Washington Capitals prospect Joaquim Lemay has been named the week six NCHC Defenseman of the Week following his three-point weekend against the LIU Sharks. This is the second time this season that the 2021 fourth-round pick has been named the NCHC defenseman of the week. He was dubbed the title back in week two of the college hockey season.
Sophomore blueliner Jo Lemay has been tabbed as the Week 6 NCHC Defenseman of the Week after a three-point weekend against the Long Island Sharks.
Lemay assisted on the Mavericks second goal of the game on Friday night helping set up Ty Mueller’s power play goal, 36 seconds into the 2nd period. On Saturday night, Lemay once again helped set up Mueller for a goal that put the Mavericks up 2-0 in the 2ndperiod. 52 seconds into overtime, Lemay ripped home a one-timer to secure a weekend sweep over the Sharks for his third goal of the campaign.

This marks the third weekly award of the season for the Mavericks and second of the year for Lemay. The Omaha defenseman was named Defenseman of the Week in Week 2 while Griffin Ludtke captured the same award last week in Week 5.
Lemay’s six points currently ranks second on the team in points and 10th among NCHC blueliners.
Lemay and the Mavericks head to Denver this weekend to take on the No. 3 Pioneers to resume NCHC play.
