ST. CLOUD, Minn. — Defensemen Tim Conboy and T.J. McElroy and forwards Billy Hengen and Joe Jensen were all part of the 2002 recruiting class for the St. Cloud State men's hockey team. The Huskies made the playoffs when they were freshmen and all but Conboy, who left after his sophomore season, played for Craig Dahl and then the first season under Bob Motzko as head coach.

The players get together here to share stories about their college careers.
