WAKEFIELD, Mass. – Senior goaltender Kevin Regan (South Boston, Mass.) and senior forward Mike Radja (Yorkville, Ill.) of the University of New Hampshire men’s hockey team were named Pure Hockey Defensive Player of the Week and CCM/RBK Co-Player of the Week, respectively. The announcements were made on Monday afternoon by the Hockey East office.

Regan, who earns this award for the fifth time this season, continues to be lights out in net. The senior netminder has emerged as the league’s top goaltender holding the Black Bears to just three goals during a weekend sweep of Maine. Regan stopped 32 shots on Friday night and followed that up with 28 saves on Saturday. Regan has won nine-straight against league foes with two shutouts and no more than three goals allowed in a single contest. In those nine games, Regan has a .950 save percentage and 1.56 GAA. Regan ranks first in goals against average (1.94), save percentage (.935) and win percentage (.812) in Hockey East play.

Radja had six points (4g, 2a) in a weekend sweep at Maine. The senior forward had a career night Friday setting a pair of career milestones in the process. Radja potted all three goals, his second career hat trick, in a 3-2 win. Radja’s first goal of the game gave him his 100th career point, his second goal gave him his 50th career goal, while his last goal gave him his second career hat trick. On Saturday night, Radja had a goal and two assists in UNH’s 4-1 win. The senior forward has scored in eight of the last nine games tallying 19 points (9g, 10a) for a 2.1 ppg average. He has scored in five-straight Hockey East games, all wins.

The fourth-ranked Wildcats (18-7-1) will face No. 14 Providence (13-10-3) in a home-and-home series this weekend. The teams will meet Friday, Feb. 15 (7 p.m.) in Providence and on Saturday Feb. 16 (7 p.m.) at Whittemore Center.
