Dec. 22, 2008

Fairfield, CT - Senior Dave Grimson (Mozart, SK) has been named the Atlantic Hockey Player of the Week for the week of December 15-21. In addition, Grimson was also selected as the Enterprise Rent-A-Car/Sacred Heart University Student-Athlete of the Week for the same time period.

Grimson factored in on both SHU goals in Friday's tie against Colorado College. The senior captain scored the first goal, a power-play slap-shot in the first period, and then assisted on the game-tying goal early in the third period. Grimson is tied for second on the team in scoring with two goals and seven assists, nine points on the year, and is sixth in the AHA in scoring by defensemen. He is first Pioneer to win a league award this season.

The Pioneers are idle until January 2nd when they open a weekend series against Niagara at the Milford Ice Pavilion.
