Sacred Heart Pioneers to Celebrate High School Days at Men's Hockey

Jan. 13, 2006

Fairfield, CT - All high school boy's hockey teams and high school students in greater Fairfield and New Haven counties are invited to participate in one or all three High School Boy's Hockey Nights at Sacred Heart University on the following dates:

• Friday January 27, 2006 - 7:00 pm #2 Sacred Heart vs. #1 Mercyhurst Milford Ice Pavilion

• Saturday February 4, 2006 - 7:00 pm #2 Sacred Heart vs. Army Milford Ice Pavilion

• Saturday February 25, 2006 - 7:00 pm #2 Sacred Heart vs. #2 Holy Cross Milford Ice Pavilion

The Pioneer men's ice hockey team had a strong first half of the season, compiling an 11-8-1 overall record and 8-6-1 in Atlantic Hockey, currently placing them in second place with Holy Cross. Sacred Heart's non-conference performance included wins over ECAC-members Brown and RPI and a second place finish in the Providence College Hockey Holiday Classic, falling in the championship game to Hockey East-member Providence. The Pioneers attack is led by its top line of junior Pierre-Luc O'Brien, sophomore Alexandre Parent and freshman Bear Trapp, all of whom rank in the top five in scoring in Atlantic Hockey. On defense, the Pioneers are anchored by a New Jersey Devils draft pick in goaltender Jason Smith. Smith ranks 6th in the country in save percentage with a .930 mark. He has also compiled a 2.13 goals against average, the 10th best in the nation.
