Junior Conner Blanck of No. 13/15 Marian University men’s hockey has earned a spot on the D3Hockey.com Team of the Week for the first time in his career.
Blanck (Fond du Lac, Wis.) had his second multi-point game of the season to help propel the Sabres past No. 10/11 St. Scholastica in the opener of the UW-Superior Showdown. Blanck recorded an assist on the first three Sabre goals to lead Marian to a 4-3 victory. The multi-assist performance was only the third of his career and propelled him to the team lead in assists with seven on the season. He is also currently tied for the team lead in points with 11.
Blanck was also named the NCHA Offensive Player of the Week for the first time in his career earlier this week.
