Players of the Month

November

Forward of the Month

Forward of the Month: Dylan Rumpke - Yellowstone Quake

Dylan Rumpke

Rumpke was as consistent as they come in November, scoring at least one goal AND one assist in every single game en route to 30 points in 10 contests. Rumpke highlighted his remarkable month with three game-winning tallies and two hat-tricks, and logged three or more points in five of his 10 outings. After a comparably quiet September/October slate with 5g-8a—13pts in 14 games, Rumpke’s season totals now sit at a whopping 20g-23a—43pts in just 24 contests following his sprint through November.

Defenseman of the Month

Defenseman of the Month: Tami Merilainen - Northeast Generals

Tami Merilainen

Merilainen saw NA3HL action just five times in November, but dictated the action whenever he stepped on the ice. With two points in each outing, Merilainen steadied the Generals’ blue line while helping to fuel their offensive punch. Following a two-assist outing on Nov. 10, Merilainen posted a goal and an assist in each of the remaining four games he played in for 4g-6a—10pts in his five games during November. The Finnish defenseman also logged a game-winner on Nov. 17.

Goalie of the Month

Goalie of the Month: Viktor Wennberg - Great Falls Americans

Viktor Wennberg

Wennberg’s stellar season continued in November, where the net minder went 5-0-1 in his six appearances with a .960 save percentage and stingy 1.05 GAA to go with a pair of shutouts. After beginning the month with four straight wins to stretch his streak at the time to eight W’s in a row, Wennberg posted a .906 or higher in each contest en route to stopping 143 of 149 pucks in the month of November. Wennberg made at least 20 saves in each of the five games he started, and only allowed more than one goal in one game against the high-scoring Sheridan Hawks. Wennberg now boasts a .951 save percentage and 1.36 GAA on the year.

October

Forward of the Month

Forward of the Month: Koyle Bankauskas - Northeast Generals

Koyle Bankauskas

The League’s leading scorer set the ice ablaze in October, posting at least two points in each one of his 10 games throughout the month. In total, Bankauskas tallied a whopping 17g-19a—36 pts to extend his season total to 26g-25a—51pts in just 16 games. Bankauskas also nabbed three hat-tricks last month, en route to four games with at least four points. The forward carries a now 13-game point streak into November as he looks to build on his remarkable start.

Defenseman of the Month

Defenseman of the Month: Gunner Moore - Atlanta Capitals

Gunner Moore

Moore and the Capitals saw home ice just once in nine games during October, but the blueliner’s offensive talent shone through just the same. Opening the month with a six-game point streak, the 6-foot-1 Moore failed to hit the scoresheet just once during the month, and bagged three multi-point games in his final five October outings. Moore also came up clutch for the Capitals, netting two game-winners on Oct. 12 and Oct. 13, and bagged his first two-goal game of the season on the 13th. 

 

Runner-Up: Logan Syrup, Sheridan Hawks

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Joey Boccardi, St. Louis Jr. Blues — Trevor Christopher, Skylands Kings — Benjamin Cope, Louisiana Drillers — Sean Davidson, Granite City Lumberjacks — Michael Heitkamp, Rochester Grizzlies — Connor Lefkof, Danbury Colonials — Deacon More, Northeast Generals — Matej Palfy, Texas Brahmas — Harrison Stewart, North Iowa Bulls — Tadeas Vicha, Texas Roadrunners

 

Goalie of the Month

Goalie of the Month: Mathias Backstrom - Rochester Grizzlies

Mathias Backstrom

Backstrom started four games for the Grizzlies against tough competition in October, splitting the set but posting a .903 save percentage or better in each game. After starting the month with a tough loss to the Chill in which he gave up three goals, Backstrom stepped up in a big way, stopping 26 of 27 pucks in a win over Peoria and 34 of 36 to stymie high-powered Granite City. The Lumberjacks forced Backstrom into 27 saves as they took the rematch, but the Swedish net minder capped off his month with 115 saves in just three starts, along with a .935 save percentage and stingy 1.97 GAA. 

