Mavericks junior forward Jean-Paul LaFontaine netted this week's WCHA Offensive Player of the Week award for his five-point weekend in a series sweep of Alaska Anchorage last weekend. LaFontaine had three goals and two assists in the two games, including a two-goal, one-assist effort on Saturday.
LaFontaine leads the Mavericks in scoring with 11 points (6-5) through 14 games, with seven of his points coming over the last four games.
Other WCHA players of the week were Ferris State goaltender C.J. Motte (defensive) and Michigan Tech defenseman Shane Hanna (rookie).
