The Scouting Report
The two-time defending PAC-8 champion Huskies continue to fend off contenders during a two-game set against Montana Tech. The Huskies have posted a 12–8–1–1 record through 21 games and a 6–3–1 record in conference play, positioning themselves within skating distance of the top of the league leaderboard. With a team high of 27 goals, sophomore forward Ryan Minkoff has conducted an offensive clinic alongside his partner in attack, senior forward Corey James. Between the pipes, goalie Jacob Gilmore has shown a vast repertoire of saves, ferociously turning away pucks as if they were door-to-door vacuum salesmen.
Members of the Pacific-12 Conference, the University of Washington Huskies athletic department boasts a rich history of triumphs. In 2001, their football team added a Rose Bowl victory to a trophy case that already contained the laurels of four national titles, the most recent of which occurred in 1991. In 2011, the men's basketball team claimed its third Pac-12 tournament title, and in 2005, the women's volleyball team steamrolled competition en route to its first-ever national title. Much of the Husky-related glory unfolds on the floors and fields of UW's lineup of pristine facilities, which includes the historic 72,500-seat Husky Stadium and raucous Alaska Airlines Arena.
