The Cougars are optimistic that they will be a challenge to the Utes, especially after showing off the success of their systems against Boise State.

“It’ll be a good test and good place to see how we ended out the season,” goaltender Dalton Spice said. “We need to play a little more systems and do a little more passing.”

“Systems” in hockey refer to in-game organization and awareness, according to Spice, who grew up playing with members of the opposing team.

“A lot of those guys wanted me to go play with them, but I felt like BYU was the better option,” Spice said. “I think it’s going to be a pretty good game.”

The Cougars face the Utes on Saturday at 7:30 p.m. in the Seven Peaks Ice Arena.
