University of Maine senior forward Spencer Abbott has been named the Hockey East Player of the Month, the conference announced today.

Abbott tallied six goals and nine assists in five games in December, including six points in the Florida College Classic, where he was named the tournament MVP.

He also scored the game-winner in each of two wins at Vermont.

The Black Bears (8-7-1, 5-6-1 in Hockey East) return to Alfond Arena Wednesday at 7 p.m. for Maine's third game against Vermont. Maine then plays Saturday night in Fenway Park, against New Hampshire.
