No. 1 Star

Colin Stevens

Union, Jr., Goaltender, Niskayuna, NY

Stevens stopped 78 of 80 shots he faced on the weekend as his team picked up a weekend sweep of the University of New Hampshire at the always-hostile Whittemore Center in Durham. The former Jr. Bruins backstop led his team to consecutive 3-1 victories, resulting in the Dutchmen moving into the top four of the all-important Pairwise Rankings.

No. 2 Star

Mark Naclerio

Brown, Soph., Forward, Milford, Conn.

Naclerio had two goals and three assists on the weekend, including his one goal, three assist performance in Brown's 5-3 win at St. Lawrence Friday night. The former Waterloo Blackhawks sniper now has a five-game goal-scoring streak and has accumulated six goals and four assists over that period.

No. 3 Star

Ryan Johnston

Colgate, Soph., Defense, Sudbury, Ontario

The leading scorer among Raiders defensemen, Johnston had two goals and an assist as his team took four points on the road at Dartmouth and Harvard. He was +5 and had four shots on goal over the course of the weekend. He just was a steadying presence along the Raiders blue line and made a great read on the empty net goal that sealed the victory over Harvard.
