WALTHAM, Mass.- Sacred Heart University freshman goaltender Josh Benson was named the Atlantic Hockey Association Rookie of Week for his play against Robert Morris this past weekend. This is Benson's first award as well as the first weekly award to be given to a SHU hockey player.
Benson had an impressive weekend as he tallied a total of 48 saves in goal in the two game series against Robert Morris. He only allowed a total of two goals in the series which allowed SHU to win the first game as he only allowed one to help give the Pioneers a 2-1 victory over the Colonials for the first time in program history.
The Pioneers return to action this Friday when they travel up to Rochester, N.Y. for a series at RIT. Puck-drop is set for 7:05 p.m.
