BEVERLY, Mass. – Endicott sophomore Conor O'Brien (Pinellas Park, Fla.) has been named the Commonwealth Coast Conference (CCC) Men's Ice Hockey Goaltender of the Week, as announced by the league office earlier today.
Last week, O'Brien went 1-0-0 in two games for the Gulls without allowing a goal. He played just over 92 minutes between the pipes and made 39 stops. Eleven of those saves came in a 40-minute performance against Becker on Friday (Feb. 21) before turning away 28 Curry shots in 52:35 the next day.
This is O'Brien's third CCC Goaltender of the Week award this season and sixth overall in his career.
Second-seeded Endicott (20-5) will host the winner of the second-lowest remaining seed that advances out of the CCC Quarterfinal round on Saturday, February 29 in the CCC Semifinals at 7:30 PM. The CCC Quarterfinals matchups include No. 6 Wentworth/No. 3 Curry and No. 5 Nichols/No. 4 Salve Regina. Meanwhile, first-seeded UNE will play the lowest remaining seed who advances to the CCC Semifinals out of that group.
