PROSPECT COREY TROPP NAMED CCHA PLAYER OF THE WEEK
/ Buffalo Sabres
Junior alternate captain Corey Tropp (Grosse Pointe Woods, Mich.) was named the CCHA Offensive Player of the Week, as announced on Monday, Oct. 26 by the league office. It is his first such honor in the 2009-10 season.
Michigan State’s top-line winger has been an offensive force in the first three weeks of the season; in last weekend’s action, he had a goal and a pair of assists on the split with Miami (2-1 loss, 3-2 win (OT). Tropp assisted on MSU’s lone goal on Friday, then had a goal and an assist in Saturday’s win. Defensively, Tropp was not on the ice for any of Miami’s four goals against in the two games, and all of his points came with Michigan State skating on the man advantage.
Tropp’s 12 points is a current national and CCHA lead, and he leads the conference in goals (6), assists (6), and power-play goals (4) and points (8) as well.
The 20-year-old Tropp was selected by the Sabres in the third round (89th overall) in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
