Top Moments in Michigan Ice Hockey History

Top Moments in Michigan Ice Hockey History

Dec. 10, 2010

In honor of the Big Chill at the Big House outdoor game, we at MGoBlue.com decided to compile a list of the top 20 moments in U-M ice hockey history and let our fans vote for the 10 best.

The polls were open for nine days, during which nearly 1,100 fans cast their votes for the top moments.

The top five moments were announced at the Big Chill at the Big House on Saturday (Dec. 11). Complete results of the survey are available on this page, and video highlighting the top five moments will be available Monday (Dec. 13).

Thank you for participating in this interactive feature and Go Blue!
