FARMINGTON HILLS - Lake Superior State freshman forward Nathan Perkovich was named Central Collegiate Hockey Association Rookie of the Week after picking up two goals and an assist in last weekend's 3-0 and 4-2 victories over Wayne State.

Perkovich scored the winning goal on Friday, and was named the game's first star Saturday after notching a goal and an assist. He drew the assist on Troy Schwab's 4-on-4 game-winning goal at 17:17 of the third period.

Perkovich, a 6-5, 200-pounder from Canton, Mich., is leading the Lakers (8-4-0) in goals scored with eight and has three assists so far this season. He is tied for first in the CCHA in power-play goals with five. He is tied for sixth in the league in goals scored and is ranked No. 1 among freshmen in that category.

Other CCHA Player of the Week honors went to Miami's Ryan Jones (offensive), Ohio State's Sean Collins (defensive) and Michigan's Billy Sauer (goaltender).

The Lakers resume CCHA play on Friday and Saturday at Alaska.
