Hockey season is kicking into gear at all levels of play, and Magicians alumni are already making big impacts on their new teams early in the new season. See below for a list of former Magicians who are excelling at the next level.
University of Wisconsin (Big Ten)
The first ever Magicians skater to earn a Division I commitment is now a sophomore at the University of Wisconsin. After a freshman campaign where he registered 6 goals and 3 assists, Johnson is off to a fast start this year with 2 goals in the first four games of the year.
Northern Michigan University (WCHA)
The Finnish goaltender is not in his sophomore season with the Northern Michigan Wildcats. After making 25 appearances as a freshman with a goals against average (GAA) of 2.46, Tolvanen has played in four games so far this season and has a GAA of 2.41 and a save percentage (SV%) of .920. Prior to the season, he was also placed on the pre-season watch list for the Mike Richter Award, which is given to the most outstanding goaltender in NCAA Division I hockey.
Minnesota State-Mankato (WCHA)
The former Magicians forward has produced massive point totals at every level of play and collegiate hockey does not appear to be an exception. After registering 51 points in the USHL last season, Michaelis has a goal and five assists in only four games played so far in his freshman season at Mankato.
Army-West Point (AHC)
The forward from Fon Du Lac, Wisconsin is contributing to the Black Knight’s offense early in his freshman campaign, having already scored a game-winning goal and adding another assist in just three games played.
Canisius College (AHC)
The River Falls, Wisconsin native led the Magicians in scoring last season and he has continued to show a knack for picking up points as a freshman at Canisius. Through four games so far this season he has 2 assists.
