WCHA Offensive POTW: Josh Lunden

More recognition came today for Josh Lunden. The WCHA announced in this release that Josh was their Red Baron WCHA Offensive Player of the Week. His three goals and two assists and Most Outstanding Player award in the Nye Frontier Tournament this past weekend was enough to win the award over five other fellow nominees: Ruegsegger (DU), Shelast (MTU), Okposo (UMTC), Sharp (UMD) and Duncan (UND).

The three goals puts him a little more than a quarter of the way toward matching his total goal output during his freshman campaign in a Seawolf sweater. I thought it was interesting that every account of Josh's game tying goal against BU noted that he "buried" the puck. I guess there wasn't a more perfect word for it. It was exactly the sort of finish that we've come to expect from Josh. The pass from Kevin Clark was a thing of beauty without a doubt, but Josh banged it home with flair.

On KTUU's early report Dave Shyiak spoke briefly about the Seawolves depth and indicated that he thought "everybody could be playing" and while that "made his job more difficult" it was a good thing. Look on KTUU's website later for the archived version of the 6pm report which I imagine will be a little more in-depth.

He's cute!

You are so hating me right now, but I had to say it.
