By @MichaelCaples –

Almost 50 former Michigan Wolverines hockey players will return to Yost Ice Arena later this week to take part in the team’s annual Alumni Game.

This year, there will be a pair of contests – one for the under-35 crowd and one for the over-35 crowd – at Yost on Friday, Aug. 29, starting at 5:30 p.m.

Wolverines alums over the age of 35 will kick things off, playing a 50-minute game before the alums under the age of 35 take part in their own 50-minute contest, which will tentatively start at 6:30 p.m.
