Rooney named NE-10 Player of the Week


For the second time this season, Canton native Bryan Rooney has been named the Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Week for his efforts on the ice as a member of the Stonehill College men’s hockey team.

The senior captain was recognized last week after fueling Stonehill’s 4-3 comeback win over Westfield State with his second multi-goal game of the season. Rooney gave Stonehill a 2-1 lead 7:27 into the second period with his first score of the game, and then put the Skyhawks ahead for good with his game-winner with under three minutes remaining in the contest.

Rooney now ranks second on the team and fifth in the NE-10 with 13 points on eight goals and five assists. His goal total leads the team and is second in the conference behind only Joe Collins of Southern New Hampshire University.

Rooney has now won NE-10 Player of the Week honors four times in his career, after doing so twice last season and once earlier this season. As a sophomore in 2011-12, Rooney finished 11th overall in the NE-10 with eight goals. As a junior last season, he doubled his goal total to 16 while also adding 16 assists. His 32 total points was good for second overall in the NE-10.

The Skyhawks (6-6-0) are off until January 10, when they travel to Brockport, New York, for a contest with the College of Brockport. Stonehill will be back at the Foxboro Sports Center on January 25 when it plays host to Southern New Hampshire University in NE-10 action.
