Paul Crowder's 3rd period natural hat trick (for the "cycle"... power-play goal, short-handed goal and one at even strength) in Saturday's 5-3 win over Minnesota-Duluth earned him a share of the Red Baron WCHA Offensive Player of the Week award. This weekend saw an interesting turn for both Paul and his brother Tim. Both had been experiencing a bit of a lull in goal scoring prior to the weekend. Paul had one goal on the season and Tim had two. After the weekend Paul has 4 goals and Tim has 6 thanks to his 2 goal output for Michigan State on both Friday and Saturday night. I'm reminded of the metaphor of the "blue moon", this past weekend there must've been a "Crowder moon". This is the 4th WCHA POTW award for the Seawolves this season. Josh Lunden was a recipient of the Offensive award back on Oct. 16th, Winston Daychief won the Rookie award on Oct. 23rd and Kane Lafranchise picked up the Rookie award on Nov. 20th. Congratulations to the better Crowder brother on receiving this weekly honor and thanks for choosing UAA.
