For the second time this season, goaltender Richard Bachman has been tapped as Inside College Hockey's player of the week for his 60-for-60 performance against then-No. 13 Minnesota-Duluth. The Tigers have earned the honor three times overall as right wing Mike Testwuide was named player of the week after the Clarkson series.
Bachman was also tapped as WCHA rookie of the week, the third time this season he has received that honor.
Center Andreas Vlassopoulos, who had two goals and two assists at Duluth, was named WCHA offensive player of the week.
Around the horn:
--I can hardly wait to hear what Jimmy Kilpatrick has to say about this story. Kilpatrick and his sister, Jenna, a freshman on Ohio State's hockey team, trained with an Ultimate Fighting Championship fighter this summer.
--Tough break for former CC right wing James Brannigan. The would-be senior was released from the Augusta Lynx (ECHL) for the second time last week. He had eight points in 20 games.
