He recently stretched his scoring streak to 11 games. Included is a pair of four-point games, against North Dakota and Dartmouth.
Anas led all freshmen in points (16), points per game (1.60) and tied for most goals (6) and assists (10), while guiding the Bobcats to a 7-1-2 record. He began the month the same way he ended it, earning ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week honors. He recorded a five-point weekend in road wins at Colgate and Cornell.
