NEWPORT, R.I. – Salve Regina University men’s ice hockey forward Evan Schmidbauer has earned his third straight Rookie of the Week award for the Eastern College Athletic Conference Northeast.
Schmidbauer scored the only goals for Salve Regina versus Becker to help the Seahawks to a 2-0 win over the Hawks. Schmidbauer then assisted on the game-tying goal with three seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime against Nichols.
Junior forward Marc Biggs (Plano, Texas) also made honor roll for the week. Biggs netted a pair of goals against Nichols, including a first period goal to give Salve Regina a 2-1 lead and a game-tying goal with three seconds remaining in regulation to force overtime.
Salve Regina next plays Western New England on Thursday February 19 at 7:10 p.m. The Seahawks can clinch the number two seed with a win, tie, or Johnson and Wales loss on that night.
