Carl Hagelin Wins Michigan Clutch Performance of Year is honoring the best of the best in University of Michigan Athletics for the past year and today Carl Hagelin was announced as the winner of the winner for clutch performance of the year for his tremendous performance on senior night.  During his final regular-season home game, Hagelin found his team down 4-3 with under a minute to go against Western Michigan before he took the game over.  He would tie the game with just 39.1 seconds left in regulation and then score the game winner with a mere 2.9 seconds left in overtime.

That kind of clutch play and leadership is what a captain is supposed to do when his team is against the wall.  It is also why this morning there was a look at whether he could be another impact rookie for the Rangers this season.
