Boyd named Big Ten’s Third Star
The Big Ten hockey conference announced its Three Stars of the Week and Minnesota forward Travis Boyd was named the league’s Third Star. It is the second time this season Boyd has received a Big Ten weekly award and the fourth such honor of his career.
Boyd was named the Big Ten First Star of the Week on Oct. 28.
The Hopkins, Minn. native picked up four points as the Gophers tied and beat Wisconsin over the weekend and extended his point streak to five games during which he has accumulated five goals and eight points.
After notching an assist in Friday’s disappointing tie with the Badgers (won by Wisconsin in a shootout), Boyd scored twice, including his conference-leading fourth game winner. Boyd also added an assist to bring his season total to 16 points, including a career-best nine goals in 20 games.
