MANSFIELD, Mass. – Freshman Jake Cox (Columbus, Ga.) and freshman JT Kossakowski (Ellburn, Ill.) of the Southern New Hampshire University ice hockey team were recognized by the Northeast-10 Conference on Tuesday, as the league announced its weekly awards recipients.

Cox was selected as the Conference’s Rookie of the Week while Kossakowski was tabbed as the NE10 Goalie of the Week.

Cox has recorded points in seven consecutive games.  His hat trick last Tuesday helped lead the Penmen to a 4-1 win over Stonehill.  He contributed a goal and an assist in the team’s split at Assumption over the weekend.  Cox leads the Penmen with 12 points (five goals, seven assists).

Kossakowski stopped 47 of 49 shots on Friday at Assumption to earn his first career win in just his second start for SNHU.

The other weekly Northeast-10 Conference ice hockey award this week went to Assumption junior Robert Roche (Holden, Mass.). Over the week, he had five points, including two assists and a game-winning goal during two contests against SNHU.
