Minnesota State freshman goaltender Cole Huggins was named WCHA defensive player player of the week for his performance in the Mavericks' sweep of Lake Superior State last weekend.
Huggins had 14-save shutout on Friday (the fourth shutout of the season for the freshman) and stopped 27 of 30 shots, allowing one even-strength goal, on Saturday for a weekend save percentage of .932.
Huggins improved his record to 16-7-0. He leads the WCHA in goals-against average for both overall games (2.08) and league games (1.86).
Other WCHA players of the week were Alaska forward Colton Beck (offensive) and Alabama Huntsville goaltender Matt Larose (rookie).
