No. 4 Miami RedHawks 4@ Alaska-Fairbanks Nanooks 0
F Jimmy Mullin , MIA: 1-1-2, +2, 2 PIM, 4 SOG
Season totals: 12 GP, 2-4-6, -1, 6 PIM
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.
