DEFENSEMAN OF THE WEEK

Jaccob Slavin, Colorado College

Freshman defenseman

Erie, Colo.

 

Slavin was impressive in his first collegiate action, helping Colorado College to a weekend split in the Tigers’ season-opening series against Minnesota Duluth. He totaled two points in two games, while finishing with a +1 rating on the weekend and blocking two shots. The rookie was especially impressive on the penalty kill, going a perfect 15-for-15 on his short-handed shifts to help CC finish 12-for-13 on the penalty kill in the series. In Friday’s 3-1 win, Slavin had the primary assist on the Tigers’ third goal that sealed the win for his first career point, while helping them go 4-for-4 on the penalty kill and posting a +1 rating. Saturday, he scored his first career goal, CC’s only of the game, in the second period to pull Colorado College within one at 2-1.
