RADJA NAMED NATIONAL PLAYER OF THE MONTH FOR FEBRUARY
WAKEFIELD, Mass.— Senior forward Mike Radja (Yorkville, Ill.) of the University of New Hampshire men's ice hockey team has been named the Hockey Commissioners’ Association National Division I Player of the Month for February. The assistant captain registered a point in all eight games, including five multi-point outings, in helping the Wildcats to a 7-0-1 record.

The 6-foot, 190-pound forward recorded three games with three points, including a hat trick in a 3-2 win at Maine on Feb. 8 and a goal and two assists in a 4-1 win the following night. On Feb. 16 he produced three points, including the winning goal for the first-place Wildcats in a 4-3 win over Providence.

Radja reached the 100-point and 50-goal milestones for his career with a 5-11-16 scoring line during February. He is fourth in Hockey East play in scoring with 13-16-29 and his 13 goals in conference play rank tied for second. Radja’s 1.30 points-per game average ranks him ninth in the nation and his six game-winning goals stand second nationally.

Radja and the top-seeded Wildcats will play host to eighth-seeded Massachusetts in a best-of-three series in the Hockey East Quarterfinal round on March 14-16. All the games are slated for a 7 p.m. puck drop at Whittemore Center.
