Pittsburgh, Pa. - Zac Lynch has had several memorable moments during his three seasons on the Robert Morris University men's hockey team, but he's never had a stretch like this.
Lynch, who has at least two points in six consecutive games, was named Atlantic Hockey Conference Travel Team USA Player of the Week on Tuesday morning. The league office honored the junior from Shaler, Pa., for his six points (3g, 3a) during RMU's two-game sweep of Air Force in Colorado Springs last weekend.
After scoring a goal and assisting on another in the Colonials' 5-4 comeback win Friday, Lynch enjoyed his third career four-point game in a 5-2 victory at Cadet Ice Arena the following night. The 6-foot, 190-pound winger dropped two goals and two assists on Air Force in the Saturday win, combining with linemate Cody Wydo on all four of those scoring plays.
Lynch, a Shaler graduate is on pace to at least match his 47-point sophomore season, accumulating 34 points (15g, 19a) in 28 games thus far as a junior. His production shifted into overdrive Jan. 16-17, when he had a three-goal, three-assist output during a sweep of American International at 84 Lumber Arena. Lynch added four points (1g, 3a) the following weekend at Holy Cross; he has a total of 16 points (7g, 9a) during RMU's current six-game winning streak.
