Once again Minnesota and Michigan are the only two teams to have players named Big Ten Three Stars.

Minnesota's Sam Warning and Justin Kloos and Michigan's Tyler Motte were honored by the conference for the week of October 14-20. Warning was named the First Star. The two freshmen forwards -  Motte and Kloos - were named the Second and Third Star, respectively.

It's the second consecutive honor for Warning, a junior forward, after he was named the Big Ten Second Star last week. This time around the Chesterfield, MO native scored five points (3 G - 2 A) in two victories for the Gophers.

With the road sweep against the Beavers, Minnesota improved to 4-0-0 on the year. Warning, who has scored in each game this season, has nine points (5 G - 4 A) and is currently tied with Northeastern's Kevin Roy for the national scoring lead.

Motte, a Chicago Blackhawks draft pick, scored the overtime winner Saturday for Michigan in the Wolverines' 3-2 road win against New Hampshire. The St. Clair, MI native has scored in three straight games and is one of three freshmen who have more than 3 goals. Michigan is 2-0-1 when Motte has scored.

Kloos scored five points (1 G - 4 A) last weekend, which includes his first career 3 point game in Saturday's win over Bemidji State. Along with linemate Taylor Cammarata (4 points last weekend) and Hudson Fasching (3 points), Kloos is one part of a freshman class that has played a big role for Minnesota early in the.season Kloos (2 G - 4 A) and Fasching are currently tied for the Big Ten freshman scoring lead with 6 points.
