Defenseman Krug makes Union hockey debut tonight
Union freshman defenseman Matt Krug will make his collegiate debut tonight when the 16th-ranked Dutchmen host Lake Superior State at 7 at Messa Rink.
The 6-foot, 198-pound Krug spent the last two seasons with the U.S. Hockey League's Indiana Ice. He had five goals and 17 assists in 108 career games.
