Chris Pickel Jr.'s heroics saved Stony Brook, and the East Coast Elite coach got a little reward for himself out of it.
Pickel Jr. was named the America East Conference Offensive Player of the Week after scoring five goals in two games, including the game-winner with 16 seconds to go in a 9-8 win over Bryant that snapped Stony Brook's two-game losing skid.
The Bayport-Blue Point alum buried a rebound just in the nick of time for the Seawolves, and his nine goals in six games rank second on the team. Stony Brook opens America East play this weekend with a road trip to Hartford.
Congratulations to Coach Pickel!
