COLCHESTER, Vt. - Saint Michael's College men's ice hockey senior Nic Hermary (Coquitlam, British Columbia/Melfort Mustangs) was named Northeast-10 Conference Player of the Week while junior Tim Decker (Liverpool, N.Y./Canterbury School) landed NE10 Goalie of the Week for the week ending on Sunday, Dec. 2.
Hermary earned the accolade for the first time, while Decker garnered his third career NE10 Goalie of the Week laurel, and second since mid-November.
Hermary scored both goals in a 2-1 overtime victory at Assumption College on Saturday to cap a 1-1 week. It was the third multi-goal game of his career. In a week that included a 4-0 loss at Tufts University on Tuesday, when he blocked two shots, Hermary ended with an even +/- for the two contests. The assistant captain has two goals and two assists to go along with a plus-2 rating for the season.
Decker made 28 saves without allowing an even-strength goal during the victory over Assumption. For the season, Decker is 2-2 with a 3.45 goals-against average and an .887 save percentage, but his figures drop considerably in NE10 play, where he leads all conference goalies in GAA (1.45) and save percentage (.949).
At 2-7-1 overall and 2-1-1 in the conference, Saint Michael's is two points out of first place in the NE10 heading into its first-semester league finale with Stonehill College tonight at 7 p.m. at Cairns Arena.
