Quinnipiac Bobcats freshman Odeen Tufto has been named the ECAC player and rookie of the week as announced in a press release from the league office. Tufto in two games played this past weekend had a goal and four assists for the Bobcats as they lost to Dartmouth and tied Harvard. This is the second ECAC rookie of the week for the Chaska, Minnesota native as he won the award back on October 17th and first player of the week honors for him. He is the first Quinnipiac player to win dual awards since former Bobcat Thomas Aldworth won player and rookie of the week honors back on October 20, 2015.

Tufto with 25 points (5 goals, 20 assists) is leading the ECAC in points for a freshman and only second in the country for rookie scoring behind Michigan State's Mitchell Lewandowski who has 27 points. He is only the Quinnipiac player currently averaging more than a point per game (1.09) and is also leading the team in plus/minus at a plus nine. He has one game winning goal this season back on October 14th when his overtime winner gave Quinnipiac a 3-2 win over Vermont.
