Keseley closed the season ranking as the nation’s top scoring defenseman, averaging 1.58 points per game on one of the nation’s best scoring offenses (4.46 goals/game). Keseley also finished the season second in the MIAC behind Augsburg’s Aaron Johnson (13g, 35a) in scoring.
Hosfield finished second on the team with 36 points on a team-high 19 goals and 17 assists. Hosfield scored in 18 of 26 games, scoring a team-high 11 power play goals. Hosfield hit his stride during the conference season, scoring 27 of his 41 points during MIAC play, trailing only Johnson’s 31 points in league play. His 13 goals in league play trailed only Augsburg’s Critter Nagurski (14). Hosfield’s 11 power play goals during the season edged out teammate Loren Havemeier (10) for the top spot.
