Smith Earns Player of the Week Honors
March 5, 2006
Middlebury College men's hockey player Jeff Smith (Nepean, Ont.) has been named the NESCAC Player of the Week. Smith was instrumental in the Panthers capturing their sixth NESCAC Championship with a pair of wins in the Kenyon Arena over the weekend. The senior captain led a Middlebury defense that allowed just three goals in two games, including holding the league's second-best offense from Bowdoin to just nine shots in the championship game. With the two wins, Middlebury lowered its nation's-best defense to a mere 1.55 goals/game.
Smith and the Panthers will host an NCAA Quarterfinal this Saturday at 7:00 p.m.
