A couple new faces join an old reliable one this week in being named the Big Ten Three Stars.

Ohio State junior forward Nick Oddo, Minnesota junior forward Sam Warning and Michigan freshman goalie Zach Nagelvoort were honored by the Big Ten for their performances during the week of October 21-27,

Oddo, the first non-Michigan or Minnesota player honored, was named the first star after he scored two goals and an assist while leading the Buckeyes to its first two wins of the season. The first came after Robert Morris led OSU 2-0 after scoring two goals in the first three minutes; kicking off a five goal run. The Omaha native was also the lone Big Ten player to score more than one goal last weekend, which is amazing given both Ohio State and Minnesota scored nine goals

Warning was named the second star for his three assist weekend against Boston College. Minnesota tied the then-#5 Eagles 3-3 Friday night before defeating them 6-1 Sunday.

This is the third straight week that the Chesterfield, MO native, who is tied with BC forward Johnny Gaudreau and Northeastern forward Kevin Roy for the national scoring lead with 12 points, has been honored as either the B1G first or second star.

Nagelvoort made the most of his Yost debut last weekend; becoming the first goalie honored as one of the Three Stars. The Holland, MI native made 52 saves on 55 shots (.945 save percentage) in a 2-1 win over Boston University and a 2-1 loss to UMass-Lowell. Nagelvoort currently leads all Big Ten goalies in save percentage (.947%) and GAA (1.47).

The Big Ten began sponsoring hockey in 2013-14. In lieu of naming a player of the week, the conference is instead naming three stars.

Ohio State hosts Minnesota-Duluth next weekend. Minnesota is off before traveling to Notre Dame while Michigan hosts Michigan Tech.
