Sorry this is so late. Travel for the game in Elmira prevented me from posting this earlier.

Congratulations to Spencer Anderson of Hamline. After a stint in the OHL, Anderson had to sit out a year before he was eligible to play Collegiate Hockey. He served his time, and just became eligible this semester. That all makes last weekend much more impressive. In his first two collegiate games, Anderson put up 4 goals, and 7 points total. He did this against Adrian, whom some would argue are worthy of a high rank, although some argue the opposite. He single-handedly threw a monkey wrench into Adrian's pursuit of yet another undefeated in-region season. This performance has earned him the DIII Posters' Player of the Week Award for the week of 12/28-1/3.

In more recent action, Anderson received no points in Hamline's 4-0 loss to St. Scholastica, but he continued to produce in their 4-4 tie with Wisconsin-Superior, as he scored only 42 seconds into the game. Look for this kid to keep producing as the season continues. Because of his previous ineligibility, Anderson is starting as a Junior for Hamline, so we shall see how far he goes in only a year an a half of Collegiate Hockey.



Now onto the new business. I am opening nominations for the Player of the Week for the week of 1/4-1/10. Because this is happening so late, it would be unfair to maintain the usual 12pm ET deadline for nominations, so All nominations will be due on Monday at 10pm ET. But remember: this is for the week of 1/4-1/10, nominations should NOT be based on Monday games, the reason for the usual 12pm deadline.

POTW is a wastewater acronym for Publicly Owned Treatment Works :confused:

Unless you sneak in the one against Potsdam (1/2/10), I see only 3 as well (and no assists).

For the sake of nominating a goalie (or two):

Scott Barchard (Tufts): Made 38 of 39 saves in a 2-1 win over Babson and 40 of 42 saves in a 2-1 loss to UMass-Boston.
Overall stats: 2 games (1-1-0), 3 goals (1.50 GAA), 79 saves on 82 shots (.963 SV%)

Arthur Hollinger (Castleton): Made 29 of 30 saves in a 3-1 win over Trinity and made 22 saves in a 5-0 shutout over Wesleyan.
Overall stats: 2 games (2-0-0), 1 goal (0.50 GAA), 51 saves on 52 shots (.981 SV%), 1 shutout.

By the way, there aren't any D-III games on Monday.

Probably not a good idea to nominate 2 Bowdoin players!!!

Oswego's Neil Musselwhite - 1 game, hat trick and an assist for 4 points

Musselwhite's goal was also a Game Winner. Just to throw that in.

I'll take Musselwhite because he got the 4 points in one game and another shortie.

Is there a way of recognizing those that don't get the glory of being the goal scorers? i.e. the defensive stars of the game.

It is hard to quantify defensive, the offense can prove their skill with numbers (goals/assists) and the goalies with saves, but the defense is like the cleaning staff - if they are good, the results look good, but how do you show who did what by just looking at the box? :(

My vote is for Neil Musselwhite - Oswego State Lakers
(Game against Adrian 3 goals 1 assist).

I'm an Oswego fan and one of the few people that were actually at the Adrian/Oswego game on Friday and as nice as Neil's numbers look, They are a bit misleading.

His first goal was a beauty. One timer snipe to the top corner on an odd-man rush. (but even that was set-up by Whitelaw) Dont get me wrong there. Full props. However, his second goal of the game was a gift wide open net on a mistake by Fogal (literally Fogal was behind the net and Neil had the whole net to shoot at) and his third goal was an empty netter.

I dont think Neil's week was as impressive as some of the other candidates. Especially with how the goals were scored. I think the Bowdoin kid or the Norwich kid should win it this week.

This is not a slight at Neil. He's had an outstanding season. Just my honest opinion and I'm worried that with the number of Oswego fans on this board he'll win again this week when perhaps someone else is more deserving.

I'd throw Josh Leis' name into the hat for Plattsburgh. Granted, he only played one game but he played a whale of one against Elmira. 1 goal on 40+ shots right?

Plain and simple...if Josh Leis isn't on top of his game, Plattsburgh loses that game about 4 or 5-1.

I dont know what TacoRob sees in the kid but I was definitely impressed with Leis. Sure he had one or two pucks rolls off his glove but he also made some impressive saves that reminded me of Kevin Amborski a little bit in the way Amborski stole the show from Oswego in the SUNYAC semis in 2007.
