Now in his junior year, defenseman Matt Hunwick is facing heightened expectations as the Wolverines take aim for their 10th national title. With goalie Al Montoya making the decision to forgo his senior year this past summer, it became Hunwick expected to lead the defense by example on a team littered by Freshman.
