Weninger Named NCHC Goaltender of the Week

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.
