O’Neill ECAC Player of Week
6 Goals Over 3 Games For Captain
ALBANY, N.Y. – Brian O'Neill (Yardley, Pa.) has been named ECAC Hockey Player of the Week after notching six goals and eight points in three Yale games last week.
The Bulldogs' senior captain hit the net four straight times in a 9-3 win over Bentley on Jan. 1. He broke open a 3-3 game in the second period with his consecutive string of tallies. O'Neill made a spectacular move to score against Quinnipiac on Jan. 6 and then found the net again (with two assists) the next night against Princeton.
O'Neill, Yale's Hobey Baker Candidate, leads the squad with 11 goals and 19 points. He is seventh on the school's career points list (136) and is 11th on the career goals list (59).
This is the first conference weekly honor for a Bulldog skater this season. Jeff Malcolm (Lethbridge, Alb.) earned goalie of the week honors in November.
