David Goodwin Named Big Ten’s Second Star of the Week

David Goodwin, the Penn State sophomore forward from Des Peres, Missouri, was awarded the Big Ten’s Second Star of the Week award for his performance last week in helping lead Penn State to a four-point weekend in a two-game series against Michigan State.

Goodwin had a phenomenal weekend against Michigan State, scoring the game-tying goal in the third period on Friday night to salvage a tie for the Nittany Lions before a shootout loss. In Saturday’s 5-2 win, he one-upped himself by scoring the game-winning goal while also adding two assists for good measure.

Goodwin has been red-hot lately, with goals in four consecutive games and eight total points in that four-game stretch. This is Goodwin’s second career weekly award, and first of the season. On the year, Goodwin is tied for second on the team with 10 goals, second on the team in assists with 12, and third on the team in overall points with 22 in 20 games. He is one of only three players on the team averaging over a point per game, and he has stepped his game up in Big Ten play with 5 goals and 7 assists in eight conference games.

Goodwin and the rest of the hockey team play next at home against Northern Michigan at 7 p.m. on Friday and 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, where they will debut special THON jerseys and hold a teddy bear toss to benefit Four Diamonds Families.
