ISN – (FREDERICTON, N.B.) This week’s UNB and Domino’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week is Philippe Maillet from the men’s hockey team.
2nd Year, Business
Maillet, a second-year business student, was named AUS MVP and a First Team All-Star this week, a nice cap to the regular season in which he won the AUS scoring title with 14 goals and 25 assists for 39 points in 28 games played.
Maillet shone this week, scoring an incredible four goals in Monday’s 8-2 win over Acadia in the first game of the AUS final series and playing a key part in the Varsity Reds’ 4-2 victory on Wednesday which secured their fourth AUS championship in five years. Maillet was named playoff MVP.
“Phil continues to grow as a player,” UNB associate coach Rob Hennigar said. “He has stepped up his game on his way to securing the AUS championship and playoff MVP. In Game One of the AUS finals, his remarkable four goals were an extremely rare feat. Phil did this by playing simple, smart, effective hockey which helped lead us to the AUS championship.”
