Reilly Smith named CCHA Player of the Month

Just a few weeks off having been named the National Player of the Week, Miami junior forward Reilly Smith has been named the RBC Financial CCHA Player of the Month for January.

Smith potted seven goals and three assists in Miami’s eight January contests including four game-winning markers as the RedHawks have surged into a 2nd place tie in the CCHA standings and are firmly in contention for an NCAA tournament bid as the season’s penultimate month begins. And, as a credit to Smith’s all-around excellence, he also blocked five shots as he has ramped up his defensive prowess. Miami is now tied for 7th in the nation in team defense after a shaky start.

Overall, Smith has 19 goals and eight assists for 27 points, good for third in the CCHA. His seven game-winning markers on the season are tied for first nationally while Smith’s 0.73 goals-per game average is fourth-best in the country. (source:

Congratulations, Reilly!
