Penn State men’s hockey: Marsh named Big Ten Second Star of the Week

Penn State men’s hockey forward Alec Marsh was chosen as the Big Ten’s Second Star of the Week on Tuesday.

Marsh scored three goals in the Nittany Lions’ series against Notre Dame last weekend. The freshman found the back of the net twice in a 7-4 loss to the Fighting Irish on Friday. He then scored a goal in Penn State’s 5-3 win Saturday.

Michigan’s Kyle Connor was named the First Star of the Week after scoring three goals to go with an assist in a pair of wins over Mercyhurst. Michigan teammate Justin Selman had three assists in the two wins to earn Third Star of the Week honors.

Penn State (2-1-0) hosts American International College at 7 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Saturday.
