Curtis Leinweber's stellar play over the weekend has been honored by the WCHA who named him the co-Defensive Player of the Week today. Curtis recorded a 3 point weekend from the blueline this past weekend versus MTU and was an overall +5.
On Friday night he scored two goals including his first shorthanded goal, first game winning goal and first multi-goal game. On Saturday he assisted on Sean Wiles goal. Curtis' play all weekend was both crucial to the Seawolves two wins and overall worthy of praise. His point production wasn't the only indication of that excellent all-around play, but instead just the most easily quantifiable.
Over and over on the weekend, Curtis contributed to positive situations during a shift that either changed the momentum of the game to UAA or kept it in the Seawolves hands. His on-ice leadership was a big part of the series sweep. He was stellar on the offensive end of the ice, excellent along the boards and owned MTU players in his zone. It was an all around great performance.
Congratulations to Curtis for receiving this accolade. It's fully deserved.
