Vecchione Tops NCAA Division I Scorers

Two skaters from Hockey East, one from the ECAC, and one from the NCHC topped the scroll of leading scorers in NCAA Division I Men's Hockey through Halloween, according to USCHO.com.

Headlining the list was Union College senior forward Mike Vecchione, who has tallied 10 goals and six assists for 16 points in eight games. His 10 goals put him ahead of Notre Dame junior forward and NHL draftee Anders Bjork, who has collected 7-9—16 points in eight outings and is property of the Boston Bruins.

In third place is North Dakota sophomore forward Brock Boeser, a Vancouver Canucks draft choice and 2016 NCAA champion, with 6-6—12 points in seven appearances. Coming in fourth overall is Joe Gambardella, a senior forward at Massachusetts-Lowell who has put up 5-7—12 points in eight starts. 

Eight players are tied with 11 points apiece, paced goal-wise by Gambardella's junior UML teammate, C.J. Smith, who has notched 5-6—11 points in eight contests.
