FAIRBANKS - Alaska completed its Western Collegiate Hockey Association series sweep of the visiting Alabama Huntsville Chargers with a 4-0 win on Saturday night at the Carlson Center.

Nolan Huysmans scored the eventual game-winning goal, a power play goal, at the six minute mark of the first period to give the Nanooks (10-8-0, 5-7-0 WCHA) the lead. Tyler Morley would score less than two minutes later before Josh Atkinson and Marcus Basara would add power play tallies of their own.

Davis Jones made 14 saves and earned his third shutout of the season.

Huysmans tapped home after a scrum in front of the net, as the Nanooks piled on the pressure generated on the power play. Parakyo's drive from the point did not get through the traffic in front of the net, but the puck did find its way to Huysmans who was able to give Alaska the lead.

Moments later, Brandon Morley fended off a defender in the corner and fed his brother, who was able to double Alaska's advantage as he roofed one over the glove of Matt Larose. The Nanooks would take that 2-0 lead into the locker room at the end of the period.

In the second, Josh Atkinson scored Alaska's second power play goal as he rifled one into the lower corner of the goal after some good puck movement between Huysmans and Trevor Campbell. Atkinson's third goal of the season came at the 9:07 mark of the second and was scored during the Nanooks' five minute power play.

Alaska would add a fourth goal midway through the third period as Parayko and T. Morley fed Basara who notched his eighth goal of the campaign for the Nanooks third power play goal of the night. Overall, Alaska went 3-7 on the power play and killed off the two penalty opportunites that UAH had.

Jones had another quiet night in net, particularly in the first two periods where he only say eight total shots. But he was alert throughout and made several impressive saves to earn the win.

The Nanooks are now idle until the New Year, when they host Ferris State on January 2 and 3 at the Carlson Center.
