No one would ever question the effort that Rutger McGroarty brings to the rink every day. It is easy to see that the Nebraska native gives 110% both on and off the ice, earning him team captain honors for the 2021-22 season.

With 33 points (16g, 17a) on the season, McGroarty is fired up with his sights set on the U18 World Championships before heading to the University of Michigan in the Fall.
