During the 2000-01 season, Michigan forward Mike Cammalleri was named CCHA Offensive Player of the Week twice. Now, just two months into this season, Cammalleri has equaled that total by winning the award for a second straight week.

The junior, who has had nine points in his past four games, provided much of the offensive spark in Michigan”s sweep of Miami this past weekend. In Friday”s game, Cammalleri broke a 2-2 tie with his 12th goal of the season. He added his 13th and 14th goals the following night to help the Wolverines complete the road sweep against the RedHawks with a 5-2 victory.

Also earning accolades for the second time this season was freshman Eric Nystrom, who was named the CCHA Freshman of the Week. This was the third time in four weeks that a Michigan player has won this award. Forward Dwight Helminen received the honor last week and Nystrom took home the award the week of Nov. 19.

Nystrom became the first Michigan freshman since Mike Comrie in 1999 to score four points in a single game.
