The UNB Varsity Reds/Papa John’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week is Chris Clapperton, from the men’s hockey team.

After a four-week lay-off, recovering from post-concussion symptoms, Clapperton had an incredible return to the Varsity Reds line-up.

In UNB’s 8-1 win over UPEI on Friday, he scored twice and set up another goal, earning first star honours.

On Saturday, in Moncton, Clapperton recorded another three-point night. He scored twice, including the game-winning goal, and added an assist, to help the Varsity Reds to a 5-3 win.

“Chris has shown a great deal of resilience the past few weeks in getting himself ready to perform at a key level for our team,” said Varsity Reds head coach Gardiner MacDougall. “He just got started this past weekend with a strong return to our line-up. His return helped in two key wins to keep the Varsity Reds in first place in the ultra-competitive AUS.”
