Many of us in WCHA territory are familiar with the diminutive Genoway, who played for parts of five seasons for the beloved/loathed/whatever University of North Dakota Figh.... UND. Despite his size, Genoway used his explosive skating ability and high end hockey sense to contribute from the blueline, which in the end earned him an entry-level deal with The Wild, although because of his age, it was only a one year deal.

Last season Genoway played in 72 games for the Minnesota Wild's top farm club the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League, scoring 7 goals and 29 assists for 36 points.

In case anyone is keeping track, Genoway outscored the Minnesota Wild’s top draft choice defenseman Tyler Cuma (0g-9a—9pts).
