On a Friday morning two days before official move in for freshmen, a group of alumni gathered in a familiar spot on MSU’s campus. They weren’t saying goodbye to MSU or even reminiscing about their former glories. Instead this group was partaking in an annual ritual. Skating around the ice, in the cold confines of Munn Ice Arena were the Spartan Hockey alumni.
Sam Saliba, a native of Lake Forest, Illinois, committed to the Spartans this past weekend. The 20-year-old forward posted 16 goals and 17 assists in his second USHL season. Roughly half of those points came as a member of the Sioux City Musketeers, the other half after he was traded to the Green Bay Gamblers.
