St. Cloud State made another trip to the Frozen Faceoff.

Ryan Stieg recaps the 2023-24 season for the St. Cloud State Huskies men’s hockey team.

This story was originally published in the April 2024 Year In Review College/Frozen Four digital issue.

Ryan started to enjoy hockey as a kid when he started playing roller hockey with his friends in their respective driveways. However, his enthusiasm started to grow more when the Minnesota Wild had their inaugural season in 2000 and fully blossomed when he was at the University of North Dakota and he started attending Fighting Sioux (now Fighting Hawks) games on a regular basis. He's a former sports writer for three previous newspapers, most recently with the Mining Journal in Marquette, Michigan, where he covered Northern Michigan hockey for seven years. He currently does freelance work as a sports reporter, operates his own hockey blog,, and is on a college hockey podcast called MNCAA. He also continues to watch and follow the Wild, Minnesota Twins, Minnesota Vikings and college hockey. You can follow him on Twitter/X @ryanstieg.
