Morrisette and Gallucci Earn All-NEHC Honors

MARSHFIELD, Mass. – Seniors Jane Morrisette (Pembroke, Mass.) and Arielle Gallucci (Warren, N.J.) have both earned All-New England Hockey Conference honors, as announced by the conference office Thursday afternoon.

Morrisette earned her second straight postseason honor by earning a spot on the second team.  Gallucci is also a two-time All-NEHC honoree, as the native from New Jersey was named to the third team.

Thursday's announcement marks the second straight year and fourth in the last five seasons that the Beacons had at-least two players earn All-Conference accolades.

As the Beacons leading forward, Morrisette will lead the Beacons into the conference tournament quarterfinal round this Saturday with 10 goals, and seven assists.  The native of Pembroke is tied for the team lead with five power-play and three game-winning goals. She also boasts a +3 rating as UMB will look to earn their second straight trip to the conference championship game.

This season, Morrisette recorded a combined seven multi-point games.  She enters her final postseason as a Beacon with a combined 34 goals and 24 assists in 98 total games played.  She also boats 11 power play goals, four shorthanded goals, and nine game-winners.

For Gallucci, this Saturday's conference tournament game will mark the 110th game in the career of the defenseman, which will set the program record for most games played in a career.  This season the Warren, New Jersey native has appeared in every game for the Beacons and has a +2 rating to-date.  She currently leads the Beacons blue-liners with 36 blocked shots.  Last Friday, Gallucci picked-up on assist in the loss to Norwich University, while against Connecticut College she finished with a +3 rating in the Beacons 3-0 win over the Camels.

The Beacons will travel to Suffolk University on Saturday for a 7:30 p.m. NEHC Quarterfinal game.
