Maillet Named UNB Athlete Of The Week

Varsity Reds forward Philippe Maillet has been named the latest recipient of the UNB and Domino's Pizza male Athlete of the Week.

Maillet only had one assist this past week as UNB wrapped up their regular season with a 3-2 overtime win against Moncton and a 4-2 loss to UPEI. However, that one point made all of the difference in the AUS scoring race as he finished the season with 39 points, one ahead of Acadia Axemen forward Brett Thompson. Maillet's 39 points and 25 assists were both tied for 4th best in the CIS.

The native of Lachenaie, Quebec is the first Varsity Red to capture the scoring title since Hunter Tremblay accomplished the feat in 2010-2011.
