More MASCAC Weekly recognition for PSU Men’s Ice Hockey

McGilvrey, Ceasar honored for league-leading Panthers

            PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two key members of the Plymouth State University men's ice hockey team were recognized Monday by the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) for their performances in a pair of Panther games last week.

            Panther junior Ian McGilvrey (Omaha, Neb.) was named MASCAC Men's Ice Hockey Player of the Week, and senior goalie Gordon Ceasar (Oak Park, Calif.) earned a spot on the Weekly Honor Roll. They were the top players in a pair of victories last week that keeps the Panthers atop the MASCAC standings.

            A 5'7", 160-pound forward, McGilvrey posted a goal and three assists, including a pair of two-point games, in a 2-0 week for the Panthers. He scored PSU's first goal and assisted on the third-period game-winner in Thursday's 2-1 win over Worcester State University, and collected two assists, including one on the game-winner, in Saturday's 5-2 victory at Westfield State University.

            McGilvrey is tied for fifth on the team in scoring with four goals and 11 assists in 19 games this season. The former MASCAC Rookie of the Year (2013-14) ranks second on the team and 10th in the league in assists this season.

            A 6'2", 180-pound netminder, Ceasar went 2-0 last week with a 1.50 goals against average and a .943 save percentage. He made 26 saves in the 2-1 win over Worcester State, and stopped 24 shots in the 5-2 triumph at Westfield State.

            A two-time All-Conference selection, Ceasar is ranked second in the MASCAC in both goals against average (2.00) and save percentage (.927).  His 12-2-0 record on the season is also second-best in the conference. Ceasar also leads all NCAA Division III goalies in victories and ranks 21st in GAA, 24th in save percentage and tied for sixth in winning percentage (.857).

            The Panthers, 15-3-1 overall and 10-1-1 in the MASCAC, play just one game this week, a conference home contest on Saturday vs. the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth at 6:00 p.m.
