of those points came in the third period, good for the national
lead. His production has helped UMass to the best start in the

ranked Yale. He tallied four multi-point games, including two
four-point outings and his first collegiate hat trick. He wrapped the
month with a plus-three rating while winning 66 of 119 faceoffs.

five goals and six assists. He compiled four multi-point games
and registered at least one point in five of six games played. In
his first collegiate contest, the Moscow native lit the lamp three
times for his first hat trick and scored the game-winning goal
at Alabama Huntsville. He currently ranks sixth in the nation in
overall scoring, while his 11 points is the highest total by any
NCAA rookie in 2015-16.
Thatcher Demko - Boston College
Junior; San Diego, California
Demko wrapped the month of October with a 5-1-0 overall record,
allowing just one goal per game and boasting a .957 save
percentage, putting him at the top of all Hockey East goaltenders
in both categories. He pitched three consecutive shutouts Oct.
23-30, becoming just the 21st NCAA goaltender to achieve that
feat. During that stretch of contests, Demko did not allow a goal
for 206:02 of play. His five wins are the most for any Hockey East
netminder and also picked up his fifth-career assist on the first
Eagles goal against No. 5 Denver.
