Waldschmidt, a junior, scored four goals and had nine assists in four games in the North Division for the Tigers, who hope to challenge for the Penguins Cup.

 “We’ve had a good season so far,” he said. “I just hope to finish strong and win the Penguin Cup.”

Giunta, a senior, had six goals and 12 points in five games for the Mustangs in December.
