POW Watch: Week Ending Nov. 1, 2021

Sean Farrell didn’t wait long to introduce himself to the college hockey scene.

Farrell, selected in the fourth round (No. 124) of the 2020 NHL Draft by the Montreal Canadiens, racked up seven points (three goals, four assists) in his first action at Harvard en route to being named ECAC Rookie of the Week.

He scored a goal and added two assists in a 9-3 win at Dartmouth on Friday before registering four points (two goals, two assists) in Harvard’s home-opener on Saturday — a 7-3 win over Bentley. All three of Farrell’s goals came on the power play.

The offensive outburst shouldn’t come as a surprise.

Farrell, 20, led the United States Hockey League in scoring last season with 101 points (29 goals, 72 assists) in just 53 games, and added 10 points (two goals, eight assists) in eight games to help the Chicago Steel to a Clark Cup championship.
