Bud Fisher Named WQAQ Sports Athlete of the Week
HAMDEN — The WQAQ Sports Department has named Men’s Ice Hockey goaltender Bud Fisher its Athlete of the Week for the week ending on January 31, 2007.
The sophomore netminder christened the TD Banknorth Sports Center on Sunday by pitching a shutout against Holy Cross. Fisher stopped 14 shots to earn his second shut-out of the season and 4th of his Quinnipiac career. On Tuesday, Fisher backstopped the Bobcats to a 2-2 tie against ECAC Hockey League foe Harvard by stopping 39 Crimson shots.
Fisher has started every game Quinnipiac has played this season, and has been a major factor in the Bobcats meteoric rise into the national polls. In the latest USCHO.com/CSTV National Poll, Quinnipiac is ranked 18th in the country. The Bobcats are 1 point behind St. Lawrence for first place in the ECACHL heading into this weekend.
Quinnipiac is back in action Friday against ECACHL and New Haven area rival Yale at the TD Banknorth Sports Center. Game-time is set for 7 pm. On Saturday night the Bobcats travel to Providence, RI and the Meehan Auditorium to do battle with Brown.
