Bryant freshman attackman JK Poirier (Malvern Prep) has been named the Northeast Conference Rookie of the Month for making an immediate impact on the Bulldogs just six games into his rookie season.
Poirier leads all conference rookies in scoring with seven points off two goals and five assists. He has appeared in every game this season, starting in the last four. In his first career start he recorded his first collegiate point, coming in a hard-fought 7-6 win over Army on the road. The point came on an assist on a Bulldog go-ahead goal in the third.
He then notched his first collegiate goal against Bellarmine on Mar. 10 and has scored goals in each of the last two games. Another of the Coatesville native’s goals was the game-winning tally Saturday against Presbyterian, also chipping in a pair of assists for a career-high three points in the 9-5 win.
Against Army, Poirier collected a career-best four ground balls and has seven on the season. He also forced caused turnovers against Vermont and Fairfield and has ripped off 14 shots on the year, including seven against Presbyterian, with seven shots on goal so far.
