Men’s Hockey

Brandon Wahlin, Forward, 5-8, 168, Sophomore, White Bear Lake, MN
Wahlin added his name to the school record book this weekend as the Blugolds went 2-0 in two non-conference games.  In a 4-0 victory over the Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) Wahlin assisted on the first two Blugold goals of the night including the eventual game-winning goal.  In an 11-2 victory over Lawrence University (Wis.) Wahlin led all scorers with five points scoring three goals and two assists.  All three Wahlin goals came off Blugold power plays and tied a school record most recently accomplished by Mike Litner against UW-Stevens Point on December 6, 1991.  Wahlin was one point and one goal shy of tying Blugolds single game records for points and goals scored in a single game.  Wahlin scored three of six Blugold power play goals scored against the Vikings.  It was the most goals scored by the Blugolds in a single game since a 12-4 victory over Concordia (Wis.) on November 24, 2012.  In two games Wahlin scored seven points on three goals and four assists over two games.
