Lown, a 19-year-old Newport Coast native, had the best weekend of his young career, nearly doubling his career total of three points entering the series, as he tallied two points in a 6-3 win over Bowling Green State University on Friday.

He scored his first career goal 6:15 into the first period to put Miami in front 1-0, while he also handed out the primary assist on Josh Melnick’s goal that made it 3-1 Miami early in the second period. It was his first career multi-point game on Friday, as well, when he was plus-1 playing on the top line.

In Saturday’s 2-2 tie, Lown fired a shot on goal and had an even rating, as he finished the weekend with a goal, an assist, plus-1 and two shots on goal, while also blocking three shots in the two games.

As a youth, Lown skated for the Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
