Bennett Named Athlete of the Week

Forward Kris Bennett has been named the UNB Reds/Papa John's Pizza male athlete of the week after helping lead the Reds to their second consecutive AUS title.

The 2nd year native of Brampton, Ontario recorded a goal and an assist in each game of the final against St. FX. This capped a fantastic postseason for Bennett as he notched a conference-leading 8 points (5 goals, 3 assists) and was named the playoff MVP.

Bennett and the rest of the Reds traveled to Halifax yesterday before flying to Alberta today as they prepare for the University Cup. UNB begins their tournament at 4PM on Friday with a match-up versus the Carleton Ravens.
