Inside College Hockey named Michael Dorr as its national player of the week after his performance in the Mavericks' Shillelagh Tournament over the weekend.
Since transferring to Minnesota State and becoming eligible just over one calendar year ago, Dorr has played in 42 games for the Mavericks, compiling 12 goals and 19 assists for 31 points.
Meanwhile, the Mavericks must have turned some heads with their wins in suburban Chicago but it was still not enough to eke into the top 20. Perhaps it's because of their .500 record (8-8-4). Perhaps it's because teams like Quinnipiac (sweeping Nebraska-Omaha) and St. Cloud State (beating Miami in a Florida tournament) also pulled off upsets over the holidays. But MSU did get some votes --15 points to be exact -- enough to put them 26th in the country.
By the way, here is a home video of Dorr's game-winning goal from Saturday's game against Notre Dame. It came with 22.9 seconds left in regulation:
