INCH Player of the Week
Presented by The INCH Shop

Sophomore | Forward
Vail, Colo.

Colorado College

His Statistics: 2 GP, 4-1—5,

His Impact: If asked to name Colorado College's most dangerous offensive player, Mike Testwuide would probably not immediately come to mind. That's no knock on Testwuide, a serviceable sophomore forward who entered last weekend's non-conference series against Clarkson with two goals and four assists in 18 games this season.

The Golden Knights certainly know his name after the Vail, Colo. native scorched them in the Tigers' back-to-back thrashings at World Arena. Testwuide's two goals Friday were biggies. The first midway through the second period — the first of four unanswered goals CC would score — evened the score at 2-2. The second came on a power play less than two minutes in the third to give the hosts a 4-2 lead.

In Saturday's 6-1 romp, Testwuide notched the eventual game-winner 12 minutes into the first period with a power-play goal, then scored just under five minutes into the second to stretch the lead to 3-0. He also set up teammate Bill Sweatt's second-period goal that gave the Tigers a 4-0 edge.

His Runners-Up: Josh Kassel (Army), Ben Scrivens (Cornell), Bryan Lerg (Michigan State), Cale Tanaka (Alabama-Huntsville), Matt Taormina (Providence)
