Minnesota State's Travis Morin and Steve Wagner were busy guys last Saturday against Minnesota. Like just about every college team, the Mavericks don't keep track of ice time, but on Monday, one of Minnesota State's coaches estimated that Wagner played 32 minutes, while Morin played 28 minutes. Those numbers are incredibly impressive as they are, and I think they may even be a tad on the conservative side.
Morin was rewarded for his efforts with the rare honor of being selected as one of the three stars of the game, despite not registering a point for only the third time this season. Wagner has quietly developed into one of the most dependable and versatile defenseman in the WCHA.
