Thanks to a three-game sweep of the Coulee Region Chill last week, the Minnesota Wilderness stayed in the top spot in the Midwest Division. Forward Darian Romanko, 20, had a big week for the Wilderness as the native of Shoreview, Minnesota, chimed in with six points in the three wins, which included three goals (all game-winners), three assists and a +2 rating. On Thursday, Romanko (6'1"/195) had the game-winning goal and two assists in a 6-4 home win. On Saturday, Romanko scored the game-winning goal midway through the 3rd period in a 3-2 win. On Sunday, Romanko had the overtime-winning goal and an assist in a 4-3 win, completing the three-game sweep. For the season, Romanko is 2nd on the Wilderness in team scoring with 28 points in 31 games played and leads the team with 16 goals. "Darian was a horse for us playing seven games in 12 nights. He is logging some huge minutes for us and has come through with some very timely goals," said Wilderness head coach Corey Millen.
