Former CCHA stars suiting up in the NHL.

If you are a local hockey/college hockey fan you probably heard the great story of how Shawn Hunwick went from lying in his bed prior to class to backing up for the Columbus Bluejackets last night. Today Hunwick signed on for the remainder of the year with the Blue Jackets. It is a great accomplishment for a kid who had to walk on to the Michigan hockey team and earn his time in net. Congratulations and the best of luck, from a Spartan.

Torey Krug left Michigan State last week to sign with the Boston Bruins in hopes to gain some experience for upcoming NHL seasons. It looks like the time for Krug to play has come sooner rather then later as he has impressed the Bruin’s staff enough to suit up for tonight’s game against the Washington Capitals. I, along with the rest of MSU will be rooting for Krug and hopefully finding a television with the Bruins-Caps game on.  Krug did dress for the game tonight and participate in warmups, but is listed as a scratch. Hopefully we can see him in action this season, although it seems unlikely.

Best of luck on the next step Gentlemen.
