UMaine Black Bear goalie Matt Morris is the Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week Award winner. Morris stopped all 29 shots thrown at him by UMass in the 3-0 Saturday night shutout win by Maine.

It's the second straight week a UMaine player has won a Hockey East Conference award. Last week, forward Nolan Vesey was named Rookie of the Week.

For the sophomore Morris, the Saturday shutout was his first of his career.

The Black Bears split the two game non-conference series.

Next on the schedule for Maine - home games Friday and Sunday, against UMass-Lowell and BC.
