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.

Gerard Dicaire and Brandon Elliot had assists for the Chiefs. Game sheet from [url=http://www.echl.com/cgi-bin/ppublic.cgi?action=summary&id=2658]ECHL.com.[/url]
