Michigan Goalie Turco Breaks Collegiate Win Mark

With Michigan’s 4-2 victory Friday night over Bowling Green, Wolverine netminder Marty Turco earned his 112th career win, topping the record of 111 previously held by Steve Shields, Turco’s predecessor at Michigan.

Turco, in his senior year with the Wolverines, was honored with a plaque commemorating his achievement after stopping 14 shots on the evening. Said Turco, “[The record] wasn’t a dream come true, but it was self-gratifying. It’s more a reflection on the program.

“I never wanted the focus on me and now that it is done with, the focus can go back on the team.”

Sixth-ranked Michigan is 17-4-1 on the season and stands at 12-2-1 in-conference, atop the CCHA.
