PROVIDENCE, R.I. – It was announced on Monday (March 12) that Providence College sophomore forward Josh Wilkins was named Hockey East Co-Player of the Week. Wilkins shared the honor with Northeastern’s Dylan Sikura.

The Raleigh, North Carolina native broke a 3-3 tie with 3:10 remaining in Providence’s 4-3 win over Maine in Game One of the Hockey East Quarterfinals on Friday night. On Saturday, Wilkins’ goal in the first period gave the Friars a 3-0 lead and was the eventual game-winner in a 3-2 Providence win to sweep the series.

Through 36 games in 2017-18, Wilkins has tallied a career-high 15 goals and has also added in 15 assists for his second-consecutive campaign of at least 30 points. Wilkins is tied for first in the Hockey East in game-winning goals (5) alongside Northeastern’s Adam Gaudette and tied for second nationally in that category.

The Friars will battle Northeastern in the Hockey East Semifinals on Friday night at TD Garden in Boston, Mass., seeking their first Hockey East Championship appearance since 2001. Puck drop is slated for 8 p.m. on NESN Plus and ESPN3.
