St. CLoud State’s Drew LeBlanc and Kalle Kossila have received weekly honors from the WCHA.
LeBlanc, a senior center from Hermantown, was named Offensive Player of the Week. LeBlanc had two goals and three assists in a weekend sweep for the Huskies over visiting Minnesota State-Mankato. He shares the WCHA overall scoring lead with three goals and seven assists.
Kossila, a freshman wing from Finland, was named Rookie of the Week. Kossila had two goals and two assists for the Huskies in the series against the Mavericks. In four games, Kossila leads WCHA rookies with three goals and four assists and is a plus-8.
The lone weekly WCHA award the Huskies did not receive was Defensive Player of the Week. That was won by Wisconsin sophomore goalie Joel Rumpel. St. Cloud State sophomore goalie Ryan Faragher was nominated for that award after stopping 59 of 61 shots in the two wins.
