Central Star of the Week: Jack Craycroft - Peoria Mustangs

Jack Craycroft

Craycroft put up big numbers from the blue line this week, notching 2g-6a—8pts and a stout +9 rating in a pair of wins over Wausau. His crowning moment came in Friday’s tilt, where the Ankney, IA native tallied a pair of goals — his first time lighting the lamp this season — to go with a whopping four helpers. To put a cherry on top, Craycroft’s first marker served as the game-winner in a 10-2 romp. Craycroft followed up his breakout effort with a second straight multi-point effort, posting a pair of assists in Saturday’s win as well. The 2000-born defenseman now boasts 2g-18a—20pts and a +24 rating through 20 games this season.

Deacon More

The Generals’ leading scorer was as consistent as they come in quite a busy week, totaling 4g-5a—9pts as he found the scoresheet in each one of his six games from the Northeast blue line as the Southern Showcase got underway in North Texas. More played a key role in the Generals’ attack, remarkably scoring in all but two games from a defensive role. Even when he didn’t light the lamp, More chipped in assists for his team — including a four-assist performance against Long Beach on the 7th — to stretch his streak to eight games, netting 6g-7a—13pts in that span. Enjoying an incredibly productive campaign, More has bagged 14g-19a—33pts in just 22 games this season to lead all NA3HL defensemen.

Frontier Star of the Week: Blake Billings - Sheridan Hawks

Blake Billings

Billings saw action twice this week as the Hawks tangled with the Americans in a pair of heavyweight bouts. His play was an important driver to his team picking up two massive wins over their Frontier Division rivals, as the Sheridan native put up consecutive two-point efforts to keep his incredible season-long point streak alive. Billings bagged the game-winning goal and an assist in Friday’s win, then turned full playmaker with a pair of helpers on Saturday to pace a pair of stellar victories. Recording at least a point in every game played this season, the 2001-born sniper has 22g-23a—45pts in just 19 outings, good for fourth among all NA3HL skaters.

Cooper then notched a fourth straight multi-point outing dating back to Dec. 17 with two assists on Saturday, and capped off his week with a +1 rating as the Brahmas knocked off Oklahoma City on Sunday.

Central Star of the Week: Teppei Ueno - Rochester Grizzlies

Teppei Ueno

Ueno joined the Grizzlies in mid-December and finally got on the board with a pair of points in his team’s lone matchup in Wausau this week — his third NA3HL game this season. The native of Nikko, Japan bagged the first goal of the game, then set up a teammate at the end of the second period to lead his team to a 6-1 win. After a stint with the NAHL’s Austin Bruins earlier this year, Ueno looks to be a key part of the Grizzlies’ championship hopes this season.

Frontier Star of the Week: Bryson Fletcher - Great Falls Americans

Bryson Fletcher

Fletcher has been instrumental in the Americans’ charge towards the top of the Frontier Division lately, picking up 5g-6a—11pts in four consecutive multi-point games this week. The Californian ended 2020 with a pair of goals and an assist in a New Year’s Eve win over Butte, then welcomed 2021 with another three points against Missoula. After chipping in another two assists on Saturday, Fletcher posted another 2g, 1a effort on Monday to close out a remarkable week. Fletcher enters the new week on a six-game point streak (5g-9a—14pts), and boasts 10g-19a—29pts on the year.

Gunnar Schiffmann

Schiffmann and the Tradesmen saw action once this week, with the St. Germain, WI native starring in a 5-3 win over the Power. After being held out of the goal column since his first game on Oct. 2, Schiffmann erupted for two goals and two assists — his first multi-point game since a four-point effort in his aforementioned season debut. After ending his scoring drought in fine fashion, Schiffmann boasts 3g-8a—11pts in 16 games this season.

Fresh off of earning Star of the Week honors for his sterling season debut last week, Asper again lit up the scoreboard with seven points in two games this week. Friday saw him grab a goal and two helpers, marking his second straight multi-point game — while Saturday featured Asper’s first hat-trick of the season (with the game-winner) and another assist.

