Michigan Tech sweeps WCHA player of the week awards


By @StefanKubus – 

A weekend series sweep against Robert Morris was apparently just the beginning.

The WCHA announced Monday that the Huskies have swept the weekly league player of the week honors.

Sophomore Alec Broeztman was the top forward of the week after recording a NCAA-leading six points on four goals and two helpers. That included a shorthanded overtime game-winning goal on Saturday before a first-period hat trick on Sunday.

On the back end, junior Seamus Donohue potted a pair of power-play assists and blocked a NCAA-high eight shots in the two wins.

And between the pipes, senior Matt Jurusik stopped 59 of 60 shots he saw from the Colonials–that included a 25-save shutout on Sunday–for a sparkling 0.48 goals-against average (ranked second nationally) and .983 save percentage.

Meanwhile, a newcomer up front made an immediate impact in the Huskies’ lineup as freshman Parker Saretsky picked up his first four collegiate points, a goal and three assists. The Alberta native was also a plus-three on the weekend, a NCAA-best among all freshmen.
