A trio of Merrimack men's hockey players received Hockey East weekly awards on Monday. Declan Carlile, Zachary Borgiel, and Hugo Ollas were all given the nod after they helped the Warriors sweep Providence this past weekend in a home-and-home series.
Carlile was named the Hockey East Player of the Week, while Borgiel and Ollas were named Co-Goaltenders of the Week.
Carlile, a junior defenseman, scored a goal in both games and blocked nine shots, including seven Saturday, to go along with his plus-3 rating. Six of those blocked shots Saturday came in the third period. Carlile now has 15 points in 21 games and leads Hockey East in both plus/minus rating (+17) and blocked shots (46).
Ollas and Borgiel split starts against the Friars. Ollas got the nod Friday, then Borgiel was between the pipes Saturday. Ollas made 34 saves to earn the victory in the 3-2 decision for his fifth triumph of the year. Borgiel was also outstanding in the second game, as the sophomore got in front of 33 of Providence's 34 shots to get the win in a 2-1 final.
It's the second weekly award of the season for Carlile and the second for Ollas as well.
The Warriors also received five votes in this week’s USCHO Top-20 Poll.
