ISKHAKOV RECORDS FOUR-POINT WEEK: 

Ruslan Iskhakov recorded four points (1G, 3A) in two games last week for the UConn Huskies. Iskhakov picked up an assist in UConn's 3-2 win over Northeastern on Thursday and had a three-point game (1G, 2A) - including the game-winning goal - in a 5-0 win over Merrimack on Sunday. 

The three-point game was Iskhakov's second in nine days, as the Isles' 2018 second-round pick (43rd overall) also had a trio of points against Boston College on Feb. 1. Iskhakov has seven points (3G, 4A) in his last three games, which accounts for half of his season production (5G, 10A).

DOBSON EXTENDS POINT STREAK TO FIVE GAMES: 

Noah Dobson recorded five assists in three games last week for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies, extending his assist streak to five straight games. Dobson, the Islanders' 2018 first-round pick (12th overall), has nine total assists on his five-game run, his longest assist/point streak of the season. Since being acquired by the Huskies, Dobson has recorded 19 assists in 15 games. 

The Huskies are 15-0-0 since acquiring Dobson, part of an ongoing 17-game winning streak. Rouyn-Noranda is 47-7-1 this season, leading the QMJHL with 95 points.

Boston College will face Northeastern for the Beanpot championship on Monday night (Feb. 11). 

In non-Beanpot action, Boston College was shut out 3-0 against UMass Lowell on Friday night, ending Wahlstrom's three-game point streak.
