Nicholson and Paliani named Athletes of the Week
Salad King Athletes of the Week
The first Athlete of the Week is Devon Paliani (LaSalle, Ont.) of the men's hockey team. Paliani was rewarded for his hard work to start the season this week, scoring his first career hat trick as a Ram. Paliani scored 20 seconds into the second period against Toronto to tie the game, and then added some insurance when he made the score 4-1 and later in the third at 6-2. The third year's production this week helped the Rams stay atop the goal scoring race, topping the league with a whopping 6.67 goals per game so far.
Lauren Nicholson (Dresden, Ont.) is our second Athlete of the Week. In the women's hockey team's first regular season game, Nicholson had two points to lead the Rams to a win over Windsor on opening day. Nicholson recorded an assist on the Rams' second goal which gave them a lead at the time, and then proceeded to score the eventual game-winning goal shorthanded.
Both student-athletes will receive a $20 gift certificate to Salad King.
