PROVIDENCE, RI - Brown University men's ice hockey forward Jarred Smith (Pepper Pike, OH) has been named the ECAC Hockey Rookie of the Week. A center, Smith was one of the Bears top players over the weekend, helping to lead Brown to a road split at Colgate (W, 4-1) and #3 Cornell (L, 5-1).
Smith scored the first two goals of his career over the weekend with one in each game. On Friday night at Colgate, Smith scored what would prove to be the game-winning goal late in the second period, as Brown held a 2-1 lead heading into the final 20 minutes. The win was Brown's first over Colgate in Hamilton since February 1993. The next night at Cornell, Smith scored his second goal in as many games, bringing Brown to within 2-1 early in the third period.
For the season, Smith has played in 16 games and has tallied four points (2g, 2a).
