Marinaccio Named WCHA offensive Player of the week
Bemidji State University - Phillip Marinaccio has been selected for Western Collegiate Hockey Association Offensive Player of the Week honors after helping lead the Beavers to a two-game WCHA series sweep of the University of Alaska Fairbanks, Nov. 4-5.
Marinaccio led now-No. 15 Bemidji State to the road sweep, factoring in both game-winning goals and tying for the WCHA weekend lead with four points. The senior from Nobleton, Ontario tallied a goal and assist during the Beavers’ four-goal, third-period outburst in Friday’s series opener, scoring the eventual winner 1:02 into the stanza and helping on the final marker in a 6-2 victory. In Saturday’s series finale, he picked up an assist on the tie-breaking, game-winner before netting a third-period insurance goal as the Beavers won, 3-1. Marinaccio scored his two goals on just three shots, while finishing the weekend with a +3 rating.
