Charger forward Christian Rajic was named the WCHA Rookie of the Week for his three-goal performance in UAH’s 5-3 win over Lake Superior State on Saturday.

Rajic’s hat trick was the first by a UAH freshman since Jared Ross did it against Bemidji State on March 9, 2002. The Oakville, Ontario native is one of four freshmen to have hat tricks in Division I this season.

Rajic has six goals on the season, tying him for second on the Chargers and sixth in the WCHA. His total of nine points puts him fifth among WCHA freshmen.

In conference games only, Rajic is tied for ninth in scoring with eight points and tied for third in goals with five.

“Blackout” coming Friday: Friday’s series opener at the Von Braun Center against Ferris State will be a “Black Friday Blackout.”

Charger fans are encouraged to wear black at the game. The first 500 fans will receive a free black UAH hockey T-shirt and the next set of UAH hockey trading cards, courtesy of Wells Fargo.

Puck drop for both Friday and Saturday night is 7:07 p.m. Kids 12 and under get free admission to both games, and all home games this season, courtesy of Huntsville International Airport.
