Waltham, Mass. – Bentley freshman forward Will Garin (Mound, Minn.) has been named the Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week, the conference announced on Tuesday.
Garin had one goal and two assists and was +2 in helping Bentley to a sweep of Canisius over the weekend.
In Saturday's 6-4 victory, he scored just 1:06 into the game to give the Falcons an early lead. He then had the primary assist on two goals in the 2nd period, scored by Tanner Jago and Jonathan Desbiens, to help Bentley build a 5-1 lead.
On the season, the Minnesota native has 14 points on 4 goals and 10 assists in 24 games.
Garin is the 5th Bentley player this season to earn an Atlantic Hockey weekly award, joining Luke Santerno (Player of the Week), Aidan Pelino (Goalie of the Week), Jakov Novak (Rookie of the Week) and Dylan Pitera (Rookie of the Week).
After this weekend's sweep Bentley has now won seven games in a row, and extended its unbeaten streak to 11 games (9-0-2), the longest by any team this season.
They'll look to keep the streak going on Thursday when they open a series at Niagara.
