Updates on former Force players

Mike Lee is the starting goaltender as a freshman for the St. Cloud State Huskies.  Lee has played in four games and has played very well.  He is 1-1-2 with a 92.6% save percentage and a 2.18 GAA.  Lee is expected to carry much of the load this year for SCSU and is a shoe in for Team USA at the upcoming 2010 IIHF World Junior Championships that former Force coach Dean Blais will be heading.

Luke Witkowski is playing defense for Western Michigan.  Luke has played in four games with the Broncos and has registered 5 shots with a -2 rating.  Western Michigan is currently 4-0 playing in the CCHA.

Keegan Flaherty is playing with the University of Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs.  Flaherty has played in seven games and has registered one assist as a freshman.  The Bulldogs are 4-2-1 on the young season.

According to this site, Oleg Lee was drafted in the 3rd round, 67th overall in the KHL draft by Atlant Mytischi.  I wasn't able to find anything else for Oleg Lee.

Jake Areshenko is playing for Bemidji State.  He has played in three games for the Beavers, but has yet to register anything statistically.

Former Fargo Force fan favorite, Andy Taranto, is playing for the University of Alaska-Fairbanks.  He has one goal, two assists for a total of three points in four games for the Nanooks.

Josh Birkholz is playing for the University of Minnesota.  He has played in three games only to register two penalty minutes.  Birkholz is one of four freshmen for the Golden Gophers.

Steve Spinell is playing for the University of Miami (Ohio) Redhawks.  The Redhawks are the top ranked team in college hockey right now and Spinell has seen action in two games registering two penalty minutes for the nation's number one team.
