Petan named WCHA Player of the Week

EDINA, Minn. – Michigan Tech forward Alex Petan has been named the WCHA Offensive Player of the Week. The junior had three points and was +5 in Tech’s WCHA series sweep of Alabama Huntsville over the weekend.

In Friday’s 4-2 win, Petan assisted on Tech’s third goal—the eventual game winner. In Saturday’s 5-2 victory, he scored the game winner and his sixth goal in the last seven games. He also assisted on the game’s first goal. Petan is second in the nation with four game-winning goals and is tied for second in WCHA scoring (7-5=12).

The Huskies have this weekend (Dec. 5-6) off before hosting Minnesota Duluth on Dec. 12-13 in a non-conference series at the John MacInnes Student Ice Arena.
