MIAC Men’s Hockey Athlete-of-the-Week
Jon Grebosky, Concordia Oakdale, Pa. / West Allegheny
The Concordia men’s hockey team swept its way into first place in the MIAC standing with a pair wins over then-No.13/14-ranked Saint John’s. Cobber rookie Jon Grebosky had a breakout weekend with a hand in five of Concordia’s seven goals with three goals and two assists, and he delivered the overtime game-winner in Friday’s 3-2 victory. For his performance, the MIAC sports information directors honored Grebosky Monday with the MIAC Men’s Hockey Athlete-of-the-Week award.
Grebosky starred in Friday’s thriller, which was capped off with his unassisted game-winner 2:47 into the overtime period. He also assisted on the first goal of the game and scored the Cobbers’ second, as he factored into all three goals in the win. A day later, he helped put away a 4-0 win to cement Concordia’s first sweep of SJU since 2000, as he assisted on the second goal and scored the third to end any hopes of a Johnnie comeback. This season, Grebosky ranks fifth in the MIAC in goals (nine) and he also has five assists for a total of 14 points, and he has a season rating of plus-seven.

Tori Herrmann, Saint Mary’s Elk River, Minn. / Elk River
Saint Mary’s entered last weekend tied with Bethel in the MIAC standings, but thanks to the strong goaltending effort of junior Tori Hermann, the Cardinals earned a huge sweep and now sit alone in third place. Hermann allowed just one goal in two games, earning one shutout and stopping 41 of 42 shots for a 0.50 goals against average and a .976 save percentage. For her performance, the MIAC sports information directors honored Hermann Monday with her second MIAC Women’s Hockey Athlete-of-the-Week award of the 2014-15 season.
Hermann got her team off to a good start with a 17-save performance and just one goal allowed in Friday’s 2-1 victory over the Royals on their home ice. Saturday, she was even better in front of Saint Mary’s home fans. Hermann stopped all 24 Bethel shots to earn her second shutout of the season and give her team a dramatic 1-0 victory. This season, Hermann ranks fourth in the MIAC in both goals against average (1.59) and save percentage (.939), and she’s even better in conference play with the MIAC’s best save percentage (.962) and third-best GAA (0.99).
