Huntington Beach product, Jr. Ducks grad Loggins wins WCHA weekly award
Huntington Beach native and Anaheim Jr. Ducks graduate Troy Loggins has been named the WCHA Co-Offensive Player of the Week.
Loggins lifted No. 16 Northern Michigan into the 2018 WCHA championship with the game-winning, overtime goal in the decisive Game 3 of the Wildcats’ semifinal-round series against Bowling Green.
In a situation where the next goal would extend one team’s season and end it for the other, Loggins scored 15:53 into the sudden-death overtime to give NMU a 3-2 victory.
The junior tied for the league lead during the WCHA semifinals with two goals and three points, while posting a conference-best 19 shots on goal. Loggins had a two-point effort in the Wildcats’ 6-1 Game 1 victory, tying the contest 1-1 with a first-period, power-play marker, then assisting on NMU’s third goal.
This is Loggins’ second consecutive WCHA weekly award and third career honor, with all three coming this season (also on Jan. 15.).
