NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- For the third time in four weeks, Notre Dame freshman forward Shane Walton (San Diego, Calif.) has been honored as the BIG EAST Rookie of the Week.

Walton, the leading scorer for the Irish this season with seven goals and three assists (17 points), tallied the game-tying goal in Notre Dame's 1-1 deadlock with seventh-ranked St. John's on Saturday night. He has scored in all but one game for the 4-1-2 #18 Irish this season with two game-winning scores. Walton tied the score against St. John's at the 17:43 mark off an assist from junior Ryan Cox.

His game-winning goals have come in a 1-0 victory over Northwestern and in a 2-1 overtime decision at Villanova. Walton is the first Irish rookie to score six points in a collegiate debut when he scored six goals and dished off two assists in a 6-1 victory against Valparaiso.
