In addition, Adelphi’s Patrick Guier was named to the weekly honor roll. The graduate student assisted on two of Adelphi’s three goals in a 2-0 week for the Panthers last week for a team-best two points. He assisted on Taylor Kazcynski’s game-winner in a 1-0 win vs. SCSU on Wednesday, and on the opening goal in an eventual 2-1 OT win at Merrimack on Saturday.