After a brief break, Bland was back at it in Missoula’s Friday win over Butte, netting another pair and recording another assist, marking his first consecutive multi-point efforts since Nov. 6-7. Bland leads all Missoula skaters with 21g-22a—43pts in 19 games, good for third in league scoring.

Taylor was a stalwart between the pipes for the RoadRunners, backstopping his team to a pair of road wins over Mid Cities. Friday saw the Plymouth, MI native turn aside 23 of 25 pucks for the win, while Saturday marked his second shutout of the season — his first since Oct. 19 — as he stopped 23 of 23 shots to notch his fifth victory on the year.

Stars of the Week Week of December 15, 2020sponsored by Bauer

Central Star of the Week: Peyton Hart - Rochester Grizzlies

Peyton Hart

The Grizzlies’ defense picking up two shutouts over the Power this week certainly earn headlines, but Hart’s offensive prowess guided Rochester’s efforts at the other end of the rink. With 4g-2a—6pts in the back-to-back set, Hart stretched his point-streak to six games. His best game came on Saturday, when he bagged his first hat-trick and multi-goal game of the season en route to a 3g-2a—5pts night in a 5-0 victory. Add in his goal in the prior game on Friday, and Hart boasts goals in four of his last six outings. The Delafield, WI native is averaging more than a point-per-game pace this year, with an impressive 10g-7a—17pts in 15 games on the season.

2nd Star: Ethan Chesney, F, Peoria Mustangs

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Connor Bennett, F, Peoria Mustangs — Matt DeRosa, F, Rochester Grizzlies

 

East Star of the Week: Carson Asper - Northeast Generals

Carson Asper

Asper thrived as part of the Generals’ record-setting top line in 2019, and picked up right where he left off this week as he played his first two NA3HL games of the year. After getting his feet wet with an assist in Saturday’s win, Asper exploded for 2g-4a—6pts on Sunday to pace another Northeast victory. The Generals’ veteran has a steep climb to catch up to last season’s remarkable 103 points, but he’s off to a strong start with 2g-5a—7pts in his first two outings of the year.

2nd Star: James Clarke, F, Northeast Generals

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): None

 

Frontier Star of the Week: Kyler Garsjo - Butte Cobras

Kyler Garsjo

Garsjo was unstoppable this week, scoring six goals in three games to carry the Cobras to their second and third wins of the season. On Friday, the Montana native grabbed the go-ahead and insurance goals in a 4-2 win over Missoula, before striking again in Saturday’s tight loss to Helena. Monday saw Garsjo’s best performance, though, as he posted his first hat-trick of the year — again netting the game-winner — to help Butte past Missoula once again. After a prolific 35g-41a—76pts in 46 games during his rookie season, Garsjo is again spearheading the Cobras’ offensive efforts and is producing at a point-per-game clip with a team-high 11g-9a—20pts in 20 games in 2020-21.

Artem Korolev

After just his third pointless outing of the season in his last game on Nov. 21, Korolev rebounded with a stunning 6g-3a—9pts across a back-to-back set against the Jr. Stars. Friday marked his best showing, as the Russian sniper bagged a whopping five goals and two assists in a comfortable win over Mid Cities. Korolev impressed again in the second matchup, logging another goal and a helper to pace Oklahoma City’s victory. Korolev is off to a sterling start in the NA3HL, leading his team with 16g-22a—38pts in just 17 games — good for third among all NA3HL skaters.

Carlson saw the ice in two games this week, winning one and making a relief appearance in the other with 50 total saves along the way. After a tough start for the Jr. Blues in Friday’s loss to Oregon, Carlson stepped in and was perfect with 18 saves on 18 shots, setting the stage for an impressive win over the Tradesmen on Saturday. The Esko, MN native put aside 32 of 34 pucks that came his way for a .941 save percentage — good for a .961 in that category across the weekend. Carlson is now 3-3-1 on the year, with a 2.77 GAA and .934 save percentage in eight appearances between the pipes.

