Wisconsin Badger sophomore forward Mark Zengerle and freshman
goaltender Joel Rumpel were recognized as the WCHA Offensive and Rookie of the Week, respectively.
Zengerle, who wins his first WCHA Offensive Player of the Week honor, factored in on all five Wisconsin goals in the weekend series against Minnesota, including all four in the team’s 4-1 victory last Friday.
Zengerle, in the midst of a five-game scoring streak, shares the national lead with 37 assists and a 1.09 assists-per-game average, while ranking 4th in the nation with 49 points.
Rumpel stopped 56 of 59 shots on goal for a .949 save percentage and posted four shutout periods.
Rumpel came within 1:02 of a shutout last Friday, stopping 26 of 27 shots in UW’s 4-1 win on Friday night.
