Michigan Tech senior forward Reid Sturos was named the WCHA Offensive Player of the Week. Sturos helped the Huskies secure five out of a possible six WCHA points over Alabama Huntsville over the weekend.
Sturos earns recognition for a goal that, per NCAA rules does not count in the official statistics, but goes down in the history books as the first regular season, double-overtime game-winner in WCHA history. Playing in the WCHA's first-ever 3-on-3 overtime, the senior from Brighton buried the winner to give Michigan Tech the extra league point after a 1-1 tie. Sturos also helped the Huskies to a 7-3 win in the series opener, netting a power-play goal. This is Sturos' fourth career WCHA weekly award, but first since winning three Rookie of the Week honors as a freshman in 2013-14.
