Ferris State's Cooper Zech Earns WCHA Rookie Honor For Second Consecutive Week

Cooper Zech

Big Rapids, Mich. - For the second consecutive week, Ferris State University's Cooper Zech (South Lyon) has been chosen as the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) Rookie of the Week.

Zech totaled three goals on two goals and an assist in a weekend split at Alabama-Huntsville as he continued his impressive play.

Zech's three points tied for the team-high and were the most by an WCHA defensive player or rookie on the weekend. He finished an impressive +4 on the ice and had seven shots with two blocks in a series that saw both games go to overtime.

The rookie standout had an assist on the Bulldogs' first goal in Friday's victory and then scored two of the Bulldogs' three markers in Saturday's game.

He also earned the WCHA Rookie of the Week honor last week following FSU's holiday trip to Minnesota and has claimed three WCHA weekly awards this year along with being chosen as the WCHA Rookie of the Month for December.

Ferris State returns home to take on the Minnesota State Mavericks on Friday and Saturday (Jan. 11-12) at the Ewigleben Ice Arena with both puck drops set for 7:07 pm EST. Tickets are on sale now and additional information can be found online at FerrisStateBulldogs.com or by calling (231) 591-2888.
