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.

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).
