Gosselin nets another WCHA weekly award

Kurt Gosselin

UAH junior defenseman Kurt Gosselin was named the WCHA Defensive Player of the Week, the league announced Monday.

Gosselin had three points in UAH series split at then-No. 5 Michigan Tech. He had two assists in UAH’s 5-4 loss on Friday, and scored a power play goal in the Chargers’ 4-2 victory on Saturday. Defensively, Gosselin blocked six shots, one short of the WCHA leaders for the week.

It was the third time Gosselin got the award after winning it twice last season. It’s Gosselin’s fourth WCHA weekly award including his Rookie of the Week award in the 2015-16 season.

Three other Chargers were honorable mention in the WCHA’s weekly awards: Josh Kestner (goal and two assists) for Offensive Player of the Week (won by Alaska’s Colton Leiter); Jordan Uhelski (74 saves, 41 in the win) for Goaltender of the Week (won by Lake Superior State’s Nick Kossoff); and Christian Rajic (goal and two assists) for Rookie of the Week (won by Alaska’s Steven Jandric).
