Hayes, Blueger earn honors

Two Minnesota State players instrumental in their team’s series sweep at Minnesota Duluth last weekend earned Western Collegiate Hockey Association awards on Tuesday.

Senior forward Eriah Hayes was named Offensive Player of the Week, and freshman center Teddy Blueger was named Rookie of the Week.

Hayes had a four-goal, three-assist weekend, including a hat trick and an assist on Saturday. Blueger had four points in the 4-2 and 5-1 wins, including both game-winning goals.

Hayes ranks second on the Mavericks in scoring with 28 points. His 16 goals are a team high, and his 10 power-play goals lead the nation. Blueger is MSU’s top-scoring freshman; he now has 17 points.

Minnesota State is now ranked ninth in the nation and will host Michigan Tech on Friday and Saturday.

North Dakota freshman goalie Zane Gothberg was the WCHA’s Defensive Player of the Week.
