BLOOMINGTON, Minn.--Adrian College's Austin Rust (Algonac, Mich./Kirkland Lake Gold Miners, GOJHL) made his debut Wednesday on the D3hockey.com Team of the Week.
The senior right wing is off to a fast start to mirror the Bulldogs' 2-0 record to start the season. Rust led No. 1/2 Adrian to a pair of Northern Collegiate Hockey Association wins on the road--5-1 at Lawrence and 5-0 at Marian--with three goals. He also had a plus-2 and four shots on goal. In the five-goal victory over the Sabres, he had a career-best two goals.
With a team-leading three goals on the season so far, he's almost exceeded the number of goals he potted for all of 2016-17 (4 in 20 games played).
Rust and Co. look to keep rolling this weekend by staying in the NCHA circuit at Finlandia (Friday at 7:15 p.m.) and defending Harris Cup champion St. Norbert (Saturday at 8 p.m. ET).
