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.

    Mr. “Fan of the Game”!

    Mauldin with 4 points against the pathetic Wild!


    • The fan of the game prize money is very disappointing.

      The Wild beat writer called them a joke on twitter last night.

    Hey with the hot start does anybody think pereira might make the world junior team? and would that put him out of 2 or 3 games for us?


    • Great question. I was wondering if maybe he caught the eye of the junior team myself yesterday.

      The games are 12/26 to 1/5. So that would likely only have him missing for the games out in Wisconsin but back to play against Northeastern on 1/7.

      The US team will be announced December 7th.
