Dan DeSalvo is being rewarded for playing consistently well this season.
The Bowling Green junior center is tied for the Western Collegiate Hockey Association scoring lead entering this weekend's series against the University of Alaska.
The 5-foot-8, 170-pounder has 22 points to tie Alaska's Cody Kunyk and Ferris State's Garrett Thompson.
DeSalvo has played in all 24 games, totaling six goals and a league-best 16 assists. He also has an on-ice rating if plus-8, third best on the team.
"I'm going out there with confidence," DeSalvo said. "Improving my consistency is something the coaches and I have talked about, and that's been a focus for me.
"I try to play my best every time I'm out there."
DeSalvo's success has helped BG survive the season-long injury absence of Ryan Carpenter, the team's No. 1 center and of the league's best players. DeSalvo's ice time has increased significantly in Carpenter's absence.

KENT — A strong second half helped the Bowling Green State University women’s basketball team beat Kent State, 58-39 Thursday.
After a slow first half, the Falcons were 11-of-24 (45.8 percent) from the field, and 12-of-12 from the free-throw line in the second half, while scoring 38 points.
‘‘I knew we would be rusty. The big key was I wanted to have patience, and I wanted them to have patience as well because I didn’t know if shots would fall. It took a while for them to start falling,’’ BG head coach Jennifer Roos said. ‘‘The best formula for that is to get out and run, and we got some easy fast-break points, and second-chance points in the second half and that made a big difference.’’

The 2-3 zone defense has been used by the Bowling Green Falcon men's basketball team to frustrate opponents on numerous occasions during Louis Orr's tenure as head coach.
On Wednesday night, Eastern Michigan threw its version of the 2-3 zone at the Falcons, and it wasn't pretty for Bowling Green.
In the Mid-American Conference opener for both teams, the Falcons struggled to score and the Eagles were able to carve out a 56-51 victory.  PHOTO GALLERY
''The zone was tough. They have such a small, athletic team with a 7-footer to protect the paint, and it's hard to get easy looks,'' BG's Richaun Holmes said. ''At the same time, I feel like we had a few shots that we just didn't convert on.
''They play really good half-court defense. I'll give them credit for their zone, but most of it is on us for not knocking down the shots we had.''
