huskies leading 6-1 in the third period last Saturday, fellow rookie Jamie Phillips entered the game and played the final 9:16.

SPECIAL TEAMS STORY
Tech's power play scored on four of its seven opportunities last weekend to improve to 19.8 percent (22-of-111). The Huskies' penalty kill went 2-for-4 in the series and dipped to 80.2 percent. Tech and its opponents are converting power plays at the same percentage of 19.8.

PETAN WITH TEAM-LEADING 25 POINTS
Alex Petan had two goals in the 6-1 win over Alaska Anchorage and 2-1=3 in the series. The freshman right wing leads the team in points on the season with 10-15=25. Petan has 10 points in the last seven games and has run his scoring average to .93—seventh best in the nation among rookies.

THE SERIES
Michigan Tech owns a 48-65-13 all-time record against its arch rival, Northern Michigan, since the series began in 1979. The Huskies own a 26-27-8 mark against the Wildcats at home. Tech's last win in the series was Oct. 8, 2010—a 4-3 overtime win in Marquette. The Huskies' last win in Houghton was a 5-3 decision on Oct. 9, 2009.

JOHNSTONE ON A FOUR-GAME STREAK
Sophomore David Johnstone is on a four-game point streak after posting a combined three assists vs. Alaska Anchorage. The left wing, who is averaging a point per game since Christmas, is second on the team in total points with 8-15=23.

SUCCESS AGAINST FUTURE WCHA FOES
The Huskies are 5-3-1 against teams that will be in the WCHA next year with three such games to go in the regular season. All three are this week with Northern Michigan on Tuesday (Feb. 12) and Minnesota State Friday and Saturday (Feb. 15-16).

HUSKIES BITES
Tech has scored the first goal of the game in three straight contests and stands at 9-2-1 when that happens this season. The Huskies are 0-12-3 when their opponent scores first … Tech has played all but three of its games on the NHL-sized ice sheet this season … After a 2-6-0 start, the Huskies have played to a 7-8-4 record on the year.
