EDMONTON – Consistently hitting the scoresheet for the MacEwan Griffins in his rookie ACAC season, Taupert came up big for the team in securing a weekend sweep over the Red Deer College Kings.
In Friday’s 4-2 win in Red Deer, he recorded two assists, including drawing a helper on Zach Webb’s game-winner with 1:54 left in the third period.
Then, on Saturday in Edmonton, he scored a bar-down beauty in double overtime to lift the Griffins to a 4-3 win over their rivals.
For the season, Taupert is now second on the Griffins in scoring with seven goals and 17 points in 16 games. He’s currently the third-highest scoring rookie in the ACAC.
Taupert leads the Griffins into action against cross-town rival Concordia on Friday (7 p.m., Clareview Arena) and Saturday (6 p.m., Downtown Community Arena).
