DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Two out of three games won and two players named as Players of the Week: not a bad weekend for the Dubuque Fighting Saints.

Forward Seamus Malone was named CCM Forward of the Week.  He collected six points, four goals and two assists, and a plus-six rating.  Five of those points came Friday night against the Madison Capitols in a win that clinched a playoff spot for the Saints.  It was his second consecutive game with a hat-trick.  He scored another goal Sunday in a shootout loss to the Capitols.  He's 11th in scoring in the USHL with 55 points in 54 games and leads the league with a plus-28 rating.

Defenseman Hayden Shaw, recently acquired from the Waterloo Blackhawks, was named Defenseman of the Week for the second week in a row.  Shaw had points in all three Saints games this past weekend to extend his scoring streak to six games.  Shaw is currently the third highest scoring defenseman in the league with 41 points in 42 games.  He also ranks 11th in the league with a plus-21 rating.

The Saints take the ice again Friday night when they travel to Madison to take on the Capitols.
