Kallen tied for the WCHA defenseman scoring lead this past weekend, tallying a pair of assists in Ferris State’s nonconference home split against Mercyhurst.

The junior from San Diego produced the first assist on Cooper Zech’s power-play goal in the second period Friday, giving the Bulldogs a 2-1 lead they would not relinquish en route to a 5-2 victory.

Kallen added three shots on goal and five blocked shots, as his play helped Ferris State outshoot Mercyhurst by a 68-39 tally over the two-game set.

This is Kallen’s first career WCHA weekly award.

During his youth career, Kallen skated for the San Diego Jr. Gulls.
