Carey Named Hogan Hockey/ECAC Player of the Month and National Player of the Month
Feb. 28: St. Lawrence University junior forward Greg Carey has been named both the Hogan Hockey/ECAC Player of the Month and the Hockey Commissioner's Association National College Hockey Player of the Month for the month of February.
Carey led the nation in goals and was second in points in eight games in the month of February, scoring nine goals and registering 13 points. He had five power play goals and three game-winning goals as the Saints went 5-2-1 to jump into the race for a first-round bye in the ECAC Hockey playoff race.
He becomes the second Saint player to earn both ECAC and National Player of the Month honors this season. Kyle Flanagan earned both awards in the month of October, the first Saint player to win either award.
Carey ran his goal-scoring streak to 11 games with at least one goal in each game in the month of February, tying the SLU record for consecutive games scoring a goal which was first set by Neale Langill in 1952. He is fifth all-time in career goals among three-year players for the Saints with 63 and his 17 goals in league play are the most for a Saint player since Mike Lappin scored 18 in the 1991-92 season.
The Saint junior wing was also nominated for Player of the Month for January and has scored 13 goals and 11 assists for 24 points since the first of the year. He leads the nation in goals, goals per game and points heading into the final weekend of the regular season.
