PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Providence College freshman defenseman Ben Mirageas (Newburyport, Mass.) was tabbed as Pro Ambitions Hockey East Rookie of the Week in an announcement made by the Hockey East Association on Monday (Nov. 13).
A third-round draft pick (77th overall) of the New York Islanders in 2017, Mirageas totaled three goals and two assists in two games against Massachusetts last week, including a career-high four-point performance on Saturday. He notched a power-play goal on Thursday in Amherst, before registering two goals and two assists on Saturday night at Schneider Arena.
Mirageas ranks third among all Hockey East defensemen in scoring with seven points (4-3-7) and leads all NCAA rookie defensemen in power-play goals (4) and game-winning goals (2).
Providence battles Merrimack this upcoming weekend in a home-and-home series beginning Friday night at Schneider Arena before heading to Belfast, Northern Ireland the following week for the 2017 Friendship Four.
