Sturos’ goal lifted the Michigan Tech Huskies to a 2-1 win over Alabama-Huntsville in the first-ever, regular-season, 3-on-3, double-overtime game in Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) history.
As per NCAA rules, goals scored in 3-on-3 play in overtime will not count in any player’s season scoring numbers. The NCAA is using 3-on-3 overtime for the first time this season.
Sturos, a Nanaimo Clippers alum, also had a goal on the man advantage in the Huskies’ 7-3 win over Alabama-Huntsville the night before.
With Nanaimo in the 2012-13 season, Sturos scored 25 goals and 32 assists for 57 points in 56 games. Now a senior with Michigan Tech, this is the fourth WCHA weekly award for the 6-foot-2, 185-pound native of Brighton, Mich. He won the conference’s rookie of the week nod three times in 2013-14.
