Canton’s Alexa Parigi selected NEWHL Player of  Week

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Canton junior forward Alexa Parigi (Nutley, NJ) has been named the Northeast Women's Hockey League's Player of the Week.

The honor is for games contested from Monday, Dec. 30, through Sunday, Jan. 5, and was announced by the NEWHL on Tuesday, Jan. 7.

Parigi scored both game-winning goals as she was named to the All-Tournament Team following a 2-0 weekend for the Roos as they won the Castleton Invitational.

The junior tallied her first goal of the season with 1:03 left in the second period to give Canton a 2-1 lead in a non-league victory over NEWHL foe Buffalo State on Saturday, Jan. 4.

She followed that performance by tallying the eventual game-winner vs. Northland 5:24 into the first period. The Roos defeated Northland 2-0 and claimed the tournament title.
