NIAGARA UNIV. N.Y. - After running the longest point-scoring streak of anyone this season to seven games, Alabama-Huntsville hockey freshman Matt Järvinen (Espoo, Finland) has been named College Hockey America's Rookie of the Week as well as being named the league's February nominee for the Hockey Commissioner's Assocation National Rookie of the Month as announced by the league on Monday.
Järvinen opened up the rare 3-game series at Niagara with a goal and assist on Friday night and then tallied an assist in Saturday night's contest to run his streak to seven games. The 7-game streak is the longest by a Charger since the 2004-05 season when former UAH standout Jared Ross put together an 11-game run.
The Finland native tied for the team lead in scoring in the month of February scoring a pair of goals and adding five assists in six games of action.
