Danis Named UCSHO Defensive Player of the Week

Jan. 25, 2002

Sophomore Yann Danis (Lafontaine, QUE) was named the US College Hockey Online Defensive Player of the Week for the week ending 1/20/02.

A goalie, he earned this honor for the first time in his career, during the same week that he was named the ECAC's Player of the Week. Danis earns the honor after stopping 53 of 54 shots in two weekend games, leading Brown to two straight victories and a season-high three-game winning streak.

On Friday, Danis picked up his third win over the season with 26 saves in a 4-1 win over #2 St. Cloud State, a team that has one of the most potent offenses in the country. He held the team scoreless for 58:25, narrowly missing his first career shutout and gave Brown it's biggest win in years.

The next night, Danis earned his first career shutout with a 27-save effort in a 2-0 win over Connecticut. The shutout marked the fourth straight shutout for the Bears over UConn, as Brown has now outscored the Huskies by a 26-0 margin.
