SCSU's Brendan Bushy, Dominic Basse receive NCHC honors
Graduate student defenseman named Defenseman of the Week and junior named Goaltender of the Week
Two St. Cloud State players have received honors from the NCHC for their play last weekend at Colorado College.
Graduate student Brendan Bushy was named NCHC Defenseman of the Week and junior Dominic Basse was named NCHC Goaltender of the Week.
Bushy, who is from Thief River Falls, Minn., scored his first goal of the season on Friday and had his first assist of the season on Saturday. In the series, he blocked four shots, helped the Huskies go 6-for-6 on the penalty kill and was a plus-3 in a series sweep at Colorado College. Bushy leads the team in plus/minus (plus-10) in 14 games this season.
Basse, a Chicago Blackhawks draft pick from Alexandria, Va., continued with his strong first season with the Huskies on Saturday. Basse stopped all 36 shots he faced in a 5-0 win to pick up his second shutout of the season.
Basse, the AHCA National Goaltender of the Month for October, leads the nation in save percentage (.948), is second in goals-against average (1.29) and is 6-1 in seven starts this season. He is in his first season with SCSU after transferring from Colorado College.
North Dakota forward Jackson Blake was named NCHC Rookie of the Week after having three goals and an assist in a series against Miami.
Western Michigan junior Luke Grainger was named NCHC Forward of the Week after picking up three goals and an assist in a series against Minnesota Duluth.
St. Cloud State (4-2 NCHC, 11-3 overall) is ranked No. 3 in both NCAA Division I polls this week. The Huskies are off this week before playing host to North Dakota (2-3-1, 5-6-2) on Dec. 2-3 at the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center.
