Three Chargers get POTW honors

For the first time, three Chargers earned WCHA Player of the Week awards in the same week. The honors were announced by the conference on Monday.

UAH had some notable individual contributions despite two losses at Robert Morris over the weekend.

Tyr Thompson (Sherwood Park, Alberta) won the WCHA Forward of the Week award with two goals and an assist. The junior scored a goal in each game, and assisted in UAH’s first goal on Sunday. Thompson’s second-period goal on Sunday had put the Chargers up 3-2.

Dayne Finnson (Arborg, Manitoba) won the WCHA Defenseman of the Week award. The junior scored on the power play on Sunday, putting the Chargers up 2-1, and assisted on UAH’s first goal on Saturday. He also blocked three shots.

Tyrone Bronte (Melbourne, Australia) won the WCHA Rookie of the Week award. The freshman had three assists, one on Saturday and two on Sunday in his first two college games.

It was the first conference player of the week award for all three. Last season, UAH garnered only one player of the week award.

Mareks Mitens of Lake Superior State was the WCHA Goaltender of the Week.

The Chargers’ next action includes three games in four days on the road in non-conference games against WCHA foes. They play at Ferris State on Friday, December 4, and at Lake Superior State on Saturday and Sunday, December 6 and 7.
