When George Gwozdecky joined the University of Denver Pioneers in 1994, the team hadn’t cracked 20 wins in five seasons. While the organization was gaining momentum, it wasn’t far removed from back-to-back campaigns with just six and nine wins respectively. Over the course of the next 19 years, Gwozdecky managed to turn the Pioneers into a powerhouse school in the NCAA and a force to be reckoned with in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association.
From the Pioneers:
