Ice Dogs' Taffe headed to Nebraska-Omaha

January 23, 2010

Nebraska-Omaha-bound Mike Taffe is tied for the league lead in wins among NAHL goaltenders (17).

The Fairbanks Ice Dogs have announced that goaltender Mike Taffe has committed to the University of Nebraska-Omaha (CCHA), which will join the WCHA next season.

In 24 appearances, Taffe, an 18-year-old from Maple Grove, Minn., is tied for the league-lead in wins (17) to compliment a 2.40 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage.

“This is a great opportunity for Mike and we couldn’t be happier for him and his family,” said Ice Dogs head coach Josh Hauge.  “Omaha is getting the complete package in Mike; he’s a great goaltender, a great teammate and a great person.”

Taffe is the third player from this year’s Ice Dogs team to commit to a Division I program, joining Michael Juola (Brown University) and Jared Linnell (University of Alaska-Fairbanks).
