Wright picks up his second NE-10 career accolade 

EASTON, Mass. (November 15, 2016) – Stonehill College men's ice hockey freshman Cameron Wright (West Dummerston, Vt./USPHL Premier) has been named the Northeast-10 Conference's Rookie of the Week for the second time this season, the league office announced Monday.


Stonehill began Conference play with a 3-2 victory over Southern New Hampshire University on November 7 and Wright recorded two assists. He picked up the first in the opening period of the game, as Evan Jacques (Norton, Mass./South Shore Kings-EJHL) tied the game at one. The second was registered as Nicholas Godin (New London, N.H./Tabor Academy) picked the tally and the game-winner in the third period.

The Skyhawks also cruised to a 7-1 win over Framingham State University on November 12, as Wright cracked open the game with a goal three minutes into the game. Wright ranks first among freshman in the NE-10 with four points (two goals and two assists).

Wright earned his first NE-10 accolade in the Skyhawks opening weekend of play, when the freshman assisted the team in tallying its first victory by recording his first-career game-winning goal. Stonehill knotted its first contest against Lebanon Valley College in the first period, 1-1, and then the Dutchmen jumped ahead in the second with a one goal lead, 2-1. Stonehill fought back in the final period with two goals, including the Skyhawks first power play goal and the game winner by Wright.

Stonehill (3-1-1, 1-0-0 NE-10) is back in action on Wednesday, November 16 as travels to Manchester, N.H. to face Saint Anselm at Sullivan Arena for a 7:00 p.m. start time.
