UNH Recruits Update: Dec-10-2012

Player of the Week - Matias Cleland

For the second time this season, Omaha Lancers' defenseman Matias Cleland gets the nod as Player of the Week among all UNH recruits. Cleland has become a key point producer for the Lancers, particularly on the power play. In victories last week against the USA Under-17 Team and the Lincoln Stars, Cleland posted 2 assists in each game. Three of the assists came on the power play.

In his second season in the United States Hockey League, the 18-year-old Cleland has accumulated 4 goals and 12 assists in 23 games. That makes Cleland the second leading scorer on the Lancers. He is also near the top in scoring among all USHL defensemen. Cleland is tied for 2nd in scoring and tied for 3rd in assists. Cleland has already exceeded his point total for last season (i.e., 14). Cleland is on target to enroll at UNH in the Fall of 2013.
