WQAQ Athlete of the Week: Mike Atkinson

By Tom Butto


Senior Mike Atkinson

This week’s WQAQ Athlete of the Week award goes to Mike Atkinson (Sparta, N.J.) of the men’s ice hockey team. Atkinson, a senior assistant captain, scored three goals, two of which were short handed, in a 4-2 win against ECAC foe Clarkson University.

With Atkinson’s hat trick, Quinnipiac improved to 5-1-0 overall with a 2-0-0 mark in the conference. The last time Quinnipiac won five of their first six games was in the 2000-2001 season.

Atkinson’s two shorthanded goals came in the second and third periods. He added his third to complete the hat trick on an empty netter late in the third period.

The Bobcats return to action this weekend, with home games against Harvard and Dartmouth.
