BC's Eaves is Player of the Month

Junior Ben Eaves was recently named the Ice Hockey Collegiate Commissioners' Association National College Hockey Player of the Month for January.

Eaves led the Eagles to a 6-2 record in January with 19 points on eight goals and 11 assists, despite sustaining a groin injury early in the month. Originally slated to miss three to four weeks of action, Eaves quickly rebounded and did not miss a game.

Eaves earned two Hockey East Player of the Week awards in January, and was subsequently selected as the conference's Player of the Month. Eaves has also been selected as a finalist for the 2003 Walter Brown Award, given annually to the best American-born college hockey player in New England.
