More awards for Michaelis, Mavericks

Marc Michaelis, Minnesota State's fantastic rookie forward, received more honors for his outstanding play in December, getting named the national rookie of the month by the Hockey Commissioners Association. The award is given to one of the rookies of the month from each of college hockey's six conferences (WCHA, NCHC, Big Ten, Hockey East, ECAC, Atlantic Hockey).

Down the hall from Michaelis and the MSU men's team, Minnesota State women's player Megan Hinze was named the WCHA's defensive player of the month for her December performance. The sophomore defenseman. She had the game-tying and game-winning goals in the Mavericks' 2-1 upset over third-ranked Minnesota Duluth on Dec. 10. She also blocked 13 shots in six games and was plus-1.
