Alex Klassen’s first regular season game in the MCAC didn’t go according to plan, as his CMU Blazers were shutout by the defending champions, the Providence Pilots. But successful teams – and successful players – know how to bounce back, and that’s exactly what Klassen and the Blazers did in Week Two.
Leading his team with one of the three goals scored in the game, the first-year defender made his presence felt in the MCAC by helping his team shutout Assiniboine Community College. Klassen’s shut-down ability as a defender was key in CMU’s first win of the season, and the Blazers are looking forward to what the rookie’s well-rounded skill set can bring to the club.
With four teams already chalking up wins this season, the league looks as competitive as ever. To keep up with the pace, it will take impressive outings from younger players like Klassen if CMU wants to stay on top of the standings this season.
