Peterson grabs second straight Rookie of the Week award


By Avery Wenck, Sports Editor

Freshman forward Avery Peterson was named the Bauer NCHC Rookie of the Week for the second straight time this week, an award he is claiming for the third time.

He won the award in early November after a series with Ohio State and also after the series with Denver on Jan. 9-10.

In the series split with Colorado college, Peterson bagged three goals and an assist, including the game winner in the 4-1 win on Saturday. Peterson’s fine offensive form has been important for the Mavericks this season. Peterson has scored four goals and has four assists in the past five games and is now second in the team in goals. He also ranks third among all NCHC freshmen and fourth in the team in scoring.
