WAKEFIELD, Mass. -
After scoring a pair of game-winning goals in Providence’s weekend Hockey East Quarterfinals sweep of Maine, senior forward Derek Army (North Kingstown, R.I.)has been named the Warrior Co-Player of the Week by Hockey East (March 17).
On Friday night (March 14), Army scored what proved to be the game winner in Providence’s 3-1 victory over the Black Bears at 6:57 of the first period. Then on Saturday night, Army netted the game-winning goal at 8:31 of the second period as the Friars came back to defeat Maine, 4-2.
Also on Saturday night, Army played in his 146th-consecutive game for the Friars, which tied Tony Zancanaro ’07 for the Providence College consecutive games played record.
