Jan. 11, 2010

BUZZARDS BAY, MA-Two members of the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's hockey team have been honored by the Massachusetts State College Athletic Conference.

Senior goaltender Jon Dryjowicz-Burek (Ludlow, MA/Springfield Jr. Falcons-EJHL) has been named MASCAC Goaltender of the Week, while junior forward Todd Bartelson (Pepperell, MA/Valley Jr. Warriors) has been named MASCAC Player of the Week. It's the second time this season that Dryjowicz-Burek has been honored.

Dryjowicz-Burek stopped 20 of 22 shots in Saturday night's 6-2 win at Salve Regina for a save percentage of .909. He made three key saves in the first period, and leads all MASCAC goaltenders with a 2.69 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage.

Bartelson scored twice in the first period at SRU Saturday, including the game-winner, He has seven goals (including two power play goals) and five assists for 12 points for the season.

"Todd was a going concern all night long," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach John Rolli. "His first goal of the night proved to be the game-winner. His second goal of the night with less than a minute left in the first period that gave us a four-goal lead was probably the deciding goal in the game. Jon was very solid in the net, and made three key saves in the first period which helped us win. He also had a very good game handling the puck."

The Corsairs are 5-5-1 and will return to action when they visit Westfield State in a MASCAC game Tuesday evening.
