At 13-9-3, it's a program on the rise thanks to newfound confidence
ANCHORAGE – In his first season as head coach at the University of Alaska Anchorage, Matt Thomas has changed the culture of Seawolf hockey.
“They talk about, you know, winning’s a habit, losing’s a habit, you know, it’s all habit-based, really,” Thomas said. “For us, it was important to get the mindset across that we could be a good team, but you had to learn how to be that good team.”
At 13-9-3, it’s a program on the rise thanks to newfound confidence. Senior forward Jordan Kwas said the mindset has changed dramatically from years past. Now, there’s a new challenge: tempering the excitement.
Kwas said the team is taking to road to the the playoffs one step at a time.
“That’s how you’re going to chip away at it,” he said.
The Seawolves will face Northern Michigan Friday and Saturday evenings at the Sullivan Arena.
