Guptil seriously has hit a wall.

Looked into it and found this article:

But when the team bus left Ann Arbor, its leading returning scorer wasn’t on it.

Coach Red Berenson said Tuesday that he left Alex Guptill home from last weekend’s road series due to the sophomore forward’s work ethic, attitude and practice habits in recent weeks.

“He’s too good a player to keep going the way he’s going, particularly his work ethic and his practice habits,” Berenson said. “It was showing up in games.”

“I put him in our top four players, and he’s playing like he’s in our bottom four, so it’s pretty evident,” Berenson said. “He knew it and we knew it and we had to do something about it.”
Also, this was in the notes for the 12/14 postgamegame:

Alex Guptill returned to the lineup, after being a healthy scratch in Michigan's last series, and led the team with five shots on goal.
