Atlantic Hockey 

Atlantic Hockey Player of the Week: Garrett Dahm, Mercyhurst (Austin Bruins) - Dahm led Atlantic Hockey in scoring for the week with five points on two goals and three assists. The Swansea, Ill., native scored twice on the power-play and added three assists during the Lakers’ three games against Niagara. The junior also fired 10 shots on goal and won 23 faceoffs. This is his first career Atlantic Hockey weekly award.

Atlantic Hockey Goaltender of the Week: Connor Hasley, Bentley (Odessa Jackalopes) - Hasley backstopped the Falcons to a 1-0-1 record on the weekend. The North Tonawanda, N.Y., native made 30 saves in a 5-1 victory at Holy Cross and 22 saves in 65 minutes in a 2-2 tie with Sacred Heart before making two saves in the shootout. Hasley finished the weekend with a .945 save percentage and a 1.44 goals-against average that tied for the weekend lead. This is his second career Atlantic Hockey weekly award.

Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week: Nils Wallstrom, AIC (Kenai River Brown Bears) - Wallstrom closed out his rookie regular season with a pair of strong showings against Army West Point on the road. The Skelleftea, Sweden held the Black Knights to three goals in two games, stopping 62-of-65 shots in the series. He made three stops in overtime to preserve the tie on Friday before holding Army off the board for more than 55 minutes in Saturday’s win. Wallstrom finished the weekend with a .954 save percentage and a 1.44 goals-against average that shared the Atlantic Hockey weekend lead. This is his second career Atlantic Hockey weekly honor.


Big Ten

B1G 1st Star: Jake Barczewski, Michigan (Janesville Jets) - Barczewski helped Michigan to a weekend sweep of Notre Dame, recording a 0.50 goals-against average and .980 save percentage in the two games. He recorded his 2nd shutout of the season on Friday night and followed that up with a 28-save performance in Saturday’s 2-1 win. This is his 4th weekly honor of the season. 

B1G 2nd Star: Kyle McClellan, Wisconsin (Austin Bruins) - McClellan led the Badgers past Penn State in consecutive nights to keep their Big Ten title hopes alive. On Friday he recorded his 7th shutout of the season and finished the series with a 0.98 goals-against average and .970 save percentage. This is his 5th weekly honor of the season. 



CCHA Defenseman of the Week: Kyle Looft, Bemidji State (Austin Bruins) - Looft led all conference blueliners with three points last week, scoring a goal and assisting on two more, as Bemidji State took 5-of-6 points at St. Thomas to grow their lead in the standings. On Friday, he recorded two assists, including one on the overtime-winning goal and notched a game-high four blocked shots in a 6-5 victory. He then scored the opening goal in the Beavers’ 3-1 win on Saturday. For the weekend, he totaled seven shots on goal.



ECAC Goaltender of the Week: Arthur Smith, Princeton (Lone Star Brahmas) - Smith clinches goaltender of the week honors with an outstanding performance in the crease, leading the Tigers to a flawless 2-0-0 weekend on the road at Yale and Brown.

In Saturday’s finale, the Swede stopped all 19 shots he faced in a 3-0 win for his first career shutout. That earned him Second Star of the Game. A night earlier in the series opener, Posch racked up 30 saves in a 4-3 overtime loss, the third time this season he’s reached the 30-save plateau.
