Michigan State forward Gavin O’Connell (Plymouth, Minn.) has been named the Big Ten First Star of the Week, as announced by the Conference office. O’Connell, one of two freshmen to play every game for MSU this season, had a pair of two-goal games in Michigan State’s series at No. 13 Ohio State last weekend to open Big Ten play. Seven of MSU’s 12 goals against the Buckeyes came from freshmen, led by O’Connell’s four.
