Hunter Bischoff (Anchorage Wolverines) tallied the first goal in Augustana hockey history as he fired in a shot to the back of the netting in a 3-2 win over Bowling Green on Saturday night.

Atlantic Hockey Goalie of the Week: Jason Grande, Holy Cross (Amarillo Bulls) - Holy Cross senior Jason Grande limited No. 20/20 Connecticut to one power-play goal on 51 shots on goal to backstop the Crusaders to a home-and-home sweep of the Huskies. The West Chester, Pa., native stopped 22-of-23 shots in Friday’s home 2-1 win before blanking the Huskies with a 28-save performance at UConn on Saturday. The shutout was the second of his collegiate career. This is his third career Atlantic Hockey weekly honor.

Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week: Brendan Gibbons, F, Air Force (Maine Nordiques) - Air Force freshman Brendan Gibbons led Atlantic Hockey in scoring over the weekend with four points in the Falcons’ home series with No. 8/8 Michigan State. The Wakefield, R.I., native registered a goal and an assist in each game against the Spartans. Gibbons recorded his first career point in the series opener with a first-period assist on Air Force’s second goal. He then netted his first career goal to put the Falcons up, 4-1, in the second period. In the series finale, Gibbons assisted on the Falcons’ first goal then scored unassisted 50 seconds later. This is his first career Atlantic Hockey weekly honor.

B1G #2 Star: Joey Larson, F, Michigan State (New Mexico Ice Wolves) – Larson amassed five points (three goals, two assists) as Michigan State split a road series against Air Force on Oct. 12-13. He logged the third hat trick in college hockey this season with a four-point night (three goals, assist) in MSU’s 5-3 over the Falcons. He also finished with a team-high 11 shots on the weekend. The first-year transfer collects his first conference weekly honor.

CCHA Goaltender of the Week: Alex Tracy, Minnesota State (Johnstown Tomahawks) - Tracy went 2-0-0 with a CCHA-best 1.46 goals-against average and a .943 save percentage, which was good for second among conference netminders. Stopping 50 of the 53 shots he faced on the weekend against No. 9/10 St. Cloud State, he made 21 stops in a 3-2 victory on Friday night, before turning away a career-high 29 in a 5-1 win on Saturday.

Hockey East Rookie of the Week: Jack Musa, F, UMass (Odessa Jackalopes) – Musa led UMass in points on the week in a split series against No. 6 Michigan with five assists, setting up five of UMass’ eight goals on the weekend, including three of the six goals the Minutemen scored in the third period in Saturday’s come-from-behind victory over the Wolverines. The six goals in a period set a UMass Hockey East era record. Musa also assisted on both goals in Friday’s setback and he currently leads UMass in scoring with six points through three games.

NCHC Goaltender of the Week: Ludvig Persson, North Dakota (Lone Star Brahmas) - Persson shined in his official North Dakota debut, backstopping the Fighting Hawks to the Ice Breaker Tournament title. He didn’t allow an even-strength goal all weekend and surrendered only two goals all tournament. In the season opener on Friday against Army, Persson made 11 saves, including three on breakaways, in a 7-2 victory, with his only goals allowed all weekend coming on the power play. In Saturday’s championship game versus Wisconsin, the Swede turned aside all 29 shots he faced for his first shutout in the green and white and sixth of his career after transferring from Miami. Persson earned First Star of the Game Saturday, making seven short-handed saves as UND went 4-for-4 on the penalty kill. Persson finished the Ice Breaker Tournament with a .952 save percentage, totaling 40 saves on 42 shots faced. He also posted a 1.00 goals-against average on the weekend and is now 2-0-0 on the season.
