Kyle Postler has recorded 63 points and he leads the team with 35 assists. Jake Arthur leads all Griffins with 42 goals scored and he has taken a team-best 101 shots.

Erik Gronseth has a 7-1 record this season with a .616 save percentage. The freshman has made a team-best 85 saves while allowing 53 goals with a 6.71 goals-against-average.
