The UNB Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male athlete of the week is Kris Bennett, from the men’s hockey team.
Bennett led the Reds in their sweep of the St FX X-Men in the Atlantic University Sport men’s hockey championship series.
He had a goal and an assist in Monday’s 5-1 win in game one, on home ice, before duplicating that effort in Wednesday’s 7-1 title clinching victory on the road.
Bennett was named the Most Valuable Player of the AUS playoffs.
“Kris continues to be a spark plug for our team with his energy and work ethic as his foundation,” says Reds head coach Gardiner MacDougall. “He had a very consistent AUS playoffs, leading our team and the AUS in scoring.”
Bennett and his teammates are in Lethbridge, Alberta, for this week’s University Cup national championship tournament.
