After a two-goal, two-assist weekend, Wisconsin sophomore Nic Kerdiles was named the Big Ten's First Star of the week.

Wisconsin sophomore Nic Kerdiles has been honored as the Big Ten's First Star of the week for his play last weekend in a sweep over Penn State.

A sophomore center, Kerdiles notched a goal and an assist in Friday's 7-1 win. In the finale on Saturday, the Irvine, Calif., native scored the game-winning goal in the third period in addition to an assist he registered earlier in the game.

With two points in each game over the weekend, Kerdiles has now registered multiple points in three straight games. Kerdiles has five multi-point games on the season and 15 in 44 career games for the Badgers.

In 12 games this season, Kerdiles has seven goals and seven assists, which ranks him second on the team in both categories.

The Big Ten's Second Star of the week was Michigan State's Jake Hildebrand, who notched 44 saves in a tie and shootout win over Minnesota Friday.

The Third Star of the week went to Minnesota's Justin Kloos. The freshman center registered a goal and an assist Friday vs. Michigan State, as well as an assist in a 3-2 win Saturday.

Past Wisconsin Big Ten Stars of the week:

Nov. 5: Tyler Barnes (First Star), Joe Faust (Third Star)
Nov. 19: Joel Rumpel (First Star)
