EDMONTON – On a weekend where every single MacEwan player recorded at least one point in back-to-back lopsided wins over Briercrest College, any number of Griffins could be considered for the three stars.

Veteran Bryan Arneson is as deserving as any after scoring five of MacEwan's 26 goals on the weekend and adding an assist.

The fourth-year forward led the Griffins to a 15-3 win over the Clippers on Friday night with two goals and an assist, before recording a hat trick in MacEwan's 11-3 win on Saturday, scoring the game-winning goal in the second period.

With a shot that makes him a threat to score every time he shoots the puck, Arneson is dangerous offensively every time he's on the ice, but that doesn't stop him from being responsible defensively as he's a nightmare for opposing forwards with a tenacious backcheck.

For the season, Arneson has nine points in eight games, tied for sixth in the ACAC scoring race.

The Griffins have a bye this weekend before returning to action against SAIT on Nov. 15-16.
