Dubeau Named Athlete Of The Week

Varsity Reds goaltender Alex Dubeau has been named the UNB Varsity Reds/Papa John's Pizza male Athlete of the Week after putting together his best weekend of the season against two of the country's top teams.

Dubeau was stellar on Friday night, making a number of big saves among his 20 on the night as the V-Reds squeaked past Saint Mary's 3-2. He rewarded as the game's first star for his efforts. He wasn't nearly as busy - or relied on as much - the next night against Acadia, but he stopped all 15 shots directed his way for his 2nd shutout of the season in a 6-0 win.

On the season the 3rd year netminder is 13-1-3 with a 2.09 GAA and 0.900 save percentage. He ranks 2nd in the conference in both wins and GAA and is 4th in save percentage.

Dubeau and his teammates look to extend their five game winning streak this week when they travel to PEI to face the Panthers on Wednesday night before returning to the AUC for a date with the Moncton Aigles Bleus on Saturday night.
