Costello Garners Hockey East Honors

Former Cedar Rapids RoughRider and Des Moines Buccaneer, Chad Costello was named Hockey East Rookie of the Week.

In Northeastern’s matchup with Maine last Friday at Alfond Arena, Costello assisted on Northeastern’s first goal, then scored the game-winning goal as the Huskies rolled to a 6-1 win. The following night, he scored the first goal of the game as the Huskies eventually lost, 2-1, in overtime. His goal on Saturday was his 10th of the season, giving him a 10-10-20 scoring line in 24 games. The last NU freshman to get 20 points in a season was current senior Mike Morris, who had a 9-12-21 line in 26 games in 2002-03.

This is the 2nd time Chad has been named the Rookie of the Week.
