The Michigan Wolverines have had an incredible year. They've won the CFP Championship, they have a new men's basketball coach and now have Brendan Brisson's emergence to hang their hats on. How so?

The center made the most of his 15 games this season, scoring two goals and six assists while averaging 12:20 TOI/G. Brisson even got some action on the top line for the Vegas Golden Knights this season. With the young native of Manhattan Beach, California, showing his worth, he should factor into the Golden Knights's future.
