08/09 Stats: 20-7, 2.93 GAA, 0.906 save %

09/10 Role: Redshirt

08/09 Recap: Played last season in the North Pacific Hockey League, and was a late addition to the Badgers as a walk on w/ the opportunity to gain a scholarship as he progresses.

Biggest Strength: Never seen him play.

Biggest Weakness: See above.

09/10 Thoughts: When he committed, it was stated that he would redshirt this season. There really wouldn’t be any PT anyway. Mitch is another home grown walk on, replacing Jeff Henderson and Ryan Jeffery who graduated last season.

Prediction: Redshirt practice goalie
