Alaska - Junior forward Colton Beck notched his first career hat trick in Friday’s 6-1 victory over Ohio State, the first by a Nanook since Nov. 11, 2011, when junior forward Cody Kunyk scored three times in a 5-4 overtime loss at Notre Dame.
Bowling Green - Sophomore forward Ryan Carpenter was held scoreless in a 3-1 loss to Michigan State on Saturday, snapping his 13-game point streak (8-8-16). Prior to Saturday, Carpenter’s last game without a point came in the Falcons’3-3 tie with Alaska on Dec. 8, 2012.
Ferris State - The Bulldogs regular-season home finale on Saturday versus Bowling Green is ‘Senior Night’ and will also be broadcast on FOX Sports Detroit as part of ‘Hockey Day in Michigan’ coverage.
Lake Superior - After back-to-back road series and a bye week, the Lakers host back-to-back home series against Alaska and Miami. Earlier this season, Lake Superior split at Alaska, losing, 2-1, and winning, 4-2.
Miami - The RedHawks split at Western Michigan, falling 2-0 on Friday before winning, 4-0, on Saturday. The loss on Friday snapped Miami’s season-long, five-game winning streak while the win on Saturday broke the Broncos’ six-game unbeaten streak.
Michigan - Junior forward Derek DeBlois and freshman forward Andrew Copp each scored short-handed goals in a 6-4 loss at Notre Dame on Friday. It marked the first time Michigan scored two short-handed goals in one game since Oct. 14, 2006, when Chad Kolarik and T.J. Hensick scored against Connecticut.
Michigan State - Junior forward Greg Wolfe scored three of the Spartans’ four goals on the weekend, and extended his goal-scoring streak to three games. After an 11-game streak without a point, Wolfe has eight points in his last nine games and five goals in his last seven contests.
Northern Michigan - The Wildcats snapped a three-game losing streak with a 3-0 win against Ferris State on Saturday. The shutout was junior goaltender Jared Coreau’s first of the season and second of his career.
Notre Dame - Notre Dame’s game on Feb. 17 versus Miami at Chicago’s Soldier Field is the first outdoor game for the Irish in the program’s 45-year varsity history. The last time that any Notre Dame team played outdoors was when the club team played at South Bend’s Howard Park during the 1967-68 season.
Ohio State - After allowing a season-high tying six goals on Friday against Alaska, Ohio State limited the Nanooks to one goal on Saturday. It was the Buckeyes 12th outing this season allowing one or fewer goals. The squad is eighth in the NCAA in team defense, allowing 2.23 goals-per game.
Western Michigan - Saturday’s loss to Miami was the first loss for the Broncos at home since its season-opener against St. Lawrence. It was also Western Michigan’s first home loss in conference play this season.
Celebrate the Legacy - On Feb. 10, 2001, Michigan State blanked Alaska, 3-0, as sophomore goalie Ryan Miller recorded his 17th career shutout to break the NCAA all-time record held by Wally Easton (1927-31) of Clarkson University which had stood for 70 years.
