Yost After Hours: Michigan women’s hockey by David Malinowski
Entering Yost Ice Arena with the women’s hockey team on the ice is like walking into an office after hours. It’s one of the most historic college rinks in the country, but the lights are half-dimmed and the building is cold. The muffled sounds of skates and pucks fill the air.
Signs colored in with crosshatched sharpie and the names and numbers of players don one half of the boards. A banner hangs by two ropes from the boards, proudly displaying that the Wolverines are on the ice. The large, four-faced scoreboard remains dark. Winged helmets move about the ice, but the wings are in yellow tape on store-bought navy helmets.
This is not the perennial championship-contending men’s team coached by Red Berenson. This is Michigan women’s hockey. This is a team where reality hits its players square in the face with every drop of sweat.
If you’re curious about the lack of D-1 women’s college hockey in Michigan, this is a great read about their club hockey team.
