CHARLOTTETOWN, P.E.I. – Hockey players Rachel Colle and Filip Rydstrom are the UPEI Panther Subway athletes of the week.
Colle, a fourth-year business student from Toronto, helped the Panthers split a pair of weekend games, beating Dalhousie 2-1 and losing 3-1 to UNB.
“Rachel’s weekend personified her first half,” said coach Bruce Donaldson. “She worked hard, played a regular shift and power play, and helped the penalty kill go 11-for-12. Rachel leads with character, and by example, she is a very important player for us.”
Rydstrom, a second-year arts student from Stockholm, Sweden, scored a goal and notched a pair of assists as the Panthers dropped a 5-2 game to Acadia and beat Saint Mary’s 4-3.
“Filip had another great week,” said coach Forbes McPherson. “He has been a much-improved player over last season. Filip is very driven every single day, and it is paying off on the weekends.”
