While Saturday’s 10-4 loss at Michigan Tech was bleak, there were a couple of bright spots. The Chargers were able to get a four-spot again, and typically — if not on that night — that means a much greater chance of victory.

One player who had a hand in all four tallies was Jack Prince. His two-goal, two-assist performance was the best UAH has had in over three years.

The last Charger to have a four-point night was Jamie Easton, who had four assists in UAH’s 4-3 win over Bemidji State on January 8, 2011 at the Von Braun Center.

Prince’s first goal of the game, and second point of the night, made the WCHA Plays of the Week:

The Leicester, England native is now second on the team with nine points this season. He is tied with Chad Brears for the team lead in goals with five.

Around the WCHA: The teams at the top of the table took care of business. Ferris State swept a home series against Northern Michigan, and Minnesota State took two at home against Bemidji State. The Bulldogs maintain a two-point lead in first place, and are tied for fourth in the latest USCHO.com poll.

Michigan Tech boosted up to third with its sweep of UAH and five wins in its last six games. Huskies forward Blake Pietila was named the WCHA’s Offensive Player of the Week for his six-point weekend against the Chargers.

Alaska-Anchorage moved into a tie for fourth with idle Bowling Green after splitting at Lake Superior State.
