Palecco Gets 2 ECAC Awards image image

Bulldog Rookie Had 5 Points


ALBANY, N.Y.  – Dante Palecco, a Yale freshman forward from Whippany, N.J., hit the net for the first time in his collegiate career last weekend during a two-point team conference weekend. Before the set was complete, he had four goals and five points, good enough to earn ECAC Hockey Offensive Player and Rookie of the Week.

The Bulldogs were down 1-0 to St. Lawrence last Friday at home when Palecco and company went on a run of six straight goals. Three of those tallies came from the rookie forward in the 6-1 win.

Palecco and the Elis are on the road this weekend at Princeton and Quinnipiac.
