Quinnipiac men’s ice hockey junior Travis St. Denis (Trail, British Columbia) was named the ECAC Hockey Player of the Week, as announced by the league on Tuesday, Jan. 13, 2015.
St. Denis led all NCAA Division I men’s ice hockey student-athletes in goals (3) and game-winning goals (2) as the Bobcats pushed their ECAC Hockey winning-streak to four games. St. Denis scored the game-winner in a 4-2 win against RPI on Friday night before scoring twice against Union in a 4-3 victory.
For the second weekend this season, St. Denis scored the game-winner in both games – making him the only player in ECAC Hockey this season to do so. St. Denis was one-of-four ECAC Hockey players to post a multiple-goal game this weekend as well.
For the year, St. Denis leads the Bobcats in goals (11) while also picking up four assists for 15 points in 21 games. His 11 goals are tied for second among the league leaders.
The award is St. Denis’ second of the season after he earned the honor on Nov. 18. This is also the fourth Player of the Week award given to a Quinnipiac player after Tim Clifton was honored last week (Jan. 6) and Michael Garteig was honored on Dec. 30. Garteig was also named the Goalie of the Week on Dec. 30 as well. Landon Smith and Sean Lawrence also earned Rookie of the Week honors this season. St. Denis is also one-of-two ECAC Hockey student-athletes – along with Union’s Mike Vecchione – to win two player of the week awards this season.
