Feb. 22, 2010

Freshman Eric Delong (Oakville, MB) has been named the Atlantic Hockey rookie of the week following a five point weekend in the Pioneers sweep of Holy Cross.  Delong netted two goals Friday night, including the game winner, as SHU defeated the Crusaders 3-1 on Senior Night.  The rookie followed up his Friday performance with three assists in the series finale as the Pioneers won their fifth straight game.

Delong leads all Atlantic Hockey rookies with 27 points this season, 12 goals and 15 assists.  He also ranks sixth in the NCAA in points per game for rookies at 0.93.  Sacred Heart returns to action this weekend as they close out the regular season on the road against Air Force.
