Chris Rawlings, G, 73 saves, 5 GA
No team should expect to compete giving up 70+ shots in a weekend, but this Northeastern team does it consistently. Chris Rawlings, yet again, kept this team in the game twice this weekend. He didn’t get off to the best start, but he has really picked it up. As the team has slumped, he has come on and been a one of the few bright spots.
Garrett Vermeersch, 2 GP, 0-1-1, +1
Vermeersch’s NU career hasn’t gone according to plan. A promising freshman season had been followed up with a downward slide on the line chart. Vermeersch entered this weekend at a career -28 over 2+ years. And despite seeing some PP time, he has been a 4th liner since about midway through last year. But this weekend, he put up 2 good performances. Friday night, in limited action, he put up an assist. He was rewarded Saturday with a move up to 3rd line and he didn’t disappoint. He missed wide on his one good chance, but he made his presence felt defensively. He cause multiple turnovers in the neutral zone and he showed a willingness to share the puck. Hopefully this is the beginning of a long overdue turn around for the Junior.
Cody Ferriero, F, 2 GP 1-0-1,
Ferriero picked up his first goal (and point) of the season on Friday. It was a big goal for the Huskies and a big one for Ferriero as it came against the team he originally committed to, BC. Ferriero had a slow start last year and after missing much of the early season due to suspension, he is yet to get going this year. Hopefully he can build on this goal and finally get off the ground points-wise for NU.
