RIT forward Carter Wilkie named Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week

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.
