Yale Senior Gets 2nd ECAC Honor

ALBANY, N.Y. - Yale senior forward Broc Little (Rindge, N.H.) has been named ECAC Hockey MLX Skates Player of the Week after leading the Bulldogs to a conference quarterfinal series win over St. Lawrence last weekend at Ingalls Rink.


Little accumulated seven points, including two goals, as his Bulldogs (25-6-1) won the last two games and advanced to this weekend's championships at Atlantic City. This is his second player of the week honor this winter.


He is second on the team with 17 goals and is third with 39 points. Little, fifth on Yale's career goals list with 70, had his third career hat trick (3-1-4) against Holy Cross on Jan. 2. Twelve of his 22 assists have been primary ones.


Little (126 gp, 70-68-138), who has 12 more points than games played, led the 2009-10 Bulldogs with 27 goals, a Yale record for juniors, while leading all of Division I in goals per game (.79). He was second on the team with 41 points and garnered numerous post-season honors, including RBK Second-Team All-America, first-team All-ECAC, All-Ivy and All-New England.


Little, a political science major, has shown the same dedication in the classroom with a 3.1 GPA and three-time ECAC Hockey All-Academic Team status. He was also named one of the 20 candidates for the Lowe's Senior CLASS Award in hockey, which honors student-athletes who excel both on and off the ice.
