O'Neill Named ECAC Rookie of Week

Jan. 12, 2009

Yale freshman Brian O'Neill (Yardley, Pa.) was named ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week today after leading the Bulldogs with three goals in a pair of victories last weekend.

The rookie forward had the game-winner in a 2-1 win at No. 15 Dartmouth on Jan. 9 before adding a pair of scores in a 6-2 victory at Harvard the night after.

O'Neill, fourth on the team with six goals, now has four over the last three games. His two GWG are second on the team and he is 18th among Division I rookies at .80 points per game.

O'Neill and his teammates, who have won four straight and seven of nine, are home this weekend to face Clarkson and St. Lawrence in a pair of 7 p.m. games. Tickets are still available for both, but call the Yale Ticket Office (203.432.1400) now to avoid the game-nigh rush.
