The University of Wisconsin–Stout men’s hockey team is proud to have both Justin Moody (Fr, Grand Forks, N.D.) and captain Jordan Tredinnick (Sr, Onalaska, Wis.) be selected to the WIAC All-Conference honorable mention hockey team.
Tredinnick is a versatile player playing both forward and defense each game. Tredinnick’s strengths include his vision and ability to make the smart play at the right time. He has been selected to the WIAC All-Conference team all of his four years at Stout.
“I feel honored. This conference is always one of the better hockey conferences in the nation and to be given an award like this means a lot to me,” stated Tredinnick. “You can’t achieve this award without good teammates, and that’s what I have had here at Stout the last four years.”
Moody is a smart hockey player who is usually playing left winger. He takes pride in his work ethic and is very coachable. Moody was voted the second funniest player by the team and was selected as the assistant captain at the beginning of the season.
“Being selected to the WIAC all-conference honorable mention team is a nice pat on the back,” Moody said. “I feel like we left a lot out there this year though, and I am looking forward to us doing a lot more next year.”
Tredinnick’s favorite part of the game is the competition and teamwork that hockey revolves around.
“I like the competition in games and practice. I also enjoy working with a team to achieve common goals, and with this you make incredible friends,” said Tredinnick, who is a real estate and property management major.
Moody—who is a business major—enjoys the people he has met through the game.
“My favorite part of playing hockey is the people you meet through the game. All my teammates are like brothers; sometimes you want to fight them, but they are all lovable in one way or another,” said Moody. “Another one of my favorite parts about hockey is that it’s one of the only things that can take my mind off everything else.”
