One thought on “WCHA Goals: Lowest Yet

  1. 8/10 teams are in the 15 best teams in the NCAA. That is such an incredible stat I can’t even begin to wrap my head around it! The way things are looking that should still lead to 7 teams getting an NCAA bid with either UM or UW getting bumped by a terrible auto-bid team.

    Hard to see less than six WCHA teams making the tourney when the season is all said and done.
