Landry Named Player of the Week


BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin College senior men's ice hockey player Jon Landry (Montreal, Que.) has been named the NESCAC's Men's Ice Hockey Player of the Week for his efforts in a two-game sweep of Colby last weekend. The Polar Bears (7-1-0) are ranked seventh in the latest Division III national poll, with a new ranking scheduled to be released on Monday evening.

Landry was a driving force for the Polar Bears on the blue line during a home-and-home series against Colby over the weekend. In Friday night's game in Waterville, Landry posted two assists, including an assist on the game-winner for a 3-2 victory. Landry followed it up with a phenomenal three-goal, one-assist showing in Saturday's dramatic 7-6 win over the Mules. Landry, who earned the Pete Schuh Memorial Award as the MVP of the Bowdoin-Colby game in Brunswick, is currently fourth in scoring in the NESCAC this season (4-10-14).

The senior from St. Paul's School (N.H.) is closing in on becoming the 30th member of Bowdoin's 100-point club with 97 career points following last weekend's games. It marks the second straight week a Bowdoin player (and a St. Paul's alum) has been named conference Player of the Week as Adam Dann collected the honor for the week of Nov. 28-Dec. 4.
