FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. -- Bemidji State men’s hockey junior defenseman Elias Rosén was named the CCHA Defenseman of the Week Monday after scoring one goal and recording two assists in the Beavers’ series with Arizona State.

Rosén scored his first goal of the season on the power play Friday and assisted two goals in BSU’s 4-3 win over the Sun Devils on Wednesday. He was also a key cog in Bemidji State’s penalty kill, which blanked ASU on all 10 of its power plays in the series.

Rosen, a native of Mora, Sweden, is the fifth BSU player to earn a player of the week nod from the CCHA this season.

Michigan Tech’s Tristan Ashbrook was named conference Forward of the Week, Minnesota State forward Tanner Edwards Rookie of the Week and Lake Superior State’s Ethan Langenegger Goaltender of the Week.

The Beavers (8-6, 6-2 CCHA) return to action against CCHA opponent St. Thomas at 7:07 p.m. Friday and Saturday, Dec. 3-4, in St. Paul.

What to read next
Once again, the festivities will feature several days of events and culminate with a day-long broadcast on Bally Sports North.
The Bulldogs entered the weekend seventh in the eight-team CCHA. They certainly didn’t look like it.
Each media timeout was extended as Mankato high school players and others shoveled off the sheet as best they could. By the third period, the piles got more and more difficult for them to push. Pucks cut through the snow, creating wakes behind them.
The Bemidji State men’s basketball team was maybe sticking around just long enough to steal a road win. But then, in a flash, Southwest Minnesota State put an end to any thievery.
