WHO: Mike Knuble
WHY: Knuble had a hat trick in each of the Wolverines' first-round games against Ohio State Friday and
Saturday. He had three goals and one assist against the Buckeyes in Friday's game and scored the first three
of Michigan's four goals Saturday. He was named CCHA Offensive Player of the Week, the third time he's
received this honor during the 1994-95 season.
BACKGROUND: The right wing scored his 33rd goal of the season against Ohio State, surpassing his goal total of
1993-94. Despite missing five games this season, he is among the CCHA goal-scoring leaders. Knuble was a
fourth-round draft choice of the Detroit Red Wings in 1991.
