RIT forward Will Calverley named Atlantic Hockey Player of the Week

Rochester Institute of Technology junior forward Will Calverley (Scarborough, Ontario) was named the Atlantic Hockey Player of the Week, Tuesday.

Calverley scored his first collegiate hat-trick to lead the Tigers to an 8-5 victory in last Friday’s season-opener opposite No. 9 Clarkson at the Polisseni Center.

Calverley found the net with 6:30 left in the first period to push RIT to an early 2-0 lead. He later broke a 4-4 tie with a power-play tally with 8:27 left in the third period. The Golden Knights re-tied the game 28 seconds later, but Calverley notched what proved to be the game-winner with 6:15 remaining in regulation.
