First-Year Forward Enjoys Homecoming

 

ALBANY, N.Y. – Kevin O'Neil enjoyed his first trip as a Yale hockey player to his home area, the New York Capital District, last weekend. The first-year forward from Latham helped the Bulldogs take two points from a challenging road trip with a 5-3 win over Union last Saturday.

 

O'Neil had two goals and today was named ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week, the second such honor for an Eli this season.

 

The 5-foot-11, 175-pound former USHL standout came to New Haven after playing for the Madison Capitols. He has three goals in 11 collegiate games.

 

O'Neil and the Bulldogs take on Sacred Heart this Saturday at 7 p.m. at Bridgeport's Webster Bank Arena.
