Pugliese ’18 Earns NESCAC Hockey Nod

 

Trinity College men’s ice hockey player and sophomore goaltender Patrick Pugliese ’18 was named the New England Small College Athletic Conference Men’s Ice Hockey Player of the Week after two strong performances against Middlebury College and Williams College the weekend of January 7–8.

Patrick made 29 saves in a 5-0 victory over Middlebury on Saturday and followed up that effort with a 22-save shutout against Williams on Sunday. The shutouts are his second and third of the year through only seven games.

In his senior season at Loomis Chaffee, Patrick was one of the best goalies in New England, playing in 21 games and helping the team qualify for the New England Prep School Athletic Council Martin/Earl Boys Ice Hockey Tournament.
