Kovacs Named NCHC Player of the Month
Kovacs (Grosse Point Woods, Mich./Cedar Rapids, USHL) finished the month with six points on four goals and two assists in six games and helped the Broncos to a 3-3-0 record during December. His four goals tied him for third nationally during the stretch and tied him with teammate Josh Pitt for the most goals scored by a NCHC player.
He was held scoreless in the first game of the month, a 3-2 loss to North Dakota, and then rattled off his six points over the next five games. He had a three-game goal scoring streak in games against North Dakota and two against Minnesota-Duluth.
Kovacs ended the month with an assist in WMU’s 3-2 overtime win over No. 3 Michigan in the Great Lakes Invitational Semifinals and then netted the game-winning goal in overtime to claim the GLI Championship over Michigan Tech. He was also one of four Broncos named to the GLI All-Tournament Team.
This is the second straight month in which a Bronco has been named NCHC Player of the Month after Shane Berschbach claimed the award in November after registering 15 points in eight games.
