Wrapping Up the Weekend: Arizona State Series (Nov. 23-24, 2018)


What a big weekend for the Mavs! Following a bye week (and a bonus podcast from Jason & Jon), the Mavs returned to action at Baxter Arena and put together an impressive series, defeating #16 Arizona State 6-4 and then 4-0.

Evan Weninger backstopped the Saturday night shutout and earned NCHC Goaltender of the Week honors as a result. Mason Morelli had seven points on the weekend, and earned NCHC Offensive Player of the Week honors.






And Mason Morelli garnered "First Star" honors from the NCAA:
