Minnesota State’s Tuomie named WCHA Rookie of the Week

Minnesota State Men’s Hockey freshman forward Parker Tuomie has been named Western Collegiate Hockey Association Rookie of the Week for his performance in two Maverick wins last week.

A native of Bremerhaven, Germany, and a product of Sioux Falls of the United States Hockey League, Tuomie contributed two goals and an assist and totaled ten shots on goal as Minnesota State swept then seventh-rated St. Cloud State in a pair of nonconference games played in Mankato last weekend.

The 5-10, 185-lb lefthanded shot drew an assist on a goal by Michael Huntebrinker to open the scoring in Friday’s 4-1 victory. He then scored the fourth and sixth goals for the Mavericks and had a team-high six shots on goal in Saturday’s 6-4 victory as MSU gained its first sweep over the Huskies since the 2007-08 campaign. The goals are the first of his college career.

Rated #9 in this week’s USCHO.com and USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine polls, the Mavericks are off to a 4-0-0 start to the 2016-17 season. Minnesota State resumes WCHA action this week with a pair of league contests at the University of Alaska Friday and Saturday.
