Wisconsin sophomore forward and team captain Luke Kunin was named the Big Ten’s second star after scoring three goals and adding two assists in a pair of road wins over St. Lawrence and Clarkson last weekend.
Kunin is the third Badger to receive the Big Ten’s weekly award, following defenseman Corbin McGuire and forward Trent Frederic.
The Chesterfield, Missouri native scored a pair of goals in Friday night’s 5-2 win over No. 18 St. Lawrence and added a goal and two assists in Wisconsin’s 5-4 victory over Clarkson on Saturday.
Kunin moved into a tie with McGuire for the team lead in goals with four and fourth on the team in points with seven through the first six games.
Kunin was drafted 15th overall by the Minnesota Wild in the 2016 NHL entry draft.
Ohio State’s Matthew Weis was this week’s first star, while the Buckeye’s defenseman Tommy Parran earned third-star honors.
The Badgers return home this weekend to take on the Northern Michigan Wildcats. The two teams split a two-game series on opening weekend in Green Bay at the Resch Center.
