Mueller x 2: Omaha’s Junior Forward Nets Two NCHC “Plays of the Week”

UNO Hockey junior forward Ty Mueller is featured in two plays in the NCHC Top 5 Plays of the Week – Nov. 21, 2023.  

Mueller’s goal during the first period of the Nov. 17 game is the top play of the week. The goal found Mueller streaking in from the neutral zone, dekeing DU defenseman Cale Ashcroft, and putting the puck past goaltender Freddie Halyk (who played with Mueller on the 2017-18 Airdrie Xtreme U15 AAA team in Alberta — both players are from Cochrane, AB). 

The Mavs lost the Friday contest 8-4.

Mueller’s even-strength goal in the second period of the Nov. 18/19 game (postponed after the first period on Saturday due to an issue with the ice at Magness Arena) is the #5 play of the week (the goal was set up by a pretty “through the legs” pass by grad student Jesse Lansdell).

The goal helped Omaha to a 4-3 victory in the game and a split in the two-game series.

Mueller had 2 goals and 1 assist during the weekend series at Denver. He has 5 goals and 5 assists this season. He currently ranks first on the team in points. 

He is the sixth player in program history to record a goal in five consecutive games — Jeff Hoggan (2001-02), Scott Parse (2005-06), Brandon Scero (2005-06), Ryan Walters (twice during the 2012-13 season), and Josh Archibald (2013-14).

As a result, he occupies rarefied air with some of UNO Hockey’s top Hobey Baker candidates from the past 26 years.
