The United States Hockey League has awarded Des Moines’ Michael Bevilacqua as Defenseman of the Week, following a weekend sweep and pair of shutout for the Buccaneers.
Bevilacqua had a point in each of the Buccaneers three victories over the weekend, including the game-winning goal in overtime on Friday. Bevilacqua, a Bowling Green commit, has seven goals this season, four have been game-winning goals and three of those have come in overtime. A native of Buffalo, NY, Bevilacqua reached the 30 point mark on the season this weekend and is third on the team in scoring.
“Michael has been our rock on and off the ice this season for our team,” said Curley. “He has had a knack for timely goals for us this season, demonstrating his confidence and poise in crucial moments, exemplified once again this weekend. He has been an outstanding Buccaneer and we will continue to look to his leadership down the stretch.”
