The new kid from Calgary on the Big Ten’s oldest team has had an immediate impact. Aiden Fink is averaging a point per game for Penn State and has thrived on the power play for a Nittany Lions team that is in the hunt for home ice.
Before he hopped on a plane for his first games at Minnesota, Fink joined Mick Hatten and Jess Myers to talk about his adjustment to the game, his potential future in Nashville and how a western Canada kid makes it all the way to Hockey Valley.
Also ahead are Wisconsin trying to re-claim first place with inconsistent Notre Dame visiting, Michigan and Michigan State dueling in Detroit, and one guy’s opinion on the future of NCAA regional play.
