CASTLETON, Vt. – After notching a career-high three points in a 3-3 draw at Plymouth St. last Saturday, Castleton men's hockey junior Jimmy Burns has been named to the D3hockey.com Team of the Week, as announced on Wednesday night.
Burns had a breakout game in the Spartans' return to action against Plymouth St., notching an assist on each of Castleton's goals in a 3-3 draw on the road. Burns' first assist knotted the game at 1-1 in the second period, before his second helper put the Spartans up 2-1. After Plymouth St. tied the game in the third period, Burns again helped put his team on top after working a nice give-and-go with Trevor Hanna to make it 3-2 in favor of the Spartans for the time being.
This is Burns' first appearance on the team, and is the first time a Spartan has landed on the team this season. To view the full release, click here.
