After excellent performances in UAH’s sweep of Alaska Anchorage, seniors Hans Gorowsky and Kurt Gosselin were named WCHA players of the week by the league on Monday.
Gorowsky (Lino Lakes, Minn.) earned WCHA Forward of the Week honors after scoring four goals, two in each game, against the Seawolves to lead the conference and tie for first in all of Division I. He added an assist for a total of five points, and won 26 faceoffs over the weekend.
Gorowsky now leads the Chargers in goals (7) and points (12) this season. It is Gorowsky’s first WCHA weekly award.
Gosselin (Brighton, Mich.) took the WCHA Defenseman of the Week award after scoring six points on three goals and three assists. He also had a +5 rating in the series, ranking him second in Division I for the week. Gosselin had the game-winning goal each night.
Gosselin has the UAH lead in assists with eight. His three goals were the first of the season for him. He’s now second on the team with 11 points in just 13 games played this season, which he has missed half of due to injury.
This is the fourth time Gosselin has won the WCHA Defenseman of the Week award.
The Chargers beat Alaska Anchorage 6-2 and 6-3 for their first sweep of the season. UAH, winners of three straight home games, hosts Alaska at the Von Braun Center this Friday and Saturday at 7 p.m. both nights.
