Junior Evan Weninger has been named the NCHC’s Goaltender of the Week. It’s the second straight week a Maverick hockey player has picked up a player of the week award.
Weninger earned up his eighth win of the year and second straight, backstopping Omaha’s 4-1 win over No. 6 North Dakota in the opener of last weekend’s series in Grand Forks. Weninger stopped 34 of 35 shots, allowing only a penalty shot goal in the first period.
The Mavericks are back home this week, hosting Miami on Friday and Saturday, Jan. 12-13. Both games start at 7:07 p.m. from Baxter Arena.
