Jobst, the Buckeyes’ captain and a native of Speedway, Indiana, had two goals and two assists in the series vs. the Badgers.

This is the fifth career weekly honor for Jobst, who was a 2017 Second Team All-American and First Team All-Big Ten selection and a Big Ten All-Freshman Team choice in 2016.

In the opener against the Badgers Friday, Jobst scored at 14:31 of the second period to tie the game at one, with his goal making the SportsCenter Top 10 Plays of the Day. With time winding down in the third and the game tied at two, Jobst tallied the gamewinner with 1:16 left in regulation. Saturday, Jobst assisted on Buckeyes goals 24 seconds apart in the third period that made it a one-goal game. He was part of the Buckeye penalty kill that was 5-for-5 in the series and posted a combined +3 mark.
