Jon Dryjowicz-Burek Earns Conference Honors

Nov. 16, 2009

BUZZARDS BAY, MA-A goaltender from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's hockey team has become the first to earn Goalkeeper of the Week honors in the Massachusetts State College Athletic Conference.

Senior goaltender Jon Dryjowicz-Burek (Ludlow, MA/Springfield Jr. Falcons) has been named MASCAC Goaltender of the Week.

Dryjowicz-Burek stopped 53 of 56 shots as the Corsairs defeated Becker, 5-3, and Suffolk, 8-0, in their first two games of the season. The shutout against the Rams was the fifth of Dryjowicz-Burek's career. In 43 career starts, Dryjowicz-Burek is ranked second nationally in both save percentage (.938) and goals against average (1.84). He was named an All-American by the American Hockey Coaches Association as a freshman.

"Jon was typically very solid in net in both games last week," said UMass Dartmouth Head Coach John Rolli. "He was really on top of his game in the home opener against Suffolk."

The Corsairs are 2-0-0 and will return to action when they visit Salem State in their first MASCAC game Tuesday evening.
