Following a weekend sweep of Alabama Huntsville, seniors Jake Evans (Second Star) and Jordan Gross (Third Star) have earned weekly Big Ten honors the conference announced on Tuesday morning (Oct. 10).
Evans totaled two goals and three assists for a five point weekend against the Chargers. In Friday night’s 5-3 win, he scored the third period game winner and also added an empty net shorthanded tally to seal the victory. In Saturday’s win, Evans - a 2014 Montreal draft pick - had a pair of assists and now has 24 multi-point games in an Irish uniform.
Gross had a four-point weekend against Alabama Huntsville, including three assists in game one of the series and a goal in game two. The senior defenseman also helped the Irish post a shutout on Saturday night as freshman goaltender Dylan St. Cyr earned the shutout in his first career start.
Both Evans (30-67-97) and Gross (27-68-95) are approaching the 100-career points plateau.
