Thorogood (Calgary, Alta.) earns a spot on the D3Hockey.com Team of the Week for the first time this season, while also being the first student-athlete to repeat as NCHA Offensive Player of the Week after playing a role in all five Sabre goals during a 3-3 tie against Saint John’s (Minn.) and 2-0 win over Bethel. In the opener against the Johnnies, he scored the opening goal and the game-tying goal in the third period, adding the assist on the second MU goal of the 3-3 draw. Then against Bethel, he scored on the power play to open the scoring, which proved to be the game-winner, and later assisted the second Marian goal. In all, he tallied 3 goals and 2 assists. Thorogood ranks second in the NCHA with seven goals so far this season and has a team-best 12 points.
