Flanagan, Weninger garner ECAC weekly honors


For the second consecutive week, St. Lawrence University senior captain Kyle Flanagan has been named ECAC Hockey Player of the Week, while junior goaltender Matt Weninger earned ECAC Hockey Goaltender of the Week honors following a weekend sweep at Maine.

In addition, the Saints (3-1) were selected as the College Hockey News “Team of the Week.”

Flanagan recorded a seven-point weekend, assisting on four goals in the Saints 5-0 victory over the Black Bears on Friday, and scored twice and assisted on a goal in the 5-1 win on Saturday.

The center leads the nation in goals and points through the first two weekends of the season with five goals and six assists in four games. The player of the Week award is the fifth in Flanagan’s career.

Weninger made 30 saves on Friday to record his fifth career shutout and followed with a 36-save effort on Saturday to secure the road sweep.

He improved to 3-1 on the season and has a .952 save percentage along with a 1.75 goals against average. Weninger made 17 of his 66 saves on Maine power plays as the Saints held the Black Bears scoreless in 14 man-advantage chances over the two games.

Weninger has earned the league’s goaltender of the week honors four times in his career and was also honored as rookie of the week twice.

The Saints are off to their best road start since 1988-99 at 3-1 and are on a 6-0-1 streak against Hockey East opponents since January of 2010.

St. Lawrence will open its home schedule Nov. 2-3 with a pair of games against Alabama-Huntsville before beginning ECAC play at Brown and Yale on Nov. 9-10.
