MONTREAL – Ann-Sophie Bettez of Sept Iles, Que., and Danny Mireault of Notre Dame des Prairies, Que., are the McGill University athletes of the week for the period ending Nov. 16, 2008.

Bettez, a 5-foot-4 forward with the women’s hockey team, established single-game school records for assists and points in a 16-1 victory over Concordia last Saturday. She tallied two markers and set up five others to earn points on seven of the team’s 16 goals.

The 21-year-old management sophomore, who was voted CIS rookie of the year last season, is one point shy of leading the nation in scoring with 22 points, including eight goals, in just six games. Bettez is a product of Dawson College.

Mireault, a 6-foot-1, 191-pound goaltender on the men’s hockey team, led McGill to a pair of road victories in Kingston and Ottawa last weekend. The 20-year-old science freshman saved 39 of 42 shots faced for a.929 save percentage and a 1.55 goal-against average.

On Saturday, Mireault was called on cold to replace injured starter Hubert Morin only four minutes into the game and made 16 saves en route to McGill’s 3-0 shutout over Queen’s. The next day, he kicked aside 23 shots in a 4-3 win at Carleton. Mireault played Jr. AAA for Joliette last year while attending College Lanaudiere.
