CAMBRIDGE, Mass.—Freshman defenseman Patrick McNally of the Harvard men's hockey team has been voted ECAC Hockey/Fischer Hockey Rookie of the Month for December, the league office announced Tuesday.
The Glen Head, N.Y., native began the month with consecutive three-point games, the first two of his career. McNally logged three assists in a 4-4 tie at Massachusetts Dec. 2 and added a goal and two helpers in the Crimson's 4-3 win at Princeton Dec. 10. In last weekend's two-game series at No. 18 North Dakota, he scored a first-period goal to help Harvard tie UND, 4-4, Friday and registered an assist in Saturday's loss.
For the season, McNally is the national scoring leader among freshmen at 1.17 points per game on four goals and 10 assists in 12 games. He ranks third in scoring among all Division I defensemen.
