Bennett Named Athlete Of The Week

Varsity Reds forward Kris Bennett has been named the UNB Varsity Reds/Papa John's Pizza male Athlete of the Week after helping the team to two big wins on home ice over the weekend.

On Friday night Bennett was the offensive star of the game, potting two goals and picking up three assists in a 7-2 drubbing of the Acadia Axemen. He added a power play goal in Saturday night's 5-1 victory over Saint Mary's.

Bennett is quickly establishing himself as one of the top rookies in the conference. His 12 points (5 goals, 7 assists) in 8 games ranks 6th in the league - and 2nd among all freshman, behind only UPEI's Kameron Kielly's conference-leading 16 points.

Bennett and the rest of his Varsity Red teammates will look to continue their strong start this weekend when they host Moncton on Friday night before visiting UPEI the next night.
