Air Force Junior Andrew Volkening shuts out stunned Michigan

An amazing performance from Air Force and Junior goalie Andrew Volkening as they have shut out Michigan 2-0 in the first game of the NCAA tournament! In fact this improbably win came as Volkening’s third consecutive shutout running up a string of 218 minutes now without allowing a goal.

Shots on goal – UM 43-AF 13

Michigan falls to Air Force in opening round of NCAA Tournament from Michigan Daily

Air Force beats Michigan 2-0 for first-ever NCAA hockey win from Colorado Springs Gazette who wrote:

“Had it not been for goalie Andrew Volkening, however, the Falcons would be heading home with their season over. While Air Force managed just 13 shots, Michigan poured 43 on Volkening – more than he had seen in any game this season.

But the 6-foot-2 junior was unbeatable, turning away every shot he faced – including many on Michigan’s seven failed power plays – and recording his third consecutive shutout.”

Lots of love for Jac



Lots of love for Jacob Markstrom’s beautiful new Bauer Vapor 1X custom graphics, but did you know he wasn’t really the first to wear it? When we talked to him around Christmas about the custom design we knew was coming, he said it was already on the pads worn by fellow Swede Filip Gustavsson at the World Junior Hockey championships. Look closely at the background graphic of Gustavsson’s pads (scroll through) and other than eliminating the solid block on the top corners, looks like he was right. Still gorgeous though. #InGoalisInTheRoom
