Dartmouth Male Athlete of the Week:
Matt Lindblad (Winnetka, Ill.), Men's Hockey, Freshman, Forward
Freshman Matt Lindblad (Winnetka, Ill.) got back to the scoring he saw earlier this season with three points in a 7-3 win over Colgate last weekend. Lindblad, who has been sick the last couple of weeks, was finally back to full strength and he showed it when he tipped the puck into the back of the net early in the second period to give the Big Green a 3-1 lead. In the final two goals of the contest, he made two heads-up plays that resulted in the sixth and seventh goals for Dartmouth. He is Dartmouth's highest scoring rookie this season with 17 points and was a +5 in two games last week for the Big Green.
