For the second time this season, senior defenseman Gianni Mangone of Marian University men’s hockey has been named to the D3Hockey.com Team of the Week.
Mangone became the all-time leader for goals from a defenseman in Marian men’s hockey and helped lead the Sabres to a pair of conference wins. Mangone scored a pair of goals in a victory over Northland where he re-wrote the record books and then assisted a goal against then-ranked No. 15 St. Scholastica to close out his three-point weekend. The Calgary, Alta. native is currently tied for second amongst defenseman in the NCHA with six goals and is eighth in the conference with 13 points.
