Guttman compiled four points in DU’s win and tie against Alaska last weekend, notching the first two multi-point games of his collegiate career.

In Friday’s 4-1 win, the Tampa Bay draft pick doled out the first two assists of his career, setting up DU’s first goal on the power play to tie the game, while also assisting on the game-winner two minutes later to break the deadlock.

The next night, Guttman helped rally the Pioneers to a 3-3 overtime tie, handing out the primary assist on DU’s first goal in the second period to start a comeback from 3-0 down. He then scored Denver’s second goal, the second of his career, with an extra attacker late in the game to close the deficit to one as the Pioneers pulled out the tie with Guttman earning First Star of the Game.

Guttman finished the series with a goal, three assists, six shots on goal and a +4 plus/minus, including +3 Saturday. He also went 23-11 in the faceoff circle (.676) on the weekend.

During his youth career, Guttman played for the Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
