Scott Clemmensen earns HOCKEY EAST Co-Rookie of the Week Honors
Boston College freshman goaltender Scott Clemmensen (Urbandale, Iowa/Urbandale) earned HOCKEY EAST Co-Rookie of the Week honors (with Providence's Boyd Ballard) for the week ending November 9. Clemmensen is the third member of Boston College's freshman class to earn the weekly honor. Classmates Brian Gionta (Oct. 14) and Marty Hughes (Oct. 21) are the others.
Clemmensen totaled 48 saves in two victories over nationally-ranked New Hampshire last week. On November 7, Clemmensen stopped a season-high 30 shots as the Eagles completed a two-game sweep over the Wildcats with a 4-1 win at Towse Rink in Durham, N.H. It was the first win for BC in Durham since February 20, 1990.
Three days earlier, Clemmensen's 18 saves led the Eagles to a 6-4 victory. Clemmensen is also off to a fine start, with a 3-1 record, a 3.01 goals against average and an .883 save percentage.
Marty Reasoner Hits Century Point Mark
Junior Center Marty Reasoner (Honeoye Falls, N.Y.) became the 51st player in the 77-year history of the Boston College ice hockey program to reach 100 career points with a six-point effort in two Eagle victories last week.
Reasoner scored four goals and added two assists in two victories over nationally-ranked New Hampshire. On November 4, Reasoner's two-goal, two-assist performance led the Eagles to a 6-4 victory, snapping the Wildcats' six-game series winning streak. For his performance last week, Reasoner was named to the HOCKEY EAST Honor Roll. Reasoner, a first-round draft choice of the St. Louis Blues in 1996, currently has 14 points (6 goals, 8 assists) for the 6-1 Eagles, who are atop the HOCKEY EAST standings with six points and a 3-1 record. Reasoner is also the leading scorer in HOCKEY EAST with nine points (4 goals, 5 assists).
For his career, Reasoner stands in 50th place (tied with Michael Spalla '94) with 103 points (42 goals, 61 assists). Off to their best start since the 1990-91 season, the Eagles return to action this weekend with a home-and-home series with HOCKEY EAST rival Northeastern.
