Brad Elliot Schlossman, University of North Dakota Hockey --- UND defenseman Andrew MacWilliam has had surgery on his shoulder.Speaks to the type of hockey player that the UND Fighting Sioux coaching staff recruit – this past season there were an incredible amount of games lost to injury – but the Fighting Sioux where still able to qualify for the NCAA Tourney and secure a number one seed. I had heard that one of the Fighting Sioux defenseman had played the Minnesota series with a separated shoulder.
MacWilliam played about the last two months of the season with an ongoing dislocated shoulder issue, according to a source.
The senior-to-be is expected to be one of UND’s top players next season and a candidate to be one of the captains. At this point, it is unclear whether MacWilliam will be able to play in the season opener, but it is possible.
