Georgetown's Brendan Cannon Named ECAC Offensive Player of the Week
April 4, 2007
Washington, D.C. - Georgetown University junior Brendan Cannon (Haverford, Pa./The Haverford School) was named the ECAC Co-Offensive Player of the Week today. Cannon shared the award with Hobart junior attackman Jamie Kirk.
Cannon being named Offensive Player of the Week marked the second time this season a Hoya player had earned an ECAC weekly award, as freshman Craig Dowd (East Northport, N.Y./Northport) was named the league's rookie of the week on March 19.
In Georgetown's 10-9 win over seventh-ranked Navy last Saturday, Cannon had the most explosive day of his career, scoring three goals and recording four assists for seven points, eclipsing his previous career high of five points. Trailing 5-4 at halftime, Cannon scored two unassisted goals and assisted on two more in a five-goal third quarter as the Hoyas opened up a 9-7 lead. He scored the team's final goal to seal the win over the Midshipmen.
Cannon leads Georgetown with 23 points, scoring nine goals and recording a team-high 14 assists. The 5-9, 165-pound attackman ranks tied for second in the ECAC and seventh nationally in assists (2.0 per game). He is tied for sixth in the ECAC in scoring, averaging 3.29 points per game.
In three years on the Hilltop, Cannon has made his presence felt. In 34 career games, he has scored 38 goals and added 54 assists for 92 points. His 32 assists during his sophomore year were tied for the most in a single season at Georgetown and his current career total (54) ranks tied for ninth all-time. Cannon's 92 career points rank eighth all-time at Georgetown.
Cannon, the ECAC Preseason Offensive Player of the Year, was not the only player honored this week, as junior goalie Miles Kass (Rye, N.Y./Hotchkiss) was named to the ECAC Honor Roll. Kass made 11 saves in the Hoyas' 10-9 win over No. 7 Navy last weekend.
Georgetown plays its third-straight home game this weekend, hosting ECAC rival Fairfield on Saturday, April 7. Face-off at the Multi-Sport Field is slated for 1 p.m.
