FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. - Miami University freshman forward Tyler Biggs earned CCHA Rookie of the Week honours, the Central Collegiate Hockey Association announced Monday, after helping the RedHawks to their first weekend sweep of the year. The accolade is the first of Biggs' career.
Biggs (Loveland, Ohio) recorded a pair of assists in Miami's sweep of Alaska over the weekend. He assisted on Miami's first goal in both games. Friday the assist came even strength while Saturday's assist came on the power play. It was Miami's first power play goal in its last 27 chances and first since Oct. 14. With points in both games, Biggs extended his point streak to a career-long four games. He is now tied for the team lead among freshmen with five points on a goal and four assists. Biggs also had a blocked shot in Friday's game and put one shot on goal in each contest.
