Simpson Named Athlete Of The Week

Forward Mark Simpson is the latest recipient of the UNB Reds/Papa John's male Athlete of the Week the school announced earlier this week.

Simpson played a pivotal role in UNB's two victories last weekend. On Friday night he scored a goal and won 23 out of 35 face-offs in a 5-1 win over Moncton. He followed up that performance with a pair of goals in UNB's 6-3 win at UPEI the next night.

The 3rd year alternate captain is off to a blistering start to his season. He now has a league-leading five goals - to go along with two assists - in four games played. His seven points rank 4th in the conference.

He will look to continue his solid play this weekend when UNB is on the road to face the Acadia Axemen on Friday night and the Saint Mary's Huskies on Saturday.
