The faceoff specialist Gerard Arceri continued his dominance at the ‘X,’ as he went 18-20, for a season-high .900-winning percentage. He scooped up a game-best 13 ground balls and scored a goal as well.
Over the last three games, Arceri has scored four goals and added an assist, averaged 13 ground balls a game, and has gone 55-71 at the ‘X’ for a 77.5-winning percentage.

This is the fifth-straight week that the Big Ten has honored Penn State after Arceri’s back-to-back-to-back honors.
