The Atlantic Hockey Association released its month-end honors for November, with the Bentley Falcons picking up two award honors. Forward Alex Grieve won the Travel Team USA Player of the Month Award, while goalie Branden Komm picked up Goalie of the Month honors. Bentley has now picked up awards in both month-end announcements from the AHA; freshman Max French won Rookie of the Month honors in October.
Grieve had 13 points across seven games in November, averaging an assist per game and scoring six goals. He was involved in one game-winner with a direct assist on Andrew Gladiuk‘s overtime winner against Holy Cross. He had multiple points in five games in the month and has at least one point in each of Bentley’s last seven games. Most recently, he had a goal and two assists in Colorado as the Falcons extended their undefeated streak to four to end the month. His 1.31 points per game average is 14th best in the nation, and his 13 points are fourth best in the AHA. His six goals ranks second in the league.
Komm, meanwhile, turned in a month for the ages as he creeps closer to the all-time wins record at Bentley. His 2.24 month-GAA lowered his season goals against average to 2.69 while posting a 4-1-1 record with one no-decision. His lone defeat came in a 2-1 defeat to Merrimack, and his only poor performance came against AIC in an 8-7 loss. Over the Bentley unbeaten stretch, he’s allowed just six goals, none more than two in a game, with one shutout. His 33 career victories now ranks second all-time in program history, two back of the record, and his five shutouts is one back of tying the all-time record of six.
The Falcons look to defend their current unbeaten streak on Friday, when they host Robert Morris in the first of two consecutive contests.
