Brickley named Defensive Player of the Week

For the fourth time this season, Minnesota State's Daniel Brickley was named WCHA Defensive Player of the Week, this time for his four-point weekend in the Mavericks' sweep at Alaska Anchorage.

The junior defenseman had a goal and three assists in the series, along with 10 shots on goal, and was a plus-3. He had two assists in Friday's 5-2 win and the game-winning goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-1 victory.

Other WCHA awards this week went to: Bemidji State senior forward Kyle Bauman (offensive), BSU senior goalie Michael Bitzer (defensive) and Bowling Green freshman forward Connor Ford (rookie). Read more about them here.
