Lomita native, Jr. Kings product Sansbury garners Atlantic Hockey weekly honors
Atlantic Hockey has announced that Sacred Heart sophomore defenseman Hunter Sansbury is the Atlantic Hockey Defensive Player of the Week.
Sansbury tallied two points on a goal and an assist and blocked seven shots as the Pioneers split a pair on the way to a third-place finish at the Connecticut Ice tournament over the weekend.
In Saturday’s 4-3 win over Yale, the Lomita native handed out a second-period assist and scored the eventual game-winner early in the third. He finished the weekend with four shots on goal.
This is his third career Atlantic Hockey weekly honor and second this season.
During his youth hockey days, Sansbury played for the Los Angeles Jr. Kings and at St. John Bosco High School.
