Ross Armour earns WCHA Rookie of the Week

Former Smoke Eater Ross Armour tallies 3-point game for Bemidji State vs Anchorage to merit honour

Bemidji State Beavers centerman Ross Armour was named Western Collegiate Hockey Association Rookie of the Week on Monday for his performance in last weekend’s series against Alaska Anchorage.

The freshman recorded a career-high three points in the Beavers’ 5-1 win Friday over the Seawolves. Armour became the second BSU player to notch three assists in a game, including his helper on the game-winning goal.

The outing more than doubled the Rossland native’s season total to five points as he finished the weekend with three shots on goal and a plus-3 rating, but still looking for his first goal.

Armour played three season with the BCHL Trail Smoke Eaters registering 45 goals and 138 points in 139 games, and one with the KIJHL’s Beaver Valley Nitehawks as a 16-year-old tallying 14 goals and 57 points in 49 games.

Along with Armour, Bowling Green’s Lukas Craggs was named WCHA Offensive Player of the Week, Northern Michigan’s Philip Beaulieu earned Defenseman of the Week and Alabama Huntsville’s Mark Sinclair nabbed Goaltender of the Week.

Bemidji State dropped to 8-8-2 overall and 6-5-1-0 in WCHA play after Saturday’s 2-1 overtime loss to Anchorage.

The Beavers, now on their holiday break, will return to action with a Dec. 29-30 road trip to Colorado Springs, Colo. to meet Air Force in a non-conference series. BSU will resume WCHA play with a series at Bowling Green, Jan. 3-4, to conclude the four-game road trip.
