The UNB Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male athlete of the week is Tyler Boland, from the men’s hockey team.
Boland was a big contributor to a pair of weekend wins, as the Reds finished the first half of the season unbeaten in regulation.
Boland scored twice, added an assist, and was named player of the game in Friday’s 7-4 over the Saint Mary’s Huskies.
In Saturday’s 5-1 win at Acadia, Boland set up the game winning goal.
The assist moved him into second, behind teammate Chris Clapperton, in Atlantic University Sport scoring.
“Tyler has become a key catalyst for the continued improved performances of our team,” says Reds head coach Gardiner MacDougall. “His consistent scoring is a product of his hard work and preparation.”
Next up for Boland and the Reds, the Peterbilt Atlantic Pete Kelly Cup, against the Lethbridge Pronghorns, December 29th, at 7:00pm, at the Aitken Centre.
