Feb 15, 2021

Titans alum Will Riedell was named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association’s (WCHA) Defenseman of the Week for week ending February 7.

Riedell led Lake Superior State to a split against Northern Michigan last weekend. In Saturday’s 5-4 overtime win, Riedell recorded a pair of assists as he registered the secondary assist on the game-tying goal and the lone helper on the game-winning goal. The senior defenseman would add a goal and assist in the Lakers 4-3 overtime loss on Sunday. Riedell scored a goal with 1:01 remaining in regulation to bring the Lakers within a goal and notched the primary assist on the game-tying goal with 12 seconds left in the game. The Greensboro, N.C., native tied for first among WCHA defensemen in points this week with four and ranked second among conference defenders in assists with three. Riedell finished with a +2 rating and recorded eight shots on goal. This is his second career WCHA weekly honor.

Riedell was the Titans captain during the 2016-17 season in which the team went to the East Division’s final. He played a season in half for the Red Buckets having a total of 33 points (10 goals and 23 assists) in 83 games.
