UNO sophomore Taylor Ward was named the NCHC forward of the week Monday after posting his first career hat trick against Western Michigan.
Ward scored three times in a 4-2 win over the Broncos on Saturday. He had the go-ahead goal late in the third period and added an assist on the Mavericks’ first goal. Ward also recorded an assist in UNO’s 5-2 loss Friday.
Ward has a team-high 16 goals this season, which ranks second in the conference.
