Senior right wing Stephen Schultz, who recorded a career-high five points in a recent 9-2 home-ice victory over the University of Denver, was named WCHA co-Offensive Player of the Week on Tuesday, Nov. 9.
Schultz’s first of two goals in the romp, at 6:35 of the second period, gave the Tigers a lead they never relinquished after falling behind 1-0 in the opening frame of their series finale with DU. The 5-11, 183-pound native of Westbury added three assists in the game, including one on the game-winning tally by freshman left wing Jaden Schwartz.
Schultz also scored CC’s only goal in the 4-1 loss to the Pioneers at Magness Arena, giving him six points for the weekend.
The Tigers are 4-5-1 overall and 2-4 in WCHA play after the split with Denver. They are a remarkable 30-1-1 against Air Force since the 1985-86 season but dropped a 4-1 decision in their last trip to the academy during the 2008-09 campaign.
The first CC player to earn Player of the Week honors this season, Schultz shares the Offensive Player of the Week distinction with sophomore forward Jordan George of Bemidji State, who also picked up six points in his team’s split at St. Cloud State.
