>Miele, LoVerde Named CCHA Players of the Week

>
Farmington Hills, Mich. – Seniors Andy Miele and Vincent LoVerde were named the CCHA’s Offensive and Defensive Players of the Week, respectively.

Coming off a sweep of the Lake Superior State Lakers where the offense exploded for 12 goals and the defense surrendered only two, it’s not entirely surprising to see the RedHawks place two on the season’s final weekly award list.

For Miele, the nation’s leading scorer, it’s the third time he’s won the award this season. The senior assistant captain has recorded a point in 13 consecutive games and became the first RedHawk to surpass 60 points in a single season since 1996-97 when Randy Robitaille had 27-34-61 in his second, and final, season with Miami. Miele has a line of 19-42-61 for the year.

Senior Vincent LoVerde concluded his final regular campaign by capturing the CCHA’s Defensive Player of the Week award for the first time in his career. The rugged defenseman from Chicago has been a rock of consistency for Miami, and along with Will Weber and Joe Hartman, is a big reason why Miami once again led the CCHA in fewest goals against.

>Randy Robitaille Headed Overseas

>SF Sport is reporting tonight that MU alum Randy Robitaille has signed with Hockey Club Lugano. HC Lugano is based in Lugano, Switzerland and is one of the more successful hockey clubs in the Swiss National “A” League, having won seven national championships, the last of which, in 2006.

I think, on all accounts, this was a good move for Randy. As we all know, he’s been well traveled in the NHL through his career and, obviously, wanted to continue playing hockey. Considering his age and skill-set in the NHL, this was an outstanding move for Randy, as I for one, would have been surprised if he were signed by a team here in North America.

Best of luck to Randy. Hopefully, he’ll find a few more good years with Lugano.
