Yearling defenseman Marshal Plunkett of the Army West Point Hockey team was named Atlantic Hockey's Defensive Player of the week this week after helping in the Black Knights' 2-1 victory over UConn.
Plunkett had the primary assist on the game-winning goal in Army's 2-1 road win Friday night. The West Salem, Wisc., native has now assisted on the game-winning goal of both wins to open the season.
He also is part of the penalty kill unit that negated all four UConn power-play opportunities and added one block in the win.
The Black Knights are back in action Saturday and Sunday hosting Robert Morris. The first game will be played at 7:05 p.m., while Sunday's will be a matinee at 4:05 p.m.
