MINNEAPOLIS - Gopher Hockey freshman Brannon McManus has been tabbed the Big Ten Third Star of the Week after recording his first career hat trick in Minnesota's 6-3 win over Penn State on Sunday at 3M Arena at Mariucci.
A native of Newport Beach, Calif., McManus scored three goals - his first three collegiate tallies - on three shots in the third period including the eventual game-winning goal. His three goals led all Big Ten skaters as well as all NCAA freshmen over the weekend. The forward was plus-three on the night and also added a block in the win.
