Reilly Smith, Miami
Smith had a goal in Miami’s 6-2 win over Providence on Friday and had two goals, including the game winner, in their 4-2 win over Denver in the finals of the Denver Cup. Smith is now up to 11 goals on the year and due to playing in the CCHA he should be considered to be among the Hobey frontrunners.
Scott Greenham, Alaska
Greenham made 39 total saves over the weekend against Bowling Green to help lead the Nanooks to their first CCHA sweep on the year and only their second sweep of the year. Though with only a total of 39 shots given up it is perhaps the Alaska defense who should be up for this honor. The Nanooks are now 9th in the CCHA after the 6 point weekend.
Danny Kristo, North Dakota
Kristo had two big goals in North Dakota’s 7-6 win over Colorado College and then had a shorthanded game winner on Saturday. Beyond his goal totals Kristo was all over the ice and had two assists on the weekend, as well as playing very well defensively. Kristo’s efforts helped the Sioux to their first WCHA sweep of the year and have them just two points out of home ice in the WCHA
winner: Rylan Schwartz, Colorado College
Brother Jaden gets most of the publicity, but Rylan had back to back hat tricks in losses to North Dakota over the weekend. He is now tied for 4th nationally in points per game (with Jaden) and leads the country in goals per game at 1.18 (13 goals in 11 games). He is just one of two players over a goal per game.
