The first week of conference action in the ECAC is in the books with Quinnipiac and Union being the only teams to go perfect. Here are SBNation's Three Stars of the Week in ECAC Hockey.

#1 Star

Connor Jones - The Quinnipiac senior forward tallied three goals and an assist on the weekend. The Montrose, BC native had the game-winning scores in each game for the Bobcats. He centers the top line with his brother Kellen on the right and freshman Sam Anas on the left. His game-winning goal in Friday's victory over Colgate also just happened to be his 100 point as a Bobcat. Brother Kellen is just three points away from joining him in the century club.

#2 Star

Daniel Carr - The senior forward from Sherwood Park, Alberta broke Union's all-time goal scoring mark with two tallies on the weekend. His goal on Saturday against Harvard was the difference as the Dutchmen snapped Harvard's three-game unbeaten streak. Carr now has 60 goals and 56 assists for his career.

#3 Star

Greg Carey - This is beginning to sound like a broken record, but Carey potted two goals and added three helpers as Saint Lawrence skated to a pair of ties against Yale and Brown. The reigning Hobey Baker Award finalist isn't missing a beat even without last year's linemate Kyle Flanagan.

Notes and miscellaneous milestones: Clarkson freshman A.J. Fossen recorded his first collegiate goal in Friday's 4-3 win over Brown, and it just happened to be the game-winner with 1:53 to play in regulation... Harvard goaltender Raphael Girard shut out RPI, 2-0, on Friday night. Crimson coach Ted Donato has used a rotation between the pipes, but Girard has two shutouts in as many starts...RPI senior forward Brock Higgs had a big week for the Engineers, scoring four goals and an assist, including his hat trick in the Engineers' 7-1 win over Dartmouth.
