Nov. 2, 2015
STORRS, Conn. - UConn freshman Tage Thompson (Orange, Conn.) was named the Hockey East Pro Ambitions Rookie of the Week on Monday by the league office. It is the first Hockey East weekly honor for Thompson.
Thompson became the second Husky rookie this season to record a hat trick, netting three goals to help lead UConn to a 5-2 win over No. 7/8 ranked Boston University last Tuesday at the XL Center. All three of Thompson's goals came on the power play, becoming the first Husky to scored three times on the power play in a game since 2011. He scored the game's first goal to give the Huskies a first period 1-0 lead and then buried two in the third period as UConn built their lead over BU to 5-1 on the way to the win.
He enters this week second on the team in scoring with seven points on three goals and four assists.
The Huskies will take on UMass in a Hockey East home-and-home series this weekend. UConn will host the Minutemen on Friday night at XL Center and travel to Amherst on Saturday.
