BLOOMINGTON, Minn.--Adrian College leads the nation with two selections on the latest D3hockey.com Team of the Week, released on Tuesday by the website. Juniors Cory Dunn (Trenton, Mich./Austin Bruins, NAHL) and Kevin Entmaa (Milton, Ontario/Caledonia Corvairs, GOJHL) represent the Bulldogs at defense and goalie, respectively.
Entmaa made his only appearance of the week count in a big way by making 29 saves--including all four shots he faced in overtime--to help the Bulldogs upend D3hockey.com #1 St. Norbert, 3-2. The 29 stops are his high against the Green Knights, who had won four-straight against Adrian. Adrian now owns a four-point lead in the overall point standings for home-ice in the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association Harris Cup Playoffs, which begin on Feb. 16 at quarterfinal sites.
This marks Entmaa's first-ever appearance on the D3hockey TOW and he is the first AC goaltender to do so as well. The business management this season sports a 10-2 record, 1.74 goals-against average and .937 save percentage which ranks tied for fourth, ninth and sixth in NCAA Division III.
Dunn tallied two points, a plus-2 and six shots on goal while contributing to a perfect penalty kill unit as Adrian swept #1/#2 St. Norbert (3-2 in overtime) and Finlandia (7-1) in a NCHA home sweep on Friday and Saturday. He scored the game-winning goal at 2 minutes and 13 seconds into the extra session to snap Adrian's four-game losing streak against the Green Knights. The assistant captain also helped to kill off eight opponent power plays.
On the season, Dunn paces Adrian with 23 points on three goals and 20 assists. The finance major holds the Adrian record for most D3hockey TOW honors with eight, including three in 2017-18.
Top-ranked Adrian owns a 17-4 overall record and 13-1 NCHA-South Division ledger going into its trip to Illinois this weekend when it plays at Lake Forest (Friday at 5 p.m. Eastern) and Aurora (Saturday at 4 p.m. Eastern), carrying the second-longest winning streak at nine games in the nation behind University of New England (with 11-straight).
