PSC Men's Hockey player earns ECAC Honor

PLYMOUTH, N.H. - A Plymouth State College hockey player has earned Eastern College Athletic Conference honors for his performance for the Panthers last week.

Sophomore Tom Beaulieu (Hudson, NH) was named for the first time this season to the ECAC Northeast Weekly Honor Roll. The forward had a four-point game in a win over Suffolk University last Wednesday. In the game Beaulieu registered his first career hat trick and dished off an assist as the Panther's roared past ECAC Northeast Conference rival Suffolk, 12-3.

PSC is currently 12-9-0 overall, and 9-5-0 in the ECAC Northeast. The Panthers are a good bet to make the playoffs, as they currently are in seventh place with 18 points and three games remaining. As the top eight teams qualify, ninth place Johnson & Wales are four points behind the Panthers.

PANTHER NOTES: PSC dropped a tight game to ECAC Northeast Conference powerhouse Fitchburg State last Saturday night. The Falcons edged out a 4-2 victory over Panthers at Waterville Valley Ice Arena. A third period empty netter closed out the game and sent home a good amount of Plymouth fans unhappy ... Goaltender Larry Forgue (Nashua, NH) is a potential candidate for ECAC Northeast Rookie of the Year. The freshman sensation has collected four ECAC weekly honors, and ranks first in the Northeast with a saves percentage of .930 and a goals against average of 2.23 ... Senior Josh Perry (Falmouth, MA) is tied for third in the ECAC with short handed goals, slapping in two.
