Center Chad Rau was named offensive player of the week by the WCHA for the second week in a row. Rau earned his first collegiate hat-trick Friday against Denver, which included his league-best fourth game-winning goal of the season. The Tigers’ top scorer, Rau ranks third in the conference in overall scoring with 15 points (9 goals and 6 assists).
Freshman goaltender Richard Bachman picked up rookie of the week honors for the second time this season, his third overall honor from the WCHA. Bachman, who lost his first WCHA game Saturday, stopped 52 of 56 shots in the series. Bachman’s 8-2 overall record leads WCHA goaltenders.
