BOWLING GREEN — Two members of the Bowling Green State University hockey team were honored by the Western Collegiate Hockey Association for their play in the month of November.
Sophomore defenseman Alec Rauhauser was named WCHA defenseman of the month, while sophomore goalie Ryan Bednard was selected as WCHA goaltender of the month, the league announced Friday.
Rauhauser led all WCHA defensemen with three goals and four assists in eight November games. He was named the league’s defensive player of the week for his play against then-No. 5 Minnesota State when he posted a multi-goal game and a three-point night against the Mavericks.
Bednard had a 1.67 goals-against average in November, the best mark among WCHA goalies. He posted a 2-0-2 record between the pipes for the month and surrendered just eight goals in six games.
