Daniel Weiniger Named NESCAC Men's Hockey Player of the Week

BRUNSWICK, Maine - Bowdoin senior co-captain Daniel Weiniger (Warren, N.J.) has been named the New England Small College Men's Ice Hockey Player of the Week.

The forward was at his best on Saturday, when he netted a hat trick with a goal in each period of his team's 5-2 win over Hamilton. Weiniger also collected a goal and an assist in a 6-3 loss to Amherst on Friday. It is the second time this season that he has earned NESCAC Player of the Week recognition.
