Guttman played a key role in helping Denver sweep Omaha as he had a hand in both game-winning goals in a pair of one-goal victories to push DU’s win streak to seven games.

In Friday’s 1-0 shutout, he dished out an assist on the lone goal in the second period, which was the game-winner, while finishing plus-1. The next night, the Tampa Bay Lightning draft pick scored the game-winning goal early in overtime to break a 2-2 tie. He also fired three shots on goal and was plus-2 in Saturday’s 3-2 win, earning First Star of the Game.

Guttman completed the series with a goal, an assist, four shots on goal, one blocked shot and a plus-3 plus/minus, while also winning 13 of 23 faceoffs on the weekend (.565).

During his youth days, Guttman skated for the Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
