George Named Player of the Week by Atlantic Hockey Association

(Fairfield, CT) - Drew George (Regina, SK) has been named Travel Team USA Atlantic Hockey Association Player of the Week, announced Monday afternoon.

The freshman right-winger scored four goals and registered five total points in two games against UConn this past weekend.  He scored SHU's first hat trick of the season in a 5-5 tie at UConn Friday night, tying the game with his third goal of the night with less than a minute remaining in regulation.  His third-period goal on Sunday night also tied the game and set the stage for SHU's dramatic 2-1 overtime victory over the Huskies.

George extended his point-streak to seven straight games, with seven goals and four assists for 11 points over that span.  He is now tied for the team lead with 11 points.
