Bojadzic leads PSU Men’s Ice Hockey past Framingham State

         WATERVILLE VALLEY, N.H. - Senior Deni Bojadzic (Gothenburg, Sweden) scored four goals and assisted on two others Wednesday night, leading Plymouth State University to a 9-1 victory over Framingham State College in an ECAC Northeast Conference men's ice hockey game at Waterville Valley Arena.

         Bojadzic scored a pair of even-strength goals in the first period to help the Panthers to a 4-0 lead, and added a pair of unassisted short-handed goals in the third period.  Bojadzic now leads the team in scoring with 10 goals and eight assists.

         Freshman Sean Buckley (Sagamore, Mass.) contributed to the Panther offense with a pair of goals, his second and third of the season.  Sophomore Drew Erickson (Topsham, Maine) picked up his first career goal, and senior Topo LaCroix (Moretown, Vt.) and freshman Bryan Horrigan (Brookfield, Wis.) also scored once each for the winners.

         PSU led 4-0 after one period and made it 5-0 in the first minute of the second period.  Framingham State got on the board midway through the middle from on a goal by sophomore Jason Akstin (Bridgewater, Mass.) but it was all Panthers the rest of the way.

         Senior goalie Karl Helgesson (Lerum, Sweden) made 27 saves to earn the win in the Panther net. Sophomore Pete Dundovich (Philadelphia, Pa.) made 12 saves in the first period for the Rams, and classmate Andy Joyce (Milford, Mass.) stopped 17 shots over the final two periods.

         PSU, which has won its last three games to improve to 7-8-2 overall and 4-3-1 in the ECAC Northeast, is home again on Saturday for a conference game against Wentworth (6:00 p.m.)  Framingham State, which dropped its eighth in a row to fall to 1-17-0 and 0-6-0 in the league, tries to stop its skid Saturday at home against Worcester State (5:40 p.m.)
