WINTHROP, Mass.- Sacred Heart University Men's Ice Hockey freshman forward Austin Magera was named Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Month for his impressive play during the month of February. This is the first Rookie of the Month Award any Pioneer has received this award in the past three seasons.
Magera had a truly remarkable February as he tallied seven goals, two assists for a total of nine points. He currently leads the team in goals with 13, fourth on team in assists with 12 and leads the team in points with 25. Magera's effort during the month of February propelled the Pioneers to a 7-1-1 record which eventually helped the Pioneers land a first round bye into the Atlantic Hockey Playoffs. Magera and the rest of the Pioneer Men's Ice Hockey team look to build off the momentum when they face RIT in the quarterfinals of the Atlantic Hockey Tournament beginning Wednesday, March 13 at 7:05 p.m. at Webster Bank Arena.
