C.J. Shugart Named NESCAC Player of the Week

HADLEY, MA – Williams College senior forward C.J. Shugart (Toronto, Ontario) was amended the NESCAC Men's Ice Hockey Player of the Week for his role in the Ephs weekend sweep of Middlebury.

At home in a Friday night game versus the Panthers Shugart netted the first goal of the contest and the Ephs went on to win 2-1 in OT on a goal with 10 seconds remaining by Colby Cretella.

On Saturday at Middlebury Shugart netted both Eph goals and both scores came in the second period. 

Just 53 seconds into the period Shugart converted off of passes from Jack McCool and Colby Cretella on a power play opportunity to open the scoring in the contest. 

Shugart's second goal came with just 10 seconds remaining in the period when Roberto Cellini set Shugart up to record what proved to be the game-winner in the Ephs' 2-1 win.

On the year Shugart leads the Ephs in goals scored with 11 and he is third on the team in points with 16.
