UNH’s DeSmith named Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week
UNH goalie Casey DeSmith was named Hocket East Defensive Player of the Week after allowing one goal over two wins against Northeastern last weekend.
DeSmith, a junior, earned a shutout in Friday’s 3-0 win in Boston, then was on his game again in a 4-1 victory at the Whittemore Center. He stopped 22 shots on Friday, then made 31 saves Saturday for a weekend save percentage of .981.
The Wildcats ended the weekend on a five-game winning streak and improved to 6-5-1. They’ll play a pair of games at Providence, the No. 3 team in the nation, this weekend.
