NMU’s de Mey, Ghantous named WCHA players of week


By @MichaelCaples –

It wasn’t the weekend outing they wanted, but two members of the Wildcats still appear on the WCHA players of the week list.

Vincent de Mey has once again been named the conference’s forward of the week, while Andre Ghantous has been named the rookie of the week after the Wildcats tied and lost to St. Cloud State over the weekend.

de Mey, a Los Angeles native and sophomore forward, factored into all three of the Wildcats’ goals on Friday as Northern Michigan clawed back to force a 3-3 tie. He also added an assist in Saturday’s 5-4 loss.

Ghantous, a Glendale, Calif., native, scored a pair of power-play goals in the OT tie, and he scored again on Saturday. He has a six-game point streak (six goals, one assist) to start his NCAA career in impressive fashion.
