BLOOMINGTON, Minn.--For the second straight time, Adrian College senior defenseman Chris Leone (Dearborn Heights, Mich./Kalamazoo Jr. K-Wings, NAHL) has been named to the D3hockey.com National Team of the Week, the website announced on Tuesday.
An alternate captain, Leone compiled three points to tie for the team lead as Adrian won a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association road series against Marian-Wis., a 4-4 tie on Friday and a 3-2 comeback win Saturday. In the opener, he had a power play goal. He currently leads conference blueliners with two goals, four assists and six total points.
Leone, who made an appearance on the inaugural D3hockey TOW on the First Team Defense on Nov. 10, placed on the second unit this time around.
The Bulldogs, who rank seventh in both the D3hockey and USCHO national polls, take a break from the NCHA circuit with an exhibition contest against the USA Under-18 squad on Wednesday, Nov. 25, before they host No. 2 Wisconsin-Stevens Point three days later. Adrian is unbeaten in its last five outings (4-0-1).
