MARSHFIELD, Mass. – Frankie DeAugustine (Pittsburgh, Pa.) of University of Massachusetts Boston and William Pelletier (St. Jean Chrysotome, Que.) of Norwich University were named to the D3Hockey.com Team of the Week for their play from December 28 through January 3. Both players lead their teams to 1-1 weeks in their respective holiday tournaments. The duo was also recognized as the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) Co-Players of the Week on Monday.
DeAugustine recorded four goals and three assists during the two-day Codfish Bowl Tournament. The senior scored two goals in both games and added the game-winner and three assists on Sunday, to lead UMass Boston to a 1-1 week. He had his hand in seven of the Beacons' eight goals on the weekend.
Pelletier had a remarkable return to the lineup, scoring three goals and notching six assists for nine points in two games in his first game action since the season opener. Pelletier scored two goals and racked up four assists in an 8-0 win over Wesleyan University on Saturday night. He then added a goal and two more assists for three points in Sunday's 5-4 overtime loss to defending national champion Trinity College. Pelletier was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament, which made it three straight Northfield Savings Bank Holiday Tournament MVP awards for him.
