Kudos for Greenway and Oettinger; Keller impresses--UPDATED

Sophomore wing Jordan Greenway is Hockey East’s Warrior Player of the Week and freshman goalie Jake Oettinger was named Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week after they led BU to a pair of weekend wins at Agganis Arena.

The 6’5” Greenway scored the game-winning goal in each of the Terrier victories against Sacred Heart and #4 Quinnipiac, and he also had a primary assist in both games. Oettinger authored back-to-back shutouts of the Pioneers (7-0) and Bobcats (3-0) with 46 total saves. Three weeks into the season, he owns the top goals-against (1.42) and save percentage (.947) numbers among Hockey East netminders. Nationally, the Lakeville, Minn, native is third in GAA and fifth in save percentage.

Earlier this season, freshmen Patrick Harper and Clayton Keller claimed the Player of the Week and Rookie awards respectively.  Junior blueliner John MacLeod, with three assists and +4 for the weekend, was named to Hockey East’s weekly list of top performers.

UPDATE: Oettinger's twin shutouts earned him the NCAA's #2 star of the week:

With its pair of weekend victories, BU moved up to #4 in the USCHO weekly poll, just behind #3 Denver. There are six Hockey East teams in the top 16 and ten Terrier opponents among the 20 ranked teams.  Terriers also are #4 in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll and in ESPN’s John Buccigross’s rankings of D1 teams.
