Standout weekend receives league, national notice

Standout weekend receives league, national notice

Minnesota forward Travis Boyd’s performance against Ohio State last weekend earned him a pair of honors this week as the Hopkins, Minn. native was named Big Ten First Star of the Week and NCAA Third Star of the Week.

Boyd notched both game winners in the Gophers’ sweep of the Buckeyes and registered his first collegiate hat trick on his way to a career-high four-point night in Saturday’s 6-2 win.

The awards mark the fifth time Boyd has been honored by the Big Ten, and third this season, but the first time the Washington Capitals prospect has been recognized by the NCAA.

The senior has been hot of late, registering 20 points (10 goals, 10 assists) in his last 14 games and leads the Big Ten in game-winning goals with six (fourth nationally) and power-play goals with seven (tied fourth nationally).

Michigan State’s Zach Nagelvoort earned the Big Ten Second Star of the Week with PJ Musico of Penn State picking up Big Ten Third Star honors.
