Final Regular Season Home Game Next
SEATTLE - The #7 Washington Huskies return home for their penultimate regular season game and final regular season home game. The Huskies will host the UCLA Bruins on Thursday, April 8 at 4:00 pm on the Pac-12 Network.
The Huskies have won four straight games against UCLA, their second-longest winning streak ever against the Bruins. If Washington wins this weekend, the Huskies will tie their all-time longest winning streak against UCLA of five games, set from 1998-2001. Washington is 7-2-0 against UCLA since the start of the 2016 season.
Charlie Ostrem picked up his seventh assist last week, assisting on Lucas Meek's gamewinner against Cal. Ostrem now has the most assists by a Husky defender since 2013, when Michael Harris recorded ten. Ostrem leads the Pac-12 in assists: Harris is the only other defender to lead the conference in assists in the last decade. Only two players in the nation, Oakland's Noah Jensen and San Jose State's Rudy Castro, have more assists than Ostrem this year.
Ostrem needs one more point to make it ten on the season. Ostrem would join Ethan Bartlow, Justin Schmidt, Taylor Peay, and Michael Harris as the only Husky defenders to have double-digit points in a season in Jamie Clark's ten years as head coach.
Dylan Teves converted his fourth penalty kick against Cal, making him a perfect 4-for-4 this year. Teves has scored more PKs this year than any Husky in the last 20 years, with penalty-kick statistics not available before 2000. No other Husky has ever gone better than 3-for-3 without missing a PK. Three of Teves' four PKs have gone as gamewinners. Teves also cracked the 15-point mark with that goal against Cal. This is the fifth straight year Washington has had at least one player record 15 points. A Husky has done so in ten of the last 11 years.
Sam Fowler has now allowed one or fewer goals in 19 of his 23 career games, including eight of ten games this season. Fowler is second in the Pac-12 in GAA at 0.65 this season. His next shutout will give him 14 in his career, the most by a Husky keeper since Ryan Herman recorded his 18th in 2015.
Kendall Burks is the only Husky to have played every minute of every game thus far this season. Burks would be the first Husky in over five years to play every minute of every game if he plays the full 90 in each of Washington's final two games.
