The junior from Grand Rapids, Michigan (Forest Hills Central HS) is claiming the award for the second time this season and the fourth time in his career.
Kuiper totaled six goals and six assists last week to help the Flying Dutchmen record two victories that earned them their second outright MIAA regular-season championship in a row.
During a 9-8 overtime victory against Albion College, Kuiper finished with three goals and one assist.
Kuiper matched his career-high with five assists during a 21-10 victory against Kalamazoo College on Saturday. He also scored one goal.
Kuiper has 34 goals and a career-high 31 assists this season.
