Mark Alt was named WCHA co-Offensive Player of the Week after leading all WCHA players with five points last weekend.
Alt led all WCHA players with five points (2g-3a) last weekend as host Minnesota split with Michigan Tech. In a 3-2 overtime setback last Friday, he scored the first goal of the game to put Minnesota up 1-0 and then assisted on Seth Helgeson's goal that sent the game into the extra session to earn No. 2 star honors.
On Saturday, Alt recorded the first three-point game of his collegiate career with the game-winning goal and two assists, earning No. 1 star accolades as the Gophers romped the Huskies 6-2.
Alt, who is a draftee of the Carolina Hurricanes, was also a +5 for the weekend and did not take a penalty. He was one the ice for only one goal against, which was a power-play tally.
Alt is the fifth Gopher to be honored by the WCHA this year. He joins Kyle Rau (Oct. 18 rookie of the week), Nick Bjugstad (Nov. 22 offensive player of the week) and Kent Patterson (Oct. 11 and Nov. 1 defensive player of the week) in being recognized by the WCHA this season.
