Senior forward Patrick Brosnihan (Worcester, Mass.) was named ECAC Hockey Player of the Week today after netting two big goals on the road last weekend in a pair of wins for the No. 7 Yale men's hockey team.
Brosnihan, who has five goals and seven points this year, scored goals in both games last weekend including the game-winner against RPI, a one-timer off a Charles Brockett feed.
His goal at Union, which put the Blue ahead to stay in the first period, finished off his best weekend as a collegian. Brosnihan, Yale's tallest player at 6-foot-5, earned his first conference honor.
First-place Yale (19-5-1, 14-3-1 ECAC)travels to Quinnipiac and Princeton this weekend for a pair of conference games.
