For the second time this season, RIT defenseman Dan Willett has been named the Atlantic Hockey Defensive Player of the Week.
The senior scored the game-winning goal and blocked seven shots in last Tuesday’s 5-1 victory over Sacred Heart.
He also recorded two assists and blocked two shots in Saturday’s 3-3 tie against AIC.
Willett ranks third in the nation and first in Atlantic Hockey with 70 blocked shots.
RIT is scheduled to play Mercyhurst on Friday. Face-off is slated for 7:05 p.m.
