UAH resumes WCHA play this weekend with a trip to Houghton, Michigan, to play the Huskies of Michigan Tech.

All-time series: The Chargers are have never beaten Michigan Tech in 10 meetings. In Houghton, UAH is 0-6, with the last time being the 2015 WCHA quarterfinals, which the Huskies won 3-0 (in triple overtime) and 1-0. Last season, Michigan Tech won 4-2 and 2-1 in Huntsville.

Charger recap: UAH (2-2-0 overall, 2-0-0 WCHA) had a disappointing series at Connecticut last week, getting shut out in both nights, 6-0 and 4-0. It was the Chargers’ first non-conference series of the season.

LEADING SCORERS: Max McHugh (4 GP, 2-0-2); Brennan Saulnier (3 GP, 1-1-2); Josh Kestner (4 GP, 0-2-2); Kurt Gosselin (4 GP, 0-2-2).

GOALTENDING: Matt Larose (4 GP, 3.55 GAA, .898 SV%); Jordan Uhelski (1 GP, 3.00 GAA, .889 SV%).

About the Huskies: Michigan Tech (0-4-0 overall, 0-2-0 WCHA) has had a tough start to the season, dropping a pair at No. 6 Minnesota Duluth two weeks ago, then getting swept at Minnesota State to start conference play. The Huskies have only scored four goals in four games. This weekend will be the Huskies’ first home games of the season.

Michigan Tech was picked to finish second in the WCHA preseason coaches’ and media polls. Matt Roy was named a preseason All-WCHA defenseman in both polls, while Tyler Heinonen was named a preseason All-WCHA forward in the media poll. Heinonen has one goal through four games this season.

At goaltender, Michigan Tech moves on without star Jamie Phillips. Sophomore Devin Kero (4.03 GAA, .873 SV%) and senior Matt Wintjes (4.64 GAA, .816 SV%) have had a rough go in the first two weeks.

Around the WCHA: Bemidji State and Northern Michigan square of in the other league series. Minnesota State hosts St. Cloud State in a battle of ranked teams.
