Gotovets’ Game Still Evolving

As Kirill Gotovets describes his style, he makes it clear that defense comes first. Despite recording 15 points over his first two seasons at Cornell University, the defenseman isn’t worried about not finding his name on the scoresheet during the first nine games of his junior year. His game still evolving, Gotovets knows stats aren’t everything. “I think I still play the same style, just a little bit unlucky with the points,” he said. “I don’t think it matters how many points I get, I just worry about how I play and how the team plays.”

Jimmy Mullin had his first multi-point game of the year with a goal and an assist in Miami’s second win in as many nights over the Nanooks. Mullin’s assist came when he fed a teammate from behind the net and another teammate banged in that rebound. His goal came on a breakaway in which he went 5-hole on the Alaska-Fairbanks goaltender. Miami freshman goalie Ryan McKay had the shutout for the RedHawks. McKay is the former goaltending partner of Lightning prospect Adam Wilcox. The two were together in USHL Green Bay before the Gamblers decided to keep McKay and trade Wilcox.
