20 Questions With Matt Hunwick

After practice on Tuesday, GoBlueWolverine Magazine caught up with Matt Hunwick, an alternate captain on the Wolverines hockey team. Hunwick took his turn participating in GBW's version of 20 questions.

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. And, so far this season, he has done an excellent job. GoBlueWolverine Magazine pulled Matt aside for a quick game of 20 questions after practice on Tuesday.
