The BG Men’s Ice Hockey team will travel to Columbus, Ohio to play the Ohio State University Buckeyes Tuesday night at 7:05 p.m.

Freshman goaltender Matt Tomkins made 21 saves to earn his second collegiate victory. In the win, skaters Sam Jardine and Anthony Greco each had two assists. Their four goals were scored by Nick Schilkey, Drew Brevig, Tyler Lundey and Justin DaSilva. Ohio State also converted two of six power play chances.

Senior forward Bryce Williamson is tied second overall in the Western Collegiate Hockey Association for scoring. Over the first five games he has seven points. Williamson has scored at least one goal in three consecutive games for the Falcons.

Junior forward Dan DeSalvo leads the WCHA in assists with five and he averages one assist per game. DeSalvo had four assists in the Falcons’ last game , giving him a career high for assists in a game.
