Senior Forward Shawn Hulshof of the Oswego State men’s ice hockey team has been named the State University of New York Athletic Conference Ice Hockey player of the week. This is the third time in his career that Hulshof has won SUNYAC weekly honors.
In the game against Morrisville State on Friday night, with the Lakers ahead by a score of 2-1 in the third, Hulshof scored within the first 30 seconds of the period to put the team up by two. He was aided by Stephen Johnson and Matt Galati on the goal. With under a minute to go in regulation, the senior scored an empty-net goal to seal the 4-1 victory for Oswego State.
On Saturday night, against the same Morrisville State Mustangs, the Ontario native netted another goal midway into the second period, giving the Lakers a 5-1 lead. He would later assist the Stephen Johnson goal that put the Lakers up 8-1 late in the third period.
With Hulshof’s help, Oswego State remains undefeated on the season with a 9-0 record, and atop of the NCAA Division III Hockey polls.
The Lakers are back in action this weekend as they head out to Western New York to face Fredonia and Buffalo State on Friday and Saturday. Puck drop for both games is at 7 p.m.
