Cheyne Player of the Week

In the 12-goal weekend in Alaska the biggest Bronco contributor received Central Collegiate Hockey Association accolades Monday. Sophomore Jeremy Cheyne's six point series earned the left wing the CCHA Offensive Player of the Week.

"It's an outstanding honor for him personally," Head Coach Jim Culhane said. "Not only is it a reflection on Jeremy's play but on the team's play."

Cheyne's honor is the fifth time a Bronco has been named player of the week, and the second straight week in a row.

The Calgary, Alberta native added two goals and four helpers against the University of Alaska Fairbanks last weekend. One of his two goals was the Friday night game winner in the thrilling 6-4 comeback win, in which the Broncos trailed 4-1. "We knew we had to do something. Everything came together in the third," Cheyne said. "Once we get on a roll, everything was going right"

Meanwhile, his 14 assists now leads the team. "I am moving the puck really well right now," Cheyne said. "And it really helps with (Vince) Bellissimo and (Dana) Lattery shooting the puck so well."

Cheyne's assist streak now reaches five straight games, which were all Bronco victories.

WMU has the weekend off before returning to CCHA action against No.9 Ohio State University, which ended the Broncos season in the first round of the playoffs. Both games will be in OSU's 17,000-seat Value City Arena on Feb. 7-8.
