UNH Recruits Update: Week 3

Player of the Week - Collin MacDonald

19-year-old forward and 2012 UNH Recruit, Collin MacDonald had a remarkable goal-scoring week for the Jersey Hitmen of the Eastern Junior Hockey League. In three games, MacDonald scored 7 goals. On Saturday, he scored 2 goals including the game-winning goal with 32 seconds left in the game. In the game against the Bay State Breakers on Sunday, MacDonald tallied 4 goals including the game-winning goal in overtime. By virtue of the early season scheduling, MacDonald has played in 2-3 fewer games than most of the leading scorers in the EJHL. However, his 9 goals and 6 assists in 10 games has him tied for 4th in most goals and tied for 8th in total points in the EJHL. MacDonald is a key contributor on the Hitmen's power play having scored 2 goals and 2 assists.

This week, MacDonald's fellow 2012 recruit, Kyle Smith, deserves honorable mention for his play with the Junior Bruins of the EJHL. Across the 4 games he played, Smith scored 6 goals and 5 assists with 1 game-winning goal. So far this season, Smith is among the league leaders in assists (12; tied 4th) and total points (19; 4th place).
