Guptill scored a goal when Michigan snapped a seven-game winless streak with a 4-3 victory over the Spartans at Yost Ice Arena on Friday and added a pair of assists in a 3-3 tie with MSU Saturday in East Lansing.

The Newmarket, Ontario native has points in five of Michigan's last seven games (5 goals, 3 assists), leads the team in goals (9) and is tied for second in points (15) through 20 games.

Michigan's Phil Di Giuseppe won the rookie of the week award in October.
