After taking home the Hockey East Rookie of the Year award last season, Scott Wilson is looking to take his game to the next level for UMass Lowell in the second half of the collegiate schedule.

Wilson, now a sophomore, was over a point-per-game player last season; in 37 games played, Wilson registered 16 goals and 22 assists. This season, Wilson has 12 points through the River Hawks first 14 games, including 11 points (2G, 9A) in his last six games. Last season Wilson went on a tear in the second half, and his teammates will be looking for that again as they head into the stretch run and Hockey East tournament.

“His first half [last season] was okay, but in the second half he came on very strong,” UMass Lowell coach Norm Bazin said. “We were certainly very happy that he was one of the guys making an impact for us like he did. Scott has to put back-to-back good seasons together now, and I think he is lining himself up (for a second half surge).”
