Joe Pearce Named Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week

He's getting his plaudits in while he can. Joe Pearce, who rejoined Boston College's ice hockey team this season largely for the purpose of spot starting while Cory Schneider was away with Team USA at the World Junior Championships, [url=http://bceagles.collegesports.com/sports/m-hockey/spec-rel/010206aab.html]has been named Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week[/url] for his performance at the Denver Cup tournament where he was named MVP. Don't expect to see too much more of Pearce now though as Schneider will be back in net for the Eagles after a disappointing 4th place finish for USA in Vancouver.
