LEICESTER, Mass. ---- Freshman forward Jason Diamond (Lakeville, Conn. / Connecticut Nighthawks (USPHL)) of the Becker College men’s ice hockey team has been named the Becker Athlete of the Week for the week ending February 3, 2019.

Diamond scored the overtime game-winner in the Hawks’ 3-2 victory over Western New England University on Friday night at the Fidelity Bank Worcester Ice Center. With the game tied at 2-2 heading into overtime, it appeared heading to a tie. But with 2:09 remaining in the extra period, Diamond took a pass from fellow freshman forward Zachary Bettmeng (Sioux Falls, S.D. / Steele County Blades) and put in his third career goal as the Becker bench exploded in celebration.

The Hawks are back on the ice on Friday when they host Salve Regina University in a 7:00 p.m. game.
