University of Denver left winger Jazon Zucker is the WCHA Rookie of the Week for Dec. 7, 2010 as a result of his outstanding efforts in a two-game road series at Minnesota Duluth last weekend.

A 5-10, 175-pound freshman from Las Vegas, Zucker helped Denver to a two-game split at then No. 1-ranked Minnesota Duluth. He netted his first collegiate three-goal hat trick and four-point effort, including an assist on the game-winning goal, to help boost the Pioneers to a 5-4 overtime victory over the Bulldogs last Friday. He also added a team-leading nine shots on goal in the series, eight hits, three blocked shots and had +2 plus/minus rating.

A draftee of the NHL's Minnesota Wild, Zucker ranks first in goal scoring in league play with 12 in 12 games and is third in scoring overall among league rookies with 18 points (12g, 6a) in 18 games.

Congrats to him. Can't say enough about Zucker's performance as a rookie. You can't take your eyes off him when he's on the ice.

He's the easily the most promising freshman to wear the Crimson and Gold since Tyler Bozak, and probably the most entertaining Pioneer freshman since Craig Redmond, who tore up the WCHA as a 17-year old defenseman with 54 points.
