Los Angeles native, Jr. Kings grad de Mey chosen WCHA Forward of the Week
Northern Michigan sophomore Vincent de Mey has been selected the WCHA Forward of the Week.
A Los Angeles native, de Mey spurred a four-goal third period for the Wildcats on Saturday night with his first career hat trick to give NMU the weekend sweep with a 6-3 victory over Alaska Anchorage. His first goal of the night came just over a minute after the Seawolves tied it 2-2. He then posted two more tallies, including a shorthanded goal in the following 6:51 of game action to complete the hat trick and boost his team to a 6-3 win.
The Los Angeles Jr. Kings alum tied for the national lead in goals on the weekend, while his four total points also tied for the nation’s top spot. With a plus-4 rating, de Mey led the WCHA and was alone in first with total goals (three) and goals per game (1.5).
Nationally, he is tied for 12th in shorthanded goals (one) and his hat trick performance ranks among the best in the nation.
After a short scoring drought, he now has tallied at least one point in each of his last three games (three goals, two assists).
This the fourth WCHA weekly honor of de Mey’s career, all of which have come this season. He was also honored as the league’s Forward of the Month in October.
