RIT freshman forward Carter Wilkie landed his fifth Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week honor, Monday.
Wilkie garnered the award after helping the Tigers to an Atlantic Hockey sweep of visiting Holy Cross last week. He scored what proved to be the game-winning goal in the third period of Friday’s 3-2 victory before notching an assist in Saturday’s 4-3 decision. Wilkie also totaled 13 faceoff wins, including eight in Saturday’s contest, along with two blocked shots.
Carter is currently tied for fifth among the nation’s freshmen with six goals and tied for 10th with 10 points.
RIT (7-5-2, 5-3-2 AHA) will travel to Princeton for a pair of games this Friday and Saturday (Nov. 26-27) set to face-off at 7:00 p.m. both nights. The games can be watched on ESPN+ as well as on Stretch Internet outside the United States.
