Daoust and Dorion named McGill Ye Olde Orchard athletes of the week
MONTREAL - Mélodie Daoust of Valleyfield, Que., and Marc-André Dorion of St. Hubert, Que., are the McGill University - Ye Olde Orchard athletes of the week, sponsored by Ye Olde Orchard Pub, for the period ending Jan. 8, 2012.
Daoust, a 5-foot-6 centre with the women's hockey team, celebrated her 20th birthday last Saturday with a four-point performance as top-ranked McGill blanked Yale University 4-0 in New Haven, Conn. It was the first game in more than a month for the physical education freshmen, who returned from a hand injury in time to register a natural hat-trick, scoring the first three goals of the contest, including the game-winning marker. Also a member of the Canadian national under 20-team, the highly-recruited Daoust attended Collège Edouard-Montpetit before enrolling at McGill last semester.
Dorion, a 5-foot-11, 185-pound defenceman with the hockey Redmen, scored four points in two victories last week and is the top-scoring rearguard in the nation with 29 points, including five goals, in 18 games. The 24-year-old physical education senior registered a pair of assists in a 3-1 victory over Ottawa last Friday, assisting on the winning goal. The next night, he tallied one goal and added an assist in a 5-2 win over Ryerson and his game-winner against the Rams was the 6,000th regular season goal in team history, dating all the way back to the first Canadian intercollegiate league in 1902. A two-time All-Canadian who was named as the most outstanding defenceman in the CIS during his sophomore season, Dorion starred for Baie Comeau in the QMJHL and attended Collège de Baie Comeau prior to enrolling at McGill in 2008.
Both athletes will receive a gift certificate from Ye Olde Orchard Pub.
