Congratulations are in order for sophomore Tommy Grant for receiving his second WCHA Player of the Week honor so far this season. Tommy's 3 goal and 2 assist performance on the weekend was best among WCHA players. He is currently tied for 1st in overall goal-scoring for WCHA players with Ryan Stoa of Minnesota. From the WCHA release:
One of his two assists came on teammate Pau Crowder’s shorthanded, game-winning goal in the final period. Then last Saturday (Nov. 22) night, in a 4-3 overtime loss to CC, Grant capped off an impressive series with two more goals, tallying a game-tying goal in the second period and then a shorthanded goal at 14:41 of the third that evened the score at 3-3. In addition to his five points, Grant also fired seven shots on goal in the series and earned a +2 plus/minus rating.
With only 7 points (5g, 2a) under his belt as a freshman, Tommy looks to be having a "super-soph" kind of year so far nabbing 10 goals and 7 assists. Good on him. His production is one of the key reasons that UAA has already surpassed last years league points total. Way to go Tommy. You can have both turkey legs for Thanksgiving if you want 'em.
