Tanner Sorenson

Anchorage winger Tanner Sorenson of Anchorage came to Michigan State with great expectations, being just the third player in the last 20 years to play high school hockey in the season prior to enrolling at the school.

He put up modest numbers last year, but this was a different story.

And Sorenson was a different player.

The sophomore was awarded the team’s Most Improved Player Award recently after 13-point increase, the largest rise in production for any player from the previous season.

Sorenson, of Alaska All-Stars fame, finished with 13-8—21 totals, up from his 2-6—8 totals as a freshman.

He ranked second on the team in both goals and points, with four goals coming on the power play; two were game winners.
