PSU Men’s Ice Hockey player receives MASCAC honor

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. - The senior captain on the Plymouth State University men's ice hockey team was honored Monday with the top weekly honor from the Massachusetts State College Athletic Conference (MASCAC).

            Senior Chris Chambers (Crofton, Md./DeMartha Cath/Boston Harbor Wolves) was named MASCAC Men's Ice Hockey Player of the Week.  He was a key offensive player as PSU picked up a pair of victories over Southern New Hampshire University and Framingham State College.  The honor comes on the heels of Chambers being named to the MASCAC Honor Roll two weeks ago.

Chris Chambers             A 6'3, 195-pound forward, Chambers (right) totaled eight points in PSU's 2-0 week with four goals and four assists, including a pair of two-goal games.  He registered a career-high five points Wednesday with two goals and three assists in an 8-3 win over Southern New Hampshire, and he added two goals and one assist, including the game-winner and an empty-netter, in Saturday's 4-2 MASCAC victory over Framingham State.

            Chambers enters the week as the MASCAC leader in goals (7), assists (11) and points (18).  He has also upped his career total to 90 points (47 goals, 43 assists in 79 games) and needs just 10 more to become just the eighth player in school history to reach 100 points.

            PSU, 6-1 overall and 3-1 in the MASCAC, wraps up the first semester of action this week with a pair of conference games, Thursday at home against Fitchburg State College (6:00 p.m.) and Saturday at Westfield State College (5:35 p.m.)
