Tiefenwerth Named HEA Rookie of the Week, Polls, & Recruit Update

I’m combining the usual Monday and Tuesday posts this week as tomorrow I’ll be at Matthews Arena for the second time in four days to watch UMass hoops to take on the Huskies.

K.J. Tiefenwerth was recognized as the Hockey East Rookie of the Week for his one goal, two assist effort against Northeastern on Saturday.  Tiefenwerth is the first UMass player to receive weekly honors this season.  Rocco Carzo was named a Top Performer for his play this past weekend.

New Hampshire was named the Team of the Week for their sweep of Lowell and, with Boston College splitting their series with Boston University, the Wildcats moved into the top spot in the USCHO poll as well.  UMass is the only team to hand UNH a loss this season.  BC moves down to #2 while BU moved up a couple spots to #7.  UMass is in the Also Receiving Votes category with one vote, as is their opponent this weekend, Colgate.

Ben Gallacher – D – Green Bay Gamblers (USHL) – 2013 (transfer)
5 GP / 1 G / 0 A / 1 Pts / 30 PIM / –2
Gallacher is in the middle of serving his second 8 game suspension of the season.

Kenny Gillespie – RW – Omaha Lancers (USHL) – 2013
21 GP / 5 G / 4 A / 9 Pts / 37 PIM / 0
Gillespie assisted on the game winning goal for the Lancers last Wednesday

Mark Hamilton – D – Salisbury School Crimson Knights (NE Prep) – 2013
0 GP / 0 G / 0 A / 0 Pts
Salisbury is playing, but doesn’t have stats on their school website.

Mike Iovanna – RW/C – Malden Catholic Lancers (MA High School) – 2013
0 GP / 0 G / 0 A / 0 Pts
Malden Catholic’s first game is on 12/15

Dennis Kravchenko – LW – Sioux Falls Stampede (USHL) – 2013 or 2014
21 GP / 10 G / 11 A / 21 Pts / 45 PIM / +3
Kravchenko had a rare pointless weekend, which wasn’t helped by getting a game misconduct in one of them.

Patrick Lee – LW – Brooks Bandits (AJHL) – 2014
26GP / 13 G / 14 A / 27 Pts / 6 PIM / 0
Lee had two goals and three assists in his two most recent games.  He’s currently 14th in the AJHL in total points and 18th in goals.

Casey Miller – C – Kimball Union (NE Prep) – 2014
0 GP / 0 G / 0 A / 0 Pts
KUA is playing but does not have stats on their website.

Willy Smith – LW – Springfield Pics (EJHL) – 2014
11 GP / 0 G / 1 A / 1 Pts / 4 PIM
No points for Smith in his recent games

Frank Vatrano– LW/C – Junior Bruins (EJHL) – 2013
13 GP / 8 G / 6 A / 14 Pts / 12 PIM
Vatrano had a couple assists in his last two games.

The Collegian has this piece on Tiefenwerth reuniting with prep linemate Mike Pereira this past weekend.  Obviously it worked.
