Defensive Player-of-the Week
#27 Joe Colletti, F, University of Delaware
Joe, a junior forward from New Hope, PA, successfully killed every power play for which he was on the ice over the weekend, as the team went 14-for-15 on the penalty kill in a 2-game sweep over the University at Buffalo. His plus/minus rating for the weekend was also on the plus side, as he shut down his opposition and led Delaware's transition to offense. Joe is one of the most reliable and effective penalty killers in the ACHA. Colletti stood out for Delaware defensively and has played a large role in our current 6 game winning streak.
Other finalists: Aaron Schmeilski (Oklahoma), Adam Mueller (Iowa State), Kyle Gover (Weber State), Ryan Gregory (Kent State).
