Patrick Knowlton (Colorado Springs, CO) of the men's ice hockey team has been named the Enterprise Rent-A-Car/Sacred Heart student athlete of the week for December 28-January 3. Knowlton posted five points in the Pioneers weekend sweep of Air Force. The junior forward netted a goal in each game of the series with the Falcons, including the empty night goal Saturday night that sealed the win.
Saturday night Knowlton assisted on Nick Johnson's (Windsor, CT) game winning goal in the second period. He would supply the dagger with 2:22 remaining in regulation, sliding the puck into the empty to give SHU the 4-1 victory.
Knowlton came out hot Sunday night and had a hand in all of the Pioneers first three goals. He provided a pair of assists to Dave Jarman (Toronto, ON) who notched Sacred Heart's first two goals. The junior made it a 3-1 affair late in teh second period with his fifth goal of the season.
The Pioneers return to action Friday night as they take on Army at the Milford Ice Pavilion. Game time is set for 7:05 pm.
