Verreault-Paul, a 5-foot-10, 180-pound forward with the hockey Redmen, scored four points in road victories over Nipissing and Ryerson last weekend. The 24-year-old psychology senior scored three goals, including the game-winner with 11 seconds remaining, in a 4-3 decision over the Rams on Sunday as the No.2-ranked Redmen improved to 12-1-2. Verreault-Paul also assisted on the winning tally in a 4-1 conquest at Nipissing, Saturday. He is currently third in the CIS goal-scoring race with 11 in his last six contests. Prior to enrolling at McGill, he attended College de Chicoutimi while playing junior hockey with the Chicoutimi Sagueneens.
Peroff, a 5-foot-6 forward with the women's hockey team, scored five points in two games as McGill swept a pair of games over Ottawa and Concordia last weekend. The 22-yeqar-old religious studied and leadership senior netted her first career hat-trick and assisted on two other goals in a 6-5 victory at Concordia, Sunday. She attended Keswick high school before enrolling at McGill in 2007.
