Minnesota forward Nate Condon, who produced five scoring points and earned the No. 1 Star of the Game honors both nights while helping the top-ranked Golden Gophers to a victory and tie against league-rival and No. 6 North Dakota last weekend, has been named Red Baron® WCHA Men's Offensive Player of the Week for January 22.

A 6-0, 198-pound junior center from Wausau,Wis., Condon scored a pair of goals and set up three others as host Minnesota earned three points from UND to extend their unbeaten streak to 10 games (8-0-2) and move into a share of first place in the WCHA race. He scored a shorthanded goal and drew two assists in a 5-1 victory last Friday (Jan. 18) night, including one on teammate Ben Marshall's second period game-winner. He then had two more points last Saturday (Jan. 19), including the game-tying goal at 17:02 of the third period after Minnesota had trailed by 3-1 and 4-2 margins. In addition to his five points in the series, Condon put four shots on goal and earned a +3 plus/minus rating.

A draftee of the NHL's Colorado Avalanche, Condon is fourth in scoring at Minnesota this season with 23 points (9g, 14a) in 24 games. Over his 102 game collegiate career, he has 70 points (28g, 42a). 

Ryan Faragher of St. Cloud State was named the Red Baron WCHA Defensive Player of the Week while Michigan Tech's Phoenix Copley earned Red Baron WCHA Rookie of the Week honors. 

Minnesota returns to action with a home-and-home series with Minnesota State this weekend.
