I knew seeing this on Instagram would keep me up at night, so, via Shai Buium’s Instagram account comes a heads-up regarding his teammate, Carter Mazur, being named the NCHC’s Rookie of the Week:
ROOKIE OF THE WEEK
Carter Mazur, Denver
Mazur had the best weekend of his young career, tallying four points in the series and a goal each night to help lead Denver to a sweep of Western Michigan. On Friday, he recorded a career-high three points in a 5-3 win over WMU for his second career multi-point game. The Detroit Red Wings prospect handed out primary assists on DU’s first and third goals, then scored the game-winning goal Friday for his first career game-winner. The next night, Mazur scored Denver’s first goal to tie the game at 1-1 in an eventual 5-2 victory.
Mazur finished the series with two goals, two assists and seven shots on goal, including five on Friday. He also posted a +4 plus/minus in the sweep, going +2 each night. On the season, he now has four goals and seven assists in 10 games.
This is Mazur’s first career NCHC weekly award.
