The WCHA honored Luke Beaverson this week by naming him as Co-Defensive Player of the Week for Oct. 17-22. Luke had a goal and an assist for the Seawolves vs. Merrimack and was a +3 for the weekend.
I hope this is the first of many such weekly awards this year for the Seawolves on which I get to comment. Luke has steadily developed into a mature WCHA defenseman that can contribute huge positives on both ends and is surprising effective transitioning up the ice. I doubt this is the last award this season for Luke. If he plays the way he is capable of playing and has another injury free year I'd think we'll see his name somewhere on an All-Conference list. Congrulations to Luke. Well done. Now go make the Carlson Center your sheet!
