Weekly Honors Continue After de Mey's Three Goal Weekend

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- For the second consecutive week, sophomore forward Vincent de Mey has been named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association's Forward of the Week as announced by the league Monday afternoon (Oct. 21). 

The team-leader in goals and points through four games, de Mey extended his impressive goal streak to four with three goals at then-No. 20/RV Boston University as the Wildcats concluded their first road trip of the season with an undefeated away record (1-0-1). Notching a goal on Friday night that led the two teams to tie through 65 minutes of action, his run continued on Saturday evening when he recorded the first multi-goal game of his career, including the game-winner at 8:56 of the third period. 

In the WCHA, de Mey ranks first in goals with five and second in total points, adding an assist to his goal tally for six total. He also leads the league in goals per game, averaging 1.25 through his first four games. The leader in power play goals, he also ranks among the top in points with the man advantage (3). His three power play goals lead the nation as well and he's tied for third nationally in goals (5). His 1.25 goals per game ranks fifth in the national standings while he's sixth in game-winning goals with one. 

The WCHA Forward of the Week honor comes as de Mey's second of his career and of the 2019-20 season. 

Nolan Kent (goaltender) and Hank Sorensen (rookie) were named honorable mentions.

The Wildcats open WCHA play this weekend when the team heads downstate to Big Rapids, Michigan to take on the Ferris State Bulldogs. Northern Michigan leads the all-time series 60-30-6 and went 2-0 against the Bulldogs last season at home.
