Tyler Groat’s October is one hockey players would be jealous of.

The University of Michigan-Dearborn freshman forward scored an incredible 17 points and four hat tricks in six games last month, earning ACHA Player of the Month honors.

“I don’t look at it as one individual having success, I look at it as our team having success,” Haltinner said on the Michigan Journal Sports Podcast. “It’s great that (Groat) did that. I’m happy for him and we’re happy as an organization that he did get Player of the Month from the ACHA. But that comes with your team behind it, because you’re only as good as your team.”

Entering last weekend’s games, Groat’s 18 goals were tied for the ACHA lead.
