In NCAA action, Blake Geoffrion had a big weekend recording a goal and two assists as the University of Wisconsin split its two game series against Minnesota Duluth.

Sonin has recorded five goals and nine points with a +7 rating over his last 11 games, after posting one goal and eight points in the season's first 33 games.
