Former Cushing Star Cotton Earns Hockey East Accolade
Boston College junior forward and former Cushing Academy standout David Cotton has been named the Hockey East Player of the Month for November after leading the league in goals (7) and points (11) last month with a pair of game-winners and a plus-7 rating.
Cotton was one point shy of matching his career-high point streak (7) before being held scoreless by Boston University on Saturday as the calendar turned to December. He put together a career-high goal scoring streak of five games last month from Nov. 3 to Nov. 23.
With 10 goals in 12 games this season, Cotton is the national leader in goals per game. He has already matched his career-high in goals (set as a rookie) and eclipsed his total from last year (9). The winger leads Hockey East in shots on goal per game (3.92) and sits fourth in points per game (1.25).
He is one of only four players nationally with a pair of four-point games and the only player in Hockey East with two. His first career multi-goal game was a hat trick Oct. 13 at Wisconsin, one of his three multi-goal performances this year.
