Watling Nabs Weekly Awards

Reds forward Patrick Watling was named both the UNB Reds/Papa John's Pizza male Athlete of the Week and Subway AUS male Athlete of the Week for his efforts in a pair of victories this past weekend.

Watling earned first star honours in UNB's home opening 4-0 win over Moncton on Friday night as he had two goals, including a shorthanded marker, and an assist. He was held off the score sheet, but was a +1, in Saturday's 3-2 road win against UPEI.

The former AHLer is off to a strong start in his 5th year of eligibility, racking up five points through four games.

UNB is at home this weekend for games against St. FX on Friday and Dalhousie on Saturday. It should be noted that the 50/50 pot for Friday night will be starting at $2579 due to a previously unclaimed prize.
