Former Gloucester Ranger Marc Rancourt has been named the top collegiate player in the country after helping lead the St. Mary's Huskies to the Atlantic Conference Championship.

Rancourt led the CIS with 57 points in 28 games to become only the second Husky in the school's history to win the Senator Joseph A. Sullivan Trophy. He also led the country in assists and was tied for first in game-winning goals with five, recording at least one point in 26 of his 28 conference games.

The fourth year commerce student also had a 19-game point streak and was named a First Team CIS All-Star. And if all that wasn't enough, he also was able to maintain a 3.91 GPA while averaging two points per game and was a finalist for the Dr. Randy Gregg Award for Outstanding Student Athlete.

The Huskies are ranked fourth in the latest CIS national poll heading into the University Cup tournament which gets underway today in Thunder Bay. This past weekend they defeated the number one ranked University of New Brunswick Varsity Reds in the third and deciding game of the AUS Championship. Rancourt led all scorers during the conference playoffs with five goals and five assists in seven games.

Rancourt came up through the Gloucester Rangers Minor Hockey Association before being selected by the Belleville Bulls in the 2001 Priority Selection Draft.

During his four year stint with the Bulls he scored 57 goals and 119 assists in 253 games. In his final year, he scored 26 goals and 52 assists in 68 games as a 20-year-old.
