This week’s guest comes from our favorite Canadian province and is fluent in French, Zed is Z in the French alphabet.

An Edmonton native, Bulldogs sophomore Tanner Laderoute played four years in the AJHL and was verbally committed to Alaska Anchorage before coming to UMD where he’s been a timely offensive threat thus far.

He takes us through his game-winning goal, as called by Zach, on Saturday, Feb. 8 in the 4-1 win over Nebraska-Omaha at Amsoil Arena.

Laderoute shares his backstory, how UMD assistant coach Adam Krause became his favorite Bulldog of all time, and how to correctly pronounce his last name, of which Matt tries at the end.
