BUTLER TABBED HOCKEY EAST CO-PLAYER OF THE WEEK

WAKEFIELD, Mass. – Senior forward Bobby Butler (Marlboro, Mass.) of the University of New Hampshire men’s hockey team was named Hockey East Co-Player of the Week. The announcement was made Monday by the league office. He becomes the first Wildcat to earn this honor since Greg Collins did so Jan. 5, 2009.

Butler has been red-hot for the Wildcats scoring, three goals in the weekend series at UMass, including a pair of goals Saturday night in a 4-2 win. Butler netted the first goal Saturday night, as well as the game-winning goal. The league’s top goal scorer has scored five goals in the last four games and has already matched last season’s nine goals.

UNH returns to action when it begins a home-and-home series with Boston University. The teams will play Friday, Nov. 20 (7 p.m.) at the Whittemore Center and square off Saturday, Nov. 21 (7 p.m.) at Agganis Arena. Saturday’s game at BU will air live on NESN.
