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.
