APPLETON, Wis. — Lawrence University freshman Blake Roubos has been named the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association Offensive Player of the Week.
Roubos (Niagara Falls, Ontario), a forward, continued a strong start during his rookie season¬†by piling up five points with two goals and three assists ¬†in Lawrence’s 6-6 tie with Gustavus Adolphus College this past Friday.
Playing in the NCHA-MIAC Thanksgiving Showdown, Roubos scored one goal and assisted on three more to help Lawrence build a 5-1 lead against the Gusties. Gustavus bounced back to take a 6-5 lead, but Roubos lifted his team in the final seconds of regulation. With an extra attacker on the ice, Roubos scored the game-tying goal with just nine seconds left to force overtime.
The five points ties for the fifth-highest game total in Lawrence history. Roubos also ran his consecutive games point streak to seven to start his career.
On the season, Roubos has five goals and eight assists for 13 points in eight games. He ranks first in the conference among rookies at 1.62 goals per game, and that ranks third overall in the league.
Lawrence returns to action this weekend when it hosts St. Norbert College in a home-and-home series.
