Minnesota State Mankato's Dryden McKay was named the CCHA goaltender of the week for his play in two wins over St. Thomas last weekend.
The senior from Downer's Grove, Ill., had shutouts in both games, making 13 saves in last Thursday's 9-0 home win over the Tommies and nine in Saturday's 5-0 victory. He has five shutouts this season and has extended the NCAA Division I men's hockey career shutout record to 29 games.
No. 1-ranked MSU Mankato will play a road series at Lake Superior State on Friday and Saturday.
