AMHERST, Mass. - Hockey senior Danny Hobbs has been named UMass Athlete of the Week for his three-goal effort this weekend against Vermont. The senior co-captain propelled the Minutemen to their third straight victory on Friday evening, 4-3, as UMass extended its home unbeaten streak to 10 games.

The Shawville, Quebec native posted the third hat trick by a Minuteman in the matchup with the Catamounts. He is now tied for the second most goals on the UMass squad with sophomore Michael Pereira. Hobbs has collected 18 points in 19 contests this season, with nine goals and as many assists.

Hobbs extended his point scoring streak to six straight games with his hat trick on Jan. 20. The UMass forward was able to net both the first and third goal of the game for the Minutemen.

Hobbs will be honored at the Weekly Sports Luncheon in the Campus Center's room 1009 at 12:15 p.m. this Wednesday. The Mass Attack next hits the ice this Friday for a Hockey East contest with in-state rival UMass-Lowell at 7 p.m.
