GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – Davenport senior attackman Bryan Larocque scored seven goals in a 13-6 victory over Pittsburgh on Friday night, giving him 341 points for his career and setting a new MCLA record.
The previous record of 337 points was held by Brigham Young’s Ted Ferrin, who finished up his career with the Cougars in 2012.
“Bryan is the best pure finisher I’ve ever coached," said Davenport coach Chris Esquivel. "He spends a lot of time working on his stick skills outside of practice. His skill set has allowed us to be very creative in our offense.”
Larocque, a Windsor, Ontario, product, started his career with a 79-point (63g, 16a) rookie year in 2015 that resulted in his Third Team All-American selection.
He posted his most prolific season in 2016 with a 119-point sophomore campaign that featured 96 goals and 23 assists. Larocque was named Second Team All-American at the conclusion of the season.
Last spring, Larocque buried 58 goals along with 14 dimes (72 points) resulting in Honorable Mention All-American status. Perhaps the most impressive part of the 2017 campaign was Larocque played the majority of it on both a torn ACL and meniscus.
Friday’s seven-point output increases his 2018 points total to 72 heading into the CCLA tournament.
