BUFFALO – Canisius Junior Connor Kearnan has been named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Offensive Player of the Week, league officials announced Monday.
The honor marks the second time this season that Kearnan has been recognized. The Courtice, Ontario, product was named MAAC Offensive Player of the Week on Feb. 20 after a nine-point performance in the Griffs’ season-opening victory over Dartmouth.
Kearnan tallied six goals and four assists in helping guide Canisius to a 1-1 record last week.
He tallied six points (3g, 3a) in an 18-11 setback to Hobart on March 14 and followed that performance with three goals and one assist in a 17-6 victory over Marist in Canisius’ MAAC opener on March 18.
Through six games, Kearnan leads the Griffs in goals (15), assists (13) and points (28). He ranks in the top 15 nationally in both points (12th) and assists (13th) per game while sitting 27th in the NCAA in goals per contest (2.5).
Canisius (3-3) returns to action Tuesday when it hosts No. 9 Albany in a 4 p.m. contest at the Demske Sports Complex. The game will be shown live on ESPN3.
