Michigan Tech ends tour

Michigan Tech is returning from a five-game trip to Europe. The Huskies ended with a loss Wednesday. The Huskies are in Duluth on Nov. 12-13 this season. Here’s a release from the school’s sports information office:

KLAGENFURT, Germany – After playing five games in six days and playing without three skaters Michigan Tech ran out of gas as Klagenfurt posted a 7-2 win Aug. 18. The Huskies finished their European Tour with a 2-3 record.

The Dragons jumped onto the scoreboard with an even strength goal two minutes into the game and added another midway through the opening period.

The Huskies enjoyed a few chances of their own with Brett Olson accounting for two break away chances.

Klagenfurt would add three more goals in the second period before Tech notched their first. Olson busted up the Dragon shut out when he tipped in a pass coming across the face of the goal. Bryce Reddick and MilosGordic assisted on the goal.

The third period opened with a power play goal by Klagenfurt but Tech would answer with one of their own. Steven Seigo fired a shot on net that was tipped past the Dragon netminder by Evan Witt. Tommy Brown also assisted on the goal.

Klagenfurt added one more goal to skate to the 7-2 win.

The Dragons out shot the Huskies 40-34 in the game.

Kevin Genoe gave up all seven goals before being replaced by Corson Cramer.

Tech will open up the 2010-11 season with an exhibition game against Nipissing on Oct. 2.
