Plunkett Earns Defensive Player of the Week Honors
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.
