RIT freshman forward Carter Wilkie was voted the Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week, announced Monday.
Wilkie scored 30 seconds into overtime of last Thursday’s 3-2 upset at No. 13 Notre Dame. Junior goalie Kolby Matthews made a sliding pad save 19 seconds into the extra period which was eventually cleared down the left-wing boards by junior forward Andrew Rinaldi. Sophomore defenseman Aiden Hansen-Bukata caught up to the puck in the Irish’s left face-off circle and centered a pass to Wilkie in the low slot for a short finish and the deciding tally.
Wilkie also won the award two weeks ago after scoring his first collegiate points on a goal and an assist in the Tigers’ two-game split at Army.
RIT hosts Mercyhurst for two games this Friday and Saturday (Oct. 29-30) at 7:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m., respectivley.
