National championship.

That’s the vision. That’s the goal. That’s what MSU Men’s Club Hockey competes for. It’s what kinesiology junior Mike Albosta competes for.

“We need to be working hard day in and day out,” Albosta said. “It’s not kind of a when-you-have-time sort of thing. We’re skating five, six days a week.”

For Albosta, hockey has been with him since he was 5 years old. When he graduated high school, he didn’t want his hockey career to end, so he tried out for Club Hockey and made the team.

Skates scraped across the ice as words of encouragement and a slew of expletives blasted from the team bench.

“Let’s go!”

“Hit him!”

“Shoot it!”

The boys get into it. They’re teammates, friends and for Albosta, these people are brothers.

“It’s unlike any team I’ve played for before,” Albosta said. “Being here, everybody has this sense of brotherhood.”
