Kevin Clark's 4 goal and 2 assist weekend versus Minnesota-Duluth earned him the Western Collegiate Hockey Associations Offensive Player of the Week for the final weekend of the regular season. Here's the text of the announcment:
A 5-9, 167-pound right winger from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Clark scored four goals in the series and added two assists for six points as the visiting Seawolves swept on the road for the first time since Nov. 10-11, 2000 (@ Wisconsin) and extended their winning streak to four games - a feat that hasn't been accomplished in over a decade (Dec. 4, 1998-Jan. 8, 1999). Last Friday (March 6) at the Duluth Entertainment & Convention Center, Clark led the UAA attack with a two-goal, two-assist night in a 5-4 victory over the host Bulldogs. He scored the game-opening goal in the first period, tied the score at 3-3 with a goal in the second, and then set up both of his team's goals in the third period - including teammate Josh Lunden's winner. Last Saturday (March 7) evening, Clark came back with a two-goal night to lead Alaska Anchorage to a 4-3 win over UMD. In addition to his six points in the series, he also fired 10 shots on goal and earned a +3 plus/minus rating. On the 2008-09 season, Clark ranks second on the UAA team in scoring with 29 points in 32 games (11g,18a).Congratulations to Kevin for receiving this award. His scoring keyed both wins against UMD but his numbers don't tell the whole story for the weekend. Kevin was a pest; he got into more than one UMD player's head and his play created opportunities for others. Great weekend all around for Mr. Clark. It was the sixth POTW award for a Seawolf player this season.
