WATERVILLE, Maine -- Colby College forward Cam MacDonald (Westford, Mass.), who had seven points in two New England Small College Athletic Conference games, was honored as the NESCAC Men's Hockey Player of the Week on Monday.
MacDonald had four goals and three assists in a 7-3 victory over Tufts University and a 2-0 win against Connecticut College. He had a collegiate-high four goals and dished two assists to have six points on the seven goals against Tufts. In a tighter game against the Camels, MacDonald had an assist on Colby's second goal.
The goal of the weekend may have been MacDonald's third score against Tufts. He took a long pass from teammate Michael Decker on the blue line, beat a defender with a slick move, and then scored while falling to the ice after he was tripped.
MacDonald ranks first in the NESCAC in overall scoring (7 goals, 5 assists) and first in conference game scoring (5 goals, 5 assists). He ranks 10th in Division III in goals per game and 20th in points.
MacDonald, the son of head coach Blaise MacDonald, has 24 goals and 39 assists for 63 career points. He has helped the 15th-ranked Mules to a 6-2 overall record and a 5-1 mark in the league after the first semester of play.
MacDonald is the second straight Mule to earn the NESCAC Player of the Week honor. Senior goaltender Sean Lawrence was honored last Monday.
