Boland Takes UNB/AUS Weekly Honours

Reds forward Tyler Boland's big weekend on the scoresheet has resulted in him being named both the UNB Reds/Papa John's Pizza male Athlete of the Week and the Subway AUS male athlete of the week.

In Friday night's 11-0 shellacking of the UPEI Panthers Boland registered a hat-trick and two assists. He followed that up with two more goals - his first of the night being his 100th career AUS point - and an assist in Saturday's 7-3 road victory over Moncton. He was named the player of the game in both contests.

The 3rd year forward has been on an offensive tear as of late with 11 points in his last three games. This has vaulted him to not only the top of the conference scoring lead, but also the nation's scoring lead, with 16 goals and 21 assists in 21 games thus far. Additionally, his +21 rating is good for 3rd in the league and his three game-winning goals lead the circuit.

Boland will look to keep up his recent hot streak this week when UNB plays three games, starting Tuesday night in Charlottetown versus the UPEI Panthers.
