3 Stars of the Week: 1/2

January 2, 2012

Stars of the Week

1st Star

Vinny Saponari, F, 2 GP, 2-0-2, -1

It had been a while since Vinny Sap had found the back of the net, but he started off the second half by scoring in consecutive games.  His goal in the Princeton game was a beauty and it gave the Huskies a 3rd period lead.  His Power Play goal against Minnesota was huge as it tied up the game quickly after Minnesota had gone ahead.  Saponari has been leading the team in assists all year, but the Huskies will be hoping Saponari can pitch in with some goals in the second half.

2nd Star

Braden Pimm, F, 2 GP, 2-1-3, +3

Pimm continues to be a force for the Huskies.  On most nights, he is probably the best forward on the team.  He added 2 more goals to his tally against Princeton and then chipped in with an assist against Minnesota.  In his freshman year, Pimm was -3, with a 3-6-9 line.  So far this year, Pimm is a +16 with an 8-6-14 line.  You can already mark him down for Most Improved and if it werent for Chris Rawlings, he’d probably be the MVP too.

3rd Star

Justin Daniels, F, 2 GP, 0-1-1,  GW Shootout Goal

After 7.5 rounds of the shootout had passed with no goals, Justin Daniels stepped up and won it for the Huskies with a nice move that beat the goalie 5 hole.  The goal meant nothing for the standings put it put the Huskies into the Championship game where they beat Minnesota.   The goals have fallen off a bit for Daniels, who has moved down to third line, but he has been seeing more Power Play time as of late and he chipped in with a Power Play assist against Minnesota.  Daniels was also 7-3 on faceoffs in the victory against Minnesota.
