Wayne State freshman defenseman Mark Bradshaw was named College Hockey America's rookie of the week today.
The 21-year-old from Stony Plain, Alberta, turned in a solid defensive effort for the Warriors despite Wayne State suffering a non-conference road sweep at Nebraska-Omaha over the weekend. He helped anchor a defensive unit which allowed 29 shots on goal Friday, including just six in the first period and eight in the second period. Wayne State also allowed just one power-play opportunity in the game.
On the weekend, Bradshaw had an even plus/minus rating and was on the ice for just one goal against while helping the Wayne State power play convert two of 13 chances.
