SUNYAC announces this weeks Men's Ice Hockey PrestoSports Awards

CORTLAND, N.Y. - The State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) selects Anton Rosen (Orsa, Sweden), Joe McGrath (East Aurora, N.Y.) and Tyson Empey (Swift Current, Sask. Canada) as this week's Men's Ice Hockey Goaltender, Rookie and Player of the Week respectively. 

Fredonia's Rosen made the Castleton Invitational all-tournament team after stopping 54 of 59 shots in two games. He posted his first collegiate shutout with a 28-save performance vs. Curry, ranked No. 15 at the start of the tournament. In addition, he was spotless over 68 minutes including a three-on-three tiebreaking overtime plus three rounds of a decisive shootout. He followed that with 26 saves in a 5-5 tie vs. Nazareth. The Blue Devils won the tournament in tiebreaking overtime.

Buffalo State's McGrath netted his first collegiate goal and chipped in an assist in Saturday's 7-3 win over Brockport in the consolation game of the Skidmore Thanksgiving Invitational.

Empey scored a pair of important goals for the Geneseo Knights as they split a weekend against vaunted NESCAC opponents. Against Amherst, Empey scored the eventual game-winner, tallying his first short-handed score on the season. Against Williams, Empey tied the game, 4-4, in the third period with a power play goal, his seventh power play tally of the season. Empey leads the SUNYAC and ranks third in the country with 10 goals this season.
