Awards and Polls

UMass nearly swept the Hockey East weekly awards with Adam Phillips gaining the Rookie of the Week, Paul Dainton named Defensive Player of the Week, and the Minutemen as a whole named Team of the Week.  Mike Pereira was named a Top Performer.


The conference continues to impress nationally with half of Hockey East represented in this week’s USCHO poll.  Things look about the same with the USA Hockey/USA Today poll, with Merrimack yet to crack the Top 15 there.

BU is dropping in the INCH Power Rankings.


The Collegian recaps the Quinnipiac game.

The UMass website has their weekly update of alumni in the pros.  Pretty good week all around for former Minutemen.

T.J. Syner will be conducting a web chat on the Hockey East website tomorrow afternoon.
