James Marcou Named Hockey East Player Of The Week
Oct. 12, 2009
AMHERST, Mass. - After a career-high tying four-assist night in the win over RPI, James Marcou was named the Hockey East Performer of the Week announced by the league office on Monday. The active career league leader in points, Marcou moved into 18th all-time at UMass with 83 career points (23g, 60a). The Minutemen will host defending national champion and No. 2 ranked Boston University on Friday night at the Mullins Center (7 PM).
After the Minutemen fell behind 1-0 late in the first period, Marcou sparked a three-goal second period with a pair of assists. He helped set-up Casey Wellman's goal to tie the game on a 5-on-3 power play and then made a nifty play to set-up Rocco Carzo's first career goal that stood as the game-winner.
In the third period, Marcou tacked on two more assists, both on power play goals by Matt Irwin, to round out the evening.
Marcou previously tallied four assists in a game against Northeastern on Jan. 30, 2009. In 76 games, Marcou is up to 83 career points and is tied for seventh all-time in career assists (60) at UMass.
Against RPI, Marcou played alongside Wellman and T.J. Syner as the line accounted for eight of UMass' 15 points in the game.
