Former Chilliwack Chief wins NCAA Player of the Week award

Connor McCarthy led his Clarkson Golden Knights to a big win over the St. Lawrence Saints.

A surprising offensive outburst has earned Chilliwack Chiefs alum Connor McCarthy an NCAA award.

The big blueliner scored twice and set up the winning goal for Clarkson University last weekend, leading the Golden Knights to a 5-1 win over the St. Lawrence Saints.

McCarthy was recognized as the East Coast Athletic Conference Player of the Week.

The defenceman is in his third season at Clarkson, and his numbers have ticked up significantly. The Quebec kid collected four goals and 14 points in 39 games in 2018-19. In just 15 games so far this year, the 23 year old has four goals and nine points.

McCarthy spent two seasons (2015-16 and 2016-17) with the Chilliwack Chiefs.


In other Chiefs alum news, forward Ryan Miotto scored his first career NCAA goal last weekend as his Canisius College Griffins beat Army Nov. 30.

Miotto scored shorthanded in the second period to tie the game at 2-2.

Canisius College ended up winning 3-2 in overtime.

Miotto played 62 regular season and playoff games for Chilliwack during the 2017-19 BCHL season before being traded to the Alberni Valley Bulldogs.

He’s in his freshman season with the Griffins, with the one goal and eight penalty minutes in 12 games so far.
