Rau Named WCHA Rookie of the Week
Kyle Rau has four goal in four games this year.

Oct. 18, 2011

Freshmen forward Kyle Rau was named the Red Baron® WCHA Rookie of the Week for Oct. 18.

Rau scored three goals to help Minnesota sweep defending national champion Minnesota Duluth on the road last weekend. A 5-8, 173-pound freshman from Eden Prairie, Minn., and a draftee of the National Hockey League's Florida Panthers, Rau marked his first two collegiate road games by scoring two goals and firing five shots on goal in Minnesota's 5-4 overtime win against the Bulldogs last Friday at Amsoil Arena. On Saturday, he registered the game-winning goal at 10:02 of the third period in Minnesota's 5-4 victory. All three of his strikes came on the power-play, as Minnesota was 6-of-9 in man-advantage opportunities against its in-state rival.

Rau joins senior goaltender Kent Patterson in being honored by the WCHA this year. Patterson was named Co-Defensive Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 11 after starting the year with two consecutive shutouts.
