Congratulations to UAA Seawolves forward Kevin Clark for receiving the WCHA's Offensive Player of the Week honor for March 9th, 2010. It is Kevin's 2nd such award this season for his offensive performance.
Here's the text of the WCHA release:
A 5-9, 171-pound senior and alternate captain from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Clark’s four goal series give him 23 goals on the season – first among WCHA players overall and eighth in the nation. His 23 goals this season also represent the most scored in a single season by a UAA player since Derek Donald had 23 in 1991-92.
Clark scored two goals in each matchup against the visiting UMD Bulldogs on March 5-6 at Sullivan Arena. His two goals last Friday night included the game-winner at 19:38 of the third period as the Seawolves captured a 3-2 victory. He then came back on Saturday with a power-play goal in the second period and an extra-attacker tally in the third as UAA dropped a 6-3 decision.
In addition to his four goals, Clark also fired seven shots on goal in the series.
On the 2009-10 season, Clark leads the Alaska Anchorage team in scoring with 37 points (23g, 14a) in 34 games played, averaging better than a point per game at 1.09.
Hopefully, Kevin uses this award as motivation to continue his outstanding 2nd half production into the playoffs this weekend versus the Wisconsin Badgers. I fully expect the Badger's to key on Clarky as part of their strategy this weekend. I say let them try ... the only thing likely to stop Kevin Clark from producing is Kevin Clark.