 

Runner-Up: Kayden Hargraves, Texas Brahmas

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Cole Garver, Texas Roadrunners — Andrew Herms, Skylands Kings — Michael Janke, Coulee Region Chill — Nate Johnston, Granite City Lumberjacks — Grady Reis, Louisiana Drillers — Justin Simmons, Northeast Generals — Dysen Skinner, North Iowa Bulls — Brett Tome, St. Louis Jr. Blues — Cole Walter, Peoria Mustangs

 
September

Forward of the Month

Forward of the Month: Liam Murphy - Elmira Jr. Soaring Eagles

Liam Murphy

Elmira got off to a hot start this season thanks to consistency in its attack, led in large part by Liam Murphy. Murphy bagged points in each of Elmira’s seven games this season, including four multi-point games, two four-point games, two multi-goal games and a hat-trick. In total, Murphy has racked up seven goals and eight assists for 15 points — an average of more than two points per game in the young season — which is good for a share of the league scoring lead. 

 

Runner-Up: Hazen McKay, Bozeman Icedogs

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Kolye Bankauskas, Northeast Generals — Brody Boyce, Great Falls Americans — James Clarke, Skylands Kings — Isaac Ellingson, Helena Bighorns — Sean Hofstetter, St. Louis Jr. Blues — Cole Thomas Johnson, Atlanta Capitals — Austin Keil, Peoria Mustangs — RJ Muckensturm, Mid Cities Jr. Stars — Lucas Newman, Rochester Grizzlies — Blake Siewertsen, Louisiana Drillers — Zack Simon, North Iowa Bulls — Bailey Sommers, Granite City Lumberjacks — Dylan Svoboda, Willmar Warhawks — Anthony Viola, New England Stars — Garrett Wilderman, Texas Roadrunners — Declan Young, Gillette Wild

 

Defenseman of the Month

Defenseman of the Month: Joey Allegrini - Atlanta Capitals

Joey Allegrini

Joey Allegrini’s first NA3HL campaign is certainly off on the right foot, as the 5-foot-9 blueliner paces all active NA3HL defensemen with 10 points in eight games. Allegrini boasts points in seven of his eight starts, and potted his first goal in just his second game. The Las Vegas native has also netted three multi-point games, and is +3 through the start of the season. Two of those multi-point games came in his last three outings, so expect even more from Allegrini in October. 

 

Runner-Up: Joey Boccardi, St. Louis Jr. Blues

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Ethan Becker, Gillette Wild — Ben Cope, Louisiana Drillers — Sean Davidson, Granite City Lumberjacks — Zachary Eddington, Peoria Mustangs — Ryan Falls, Northeast Generals — Connor Frye, Missoula Jr. Bruins — Michael Heitkamp, Rochester Grizzlies — Justin Hiler, Skylands Kings — Ian McIntosh, Helena Bighorns — Sam Miller, Elmira Jr. Soaring Eagles — Luke Richesin, Great Falls Americans — Tadeas Vicha, Texas Roadrunners

 

Goalie of the Month

Goalie of the Month: Nick Konkel - Elmira Jr. Soaring Eagles

Nick Konkel

While Murphy guided Elmira’s offensive efforts, Nick Konkel provided a steady presence between the pipes with three wins in three starts and just three goals allowed in that span. Konkel soared through the opening month, posting 78 total saves and a shutout as the Eagles topped Long Beach, Danbury and the New England Knights in his appearances. Among goalies with three or more starts, Konkel’s 78 stops lead the way, and he ranks second with a .963 save percentage and a 1.13 GAA. 

 

Runner-Up: Shane Soderwall, Rochester Grizzlies 

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): John Driscoll, Northeast Generals — Garrett Dryden, Helena Bighorns — Luc Haggitt, Willmar Warhawks — Nate Johnston, Granite City Lumberjacks — Jacob King, Skylands Kings — Matt Marini, New England Stars — Jaeger Reed, Texas Roadrunners — Grady Reis, Louisiana Drillers — Anthony Seykora, Gillette Wild — Brett Tome, St. Louis Jr. Blues — Viktor Wennberg, Great Falls Americans
