- Calverley entered the week tied for second nationally with 16 points and tied for third with 10 assists while leading the league in both categories.
- He was credited with two assists in last Sunday’s 4-3 loss at Robert Morris after logging an assist in the Tigers’ 4-4 draw at Colgate (Dec. 29).
- He was tabbed the Atlantic Hockey Player of the Week on Dec. 16 after notching a goal and an assist in both of the Tigers’ games versus LIU (Dec. 11-12).
- Calverley won the first Player of the Week honor of the season (Dec. 1) after scoring his first collegiate hat-trick in the Tigers’ 8-5 victory over then No. 9 Clarkson (Nov. 27) in the season-opener. Calverley found the net with 6:30 left in the first period to push RIT to an early 2-0 lead and later broke a 4-4 tie with a power-play tally with 8:27 left in the third period. The Golden Knights re-tied the game 28 seconds later, but Calverley notched what proved to be the game-winner with 6:15 remaining in regulation.
Calverley and the Tigers are scheduled to host Mercyhurst next Thursday (Jan. 14) at 5:05 p.m.
