Men's Hockey - Daniel Olszewski, Forward, 5-11, 203, Junior, Janesville, Wis./Craig

Olszewski helped the Blugolds remain undefeated on the season (7-0-1) as he scored three of the Blugolds’ eight goals against third-ranked St. Norbert College this weekend. Friday in a 5-3 win for Eau Claire, Olszewski got the Blugolds on the board in the second period at 1:41 to bring the Blugolds within one goal. The Blugolds then scored two more to take a 3-2 lead and never trailed the rest of the night. Saturday, in a 3-3 overtime tie against the Green Knights, Olszewski again scored the Blugolds’ first goal of the night at 9:51 in the first period to tie the score and then scored again at 6:59 in the second to tie the game at 2-2. Picking up three points this weekend, the Blugolds are now in first place in the NCHA with a 5-0-1 record. This is the first time since 1982 the Blugolds haven’t lost a game through their first eight to start the year, and it was the first time since 1995 St. Norbert didn’t win at least one game of a weekend series against Eau Claire.
