RIT freshman forward Carter Wilkie won his second-straight Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Month award, announced Tuesday.
Wilkie has been named the Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week five times this season, including three times in November. He was credited with the overtime game-winning goal and assisted the game-tying goal in RIT’s 3-2 victory at AIC (Nov. 7) and also logged the game-winner in the Tigers’ 3-2 win over visiting Holy Cross (Nov. 19).
Wilkie finished the month assisting two goals in RIT’s 5-4 win at Princeton (Nov. 26).
He is currently tied for eight in Atlantic Hockey with 12 points and tied for sixth with six goals.
His three game-winning goals are tied for the sixth-highest total in the nation. He is also tied for sixth among the nation’s freshmen in both goals and points.
Ranked among Atlantic Hockey’s top face-off specialists, he compiled 64 face-off wins and a .520 winning percentage over the last month.
Wilkie was also named the Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Month for October.
Wilkie and the Tigers (9-5-2, 5-3-2 AHA) are off until next Saturday and Sunday (Dec. 11-12) when Atlantic Hockey-rival Army pays a visit to the Gene Polisseni Center. Face-off both nights is scheduled for 5:05 p.m.
