UAH Hockey ready for big WCHA battle

HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) - A big weekend sweep  in their last series against Lake Superior State puts the UAH Chargers in a three way tie for third place in the WCHA hockey conference.

A big series awaits at home Friday against Michigan Tech.

The Huskies come to town this weekend, a team with some pretty good talent, including the top returning goaltender in the league in Jamie Phillips.

The Huskies knocked the Chargers out of the League playoffs last season.

"I think this is more of, this is one of the teams to beat in the league, and our guys understand that," says Head Coach Mike Corbett. "And yes, there's a little bit of secondary that they knocked us out last year, it gives us more motivation."

Game one begins Friday at the Von Braun Center.
