Teslak named WCHA Rookie of the Week

Story from

For the second straight week, a member of the Michigan Tech hockey team earned Western Collegiate Hockey Association honors as announced by league officials Monday. Freshman Michael-Lee Teslak has been named the Red Baron WCHA Rookie of the Week after his performances in a pair of stalemates Jan. 20-21 against Alaska-Anchorage. The netminder's award comes a week after teammate Justin St. Louis was tabbed WCHA co-Rookie of the Week.

Teslak made 70 saves in the two-game series and did not allow an even-strength goal in either contest. He stopped 29 of 31 shots in the series-opener and 41 of 43 shots in the rubber match Jan. 21. Teslak's 41-save effort marked the fourth time he has compiled at least 40 saves in the 2005-06 campaign.

The leader of all WCHA rookie goalies in saves (543) and saves per game (32), Teslak owns a 6-8-2 record in addition to a 3.50 goals against average and a .905 save percentage in 977:05 of action.

Teslak is the fourth Husky to receive a weekly WCHA honor this season. This week's recognition marks Teslak's second career WCHA Player of the Week award, as he was selected WCHA Rookie of the Week after a 57-save exhibition versus Michigan State Dec. 29, 2005.

The Huskies are off this weekend and return to conference play Feb. 3-4 with a two-game set at Minnesota State.
