Bowling Green (WCHA)
Mitch McLain (Bowling Green/WCHA), F, 6-0, 190, Baxter, Minn. (Brainerd High School)
The Falcons' rookie forward was named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association's Rookie of the Week as he tallied two goals, one assist and a team-high plus-3 rating as Bowling Green went 1-0-1 in a non-conference series at Clarkson.
His goal at 11 minutes, 31 seconds of the second period, Friday night, erased a 2-1 deficit as Bowling Green skated to a 2-2 tie.
McLain played a key role in Saturday night’s 5-4 victory, helping the Falcons score twice in a 3:34 span of the first period. He scored at the 14:12 mark and picked up an assist on the second goal of the span.
He also ran his point-scoring streak to four games, having tallied three goals and five points during that stretch.
The last two seasons have seen McLain playing in the British Columbia Hockey League for the Langley Rivermen, where he served as a captain for two years and totaled 104 points (43 goals, 61 assists) in 125 games including 71 points in 67 games in his final season with the Rivermen.
At Brainerd, McLain was a three-sport standout. In addition to being an all-conference hockey player for two years, he was a three-year letter winner in football, serving as a captain for the Warriors as a senior, and a two-year letter winner in baseball.
