            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – A senior on the Plymouth State University men’s ice hockey team has been honored by the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) for his performance in PSU’s holiday tournament in late December.

            Senior forward Andrew Stewart (O’Leary, PEI) was named to the MASCAC Weekly Honor Roll Monday, his first career weekly conference honor.  Steward helped the Panthers to the championship of the PSU Invitational with victories over Salve Regina University and the University of New England.

            Stewart is tied for fourth on the team in scoring with four goals and six assists.
