Burlington, Ont. – Colin Campbell has been named IG Wealth Management Ontario University Athletics (OUA) Male Athlete of the Week, powered by Planters, for the period ending October 21, 2018.
Male Athlete of the Week – Colin Campbell (Bateston, N.S.) – 5th Year – Nipissing Lakers
It was a jam-packed week on the ice for the Nipissing Lakers, and one player in particular that took advantage of the three-game week was Colin Campbell, who recorded eight points to propel him to this week’s OUA Male Athlete of the Week selection.
Campbell started the week off with a pair of goals – the team’s second and third on the night – in a victory over Laurentian on Tuesday. He followed that up with two more goals Friday night against Toronto. After the Blues jumped out to a 3-0 lead, Campbell accounted for two of Nipissing’s three goals thereafter, helping the Lakers put up a valiant effort in the eventual one-goal loss. Campbell went from scorer to distributor in the team’s weekend finale, meanwhile, as he set up three teammates on four different goals to help power Nipissing to a 6-2 win over Western on Saturday.
The fifth-year forward now sits in a tie for fifth in the OUA in both goals and points.
