Harvey Takes Weekly Award

Goaltender Samuel Harvey has been named the UNB Reds/Papa John's Pizza male Athlete of the Week after backstopping the Reds to a 3rd consecutive AUS championship this past week.

The freshman followed up an impressive rookie season with an even better playoff, going 4-1 with a 1.21 GAA and a 0.946 save percentage on route to being named MVP. He was especially brilliant during the most important games of the year as he gave up only three goals on 73 shots during the three game series victory over the Acadia Axemen.

After winning a Memorial Cup as a member of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies at the Scotiabank Centre last season, Harvey will look to replicate that feat this weekend as the Reds head to Halifax for the University Cup. They open the tournament at 2PM on Friday afternoon against the UBC Thunderbirds.
