Aaron Schmit and Troy Grosenick faced each other at the 2012 NCAA Frozen Four and were again on the same ice at the Chicago Blackhawks Prospects Camp.
It was a bit of a homecoming at camp for Schmit who played the 2007-08 season with the Chicago Steel under head coach Steve Poapst. He recently completed a four-year career at Ferris State University and looks forward to the next steps in his career.
