Male Athlete of the Week – Ben Blasko (Kingston, Ont.) – 5th Year – UOIT Ridgebacks

UOIT men's hockey player Ben Blasko had himself quite a week in helping the Ridgebacks end their fall schedule on a high note.

Blasko, a criminology and justice studies student, started the weekend with a goal and an assist in the Ridgebacks 4-3 overtime victory over the UQTR Patriotes on Friday night. He scored the opening goal for UOIT, tying the game 1-1, before assisting on the game-tying goal with 1:53 to go in regulation. On Saturday, he assisted on all three goals in a 3-2 win over the Patriotes, the first time UOIT has swept the season series against UQTR in program history.

Blasko now sits 8th in the OUA in scoring with five goals and 15 assists on the season.
