This week’s player to watch is Shane Straubinger. The sophomore defenseman has used his size and hockey IQ to become a huge part of Delaware’s defensive game. No matter what the score is, you can count on Shane to bring his best efforts. Every time he steps on the ice, his grit, determination and passion for this team is shown. Although Shane is a defenseman at heart, he has recently shown a goal scorers touch with a game winning goal against IUP. His determination to win is contagious, pushing teammates to be their best selves on the ice. Shane’s work ethic on and off the ice makes him a strong player in the future of this program. Look for #12 this weekend as the Blue Hens battle against URI at home.
