Walker nets 4 Gs on 4 shots, leads NCAA in scoring percentage
Anchorage’s Nolan Walker is the most accurate sniper in college hockey.
The St. Cloud State junior forward leads all D1 skaters with a 38.9 scoring percentage after ripping off four goals on four shots to highlight an 8-2 win over Miami of Ohio in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference.
Walker has now scored seven goals on just 18 shots.
He also furnished an assist to give him his first career five-point night.
Walker tied a NCHC record for most goals and most points in a game.
He showcased some awesome accuracy on his first two goals, twice flicking a wicked wrister to the top corner of the net.
On the first one he walked into the high slot and snapped a shot over the goalie’s right shoulder. The second one came with a defender in his face.
His third goal came off a rebound right in front of the net and his fourth goal came on a beautiful pass that set up at the doorstep. Easy pickings.
Walker doubled his goals total in this one game to give him 7-7-14 scoring totals in 17 games on the season.
He also surpassed the 50-point career benchmark in this his 84th game in a St. Cloud State sweater.
