PSU Men’s Ice Hockey players earn MASCAC Weekly Honors

Sarig and Dupell receive top accolades for Panthers

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two members of the Plymouth State University men's ice hockey team earned weekly recognition Monday from the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) for their performances in a pair of non-conference games last week.

            Junior Zach Sarig (Reading, Pa.) was named MASCAC Men's Ice Hockey Player of the Week, and freshman Dan Dupell (Westmont, Ill.) was tabbed as MASCAC Rookie of the Week. They were the top players in a 1-1 week for the Panthers.

            A 6'3", 220-pound defenseman, Sarig recorded two goals and one assist for the Panthers.  He scored one goal in PSU's 3-2 win Thursday at Stonehill, and he tallied a goal and an assist in Saturday's 4-3 loss at Southern New Hampshire. His goal at Stonehill came in the third period and proved to be the margin of victory, and both of his points at SNHU came in the third period as PSU came from down 3-1 to tie the game at 3-3.

            A First Team All-MASCAC selection last season, Sarig shares the conference scoring lead after the first two weekends of the season with three goals and two assists in three games.

            A 5'9", 185-pound forward, Dupell scored two goals in the week for the Panthers, one in each game. He scored the first goal of the game at Stonehill, and his second period goal at SNHU tied the game at 1-1.

            Dupell has scored three goals in three games this season, leading all MASCAC freshman in goals and ranking second in points.

            Plymouth State, 1-2 overall, opens MASCAC play with three games this week, beginning with the home opener Tuesday evening (6:00 p.m.) at Hanaway Rink against Salem State University.
