NCAA D1 Stat Freaks – Week 6

This was a huge week for the old stat freaks. Offense and faceoffs really dominated in a way that we haven’t been seeing recently. Well, faceoffs are always strong, but there were some angry players on offense this week. And when you have angry offenses, your goalies will suffer. Even though we’re into the sixth week, there were still plenty of newcomers jumping in on the fun. A few returners also bolstered their standing. So, let’s take a look:

Freak of the Week

Nomination for offense this week are Pat Spencer’s massive day, Jakob Patterson from Albany, Connor Fields from Albany, and Will Sands from Bucknell. Spencer had a hand in nearly every goal Loyola scored while Will Sands *quietly* dropped 10 points, including 3 goals on 7 shots. The Albany duo on the other hand were playing one of the top scoring defenses around and dropped a ton of points without many shots.

Faceoffs featured no perfect games, but Jimmeh Koita played a huge role in upsetting Georgetown; Noah Rak dominating Hartford and Dylan Protesto; and Joe Varello at Navy scoring two point along with winning a ton of faceoffs, many to himself. Slightly related to faceoffs are two LSMs under consideration. Sean Mayle from Denver scored a pair of goals against Ohio State, and John Sexton put on a defensive clinic against Virginia, especially in key moments.

With only four goalies making the list this week, it’s easy to pick a favorite. Army’s AJ Baretto dueled with Jonathan Tesoro from Holy Cross this week in a rare case where both goalies in a game make the list. That almost never happens. But in Barretto’s case, he got the saves he needed, added 3 GBs, 2 CTs, and he then picked up his first career assists. That should help provide some mental relief as he was on the wrong end of a goalie assist just a few weeks against Syracuse, losing in triple overtime in that case.

When making a pick for Freak of the Week, it came down to Koita or Patterson for me. In this case, I’ll go with Jakob Patterson. Koita did have the upset bid helping him out, but Patterson’s 7 goals on 8 shots with an assist is just crazy against one of the best defenses out there. That’s absurdly accurate.
