by Andy Bourdeau / MTU beat writer

Michigan Tech swept the Minnesota-Mankato Mavericks to open their WCHA schedule. Tech put up nine goals and gave up just one, as the offense of the Huskies showed signs of a healthy offense.

Michael Lee Teslak (pictured left) blanked the Mavericks Friday, stopping all 23 shots he faced. Alex Lord and Jimmy Kerr were the goal scorers for MTU.

Saturday, it was Robbie Nolan's (pictured right) turn. He nearly repeated Teslak's shutout, saving 35 of 36 shots. The Mavericks goal came at the two-minute mark in the third period.

MTU's Malcolm Gwilliam set the pace for the Huskies, producing five points on the night (2-3). Also netting goals in the 7-1 game were freshman Jordan Baker, Ryan Angelow, Peter Rouleau, freshman Eric Kattelus and Justin St. Louis.

MTU moves onto this weekend where they will play host to the No. 1 team in the nation, North Dakota.
