Michael Joyaux (3) joins his teammates in celebrating a goal earlier this season

Western Michigan junior defensemen Michael Joyaux has been named the NCHC Bauer Defenseman of the Week after the Broncos split its series this past weekend with No. 4 ranked St. Cloud St.

The Broncos started out the series on a rough note being defeated 5-1 on Friday against St. Cloud St. However, WMU would rebound on Saturday night, winning the series finale 5-4 in overtime. In the finale, Joyaux scored three goals, becoming the first defensemen in NCHC history to earn a hat trick.

Joyaux’s first goal was to tie the game up for the Broncos at 1-1 about halfway through the period. With 12:54 seconds left in the second period, he scored again to give WMU a 3-2 over St. Cloud St. The goal that cemented Joyaux in history was the goal he scored to tie the game up 4-4 with 18 seconds left to force an overtime period.

Joyaux shot the puck six times and WMU was +2 with him on the ice. Joyaux now has four goals on the season, which is a new career high.