East Star of the Week: Zack Roncarati - Bay State Bobcats

Zack Roncarati

Much like St. Louis’ Carlson, Roncarati’s stellar week began with some relief action following a slow start for the Bobcats. In Friday’s loss, Roncarati played over 53 minutes despite not starting the contest, and stopped a whopping 52 of 55 shots in that span. On Saturday, he carried over his steady crease presence with a second consecutive 50+ save performance, this time turning away 53 of 56 to backstop a Bobcats win. His 105 total saves on the weekend mark a season high in any back-to-back outings for the second-year netminder, and his 3.18/.946% weekend stat line pushes his season totals to a 3.19 GAA and .933 save percentage with a 2-2-0 record in starts.

2nd Star: Austin Crisp, D, Northeast Generals

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Zakary Justice, F, Bay State Bobcats

 

Frontier Star of the Week: Zach Brydges - Sheridan Hawks

Zach Brydges

One of many Hawks off to a great start this season, Brydges rebounded from his first goose-egg of the year on Nov. 28 with six points in two wins over Yellowstone this week. After nabbing an assist in Friday’s win, Brydges took center stage with his second multi-goal game of the season as he posted four goals and another helper to pace Sheridan’s Saturday victory. Now in his third year of Junior hockey, Brydges has posted 10g-8a—18pts in nine games as a veteran presence on the high-flying Hawks roster.

South Star of the Week: Cole Schneider - El Paso Rhinos

Cole Schneider

Schneider was a constant threat despite an up-and-down weekend for the Rhinos, who split a back-to-back against the RoadRunners. On Friday, Schneider factored in on both El Paso tallies with a goal and an assist in their loss. Building off of that impressive effort, Schneider then bagged two goals — including the GWG — and two assists to pace the Rhinos’ win in the second tilt. After being held off the scoresheet in his first game of the year, Schneider has found the scoresheet in each outing since, recording 6g-5a—11pts on his current six-game streak.

Central Star of the Week: Devin Hays - Oregon Tradesmen

Devin Hays

Hays and the Tradesmen saw limited action this week, but the 2000-born native of Erie, CO made his mark with four points in Saturday’s win over Wausau. After notching assists on three goals during the first two periods, Hays capped off his explosive outing with the final goal of the game midway through the third. After recording just a single goal in his prior four games, Hays’ outburst pushes his season totals to 4g-5a—9pts in 11 games this season.

Frontier Star of the Week: Jacob Cummings - Sheridan Hawks

Jacob Cummings

Cummings’ high-flying start to the season has seen him lead the league in points from day one, and back-to-back five-point outings this week show just how dangerous the Hawks’ playmaker can be. Friday’s victory over Gillette saw Cummings nab a hat-trick — surprisingly his first of the season — and two assists to pace a 9-3 win. His second of the game marked another season first for Cummings, as his strike stood as the game-winner. On Saturday, Cummings notched two more goals and three helpers, marking his sixth consecutive multi-point outing. With 10 more points to his name, Cummings now boasts a league-high 14g-30a—44pts in just 11 games.

South Star of the Week: Benjamin Mondou - Texas Brahmas

Benjamin Mondou

Opening the week’s action, Mondou and the Brahmas hosted the Jr. Stars on Monday. The 2002-born Montreal native had something of a breakout game, coming off of a single goal in his first five outings of the year to post a stout 2g-1a—3pts line in Texas’ 5-1 win over Mid Cities. Mondou grabbed the opening goal of the game just under five minutes after the puck was dropped, then set up the insurance tally four minutes later. Capping off his first multi-point game of the year, Mondou lit the lamp again midway through the second period, comfortably sealing the win. He now has 3g-1a—4pts in six games this year.

Vinny Servizzi

Playing just his second and third games in a Jr. Blues uniform this week, Servizzi burst onto the scene with a 2g-2a—4pts effort in two road wins over Milwaukee. After being held pointless in his NA3HL debut on Oct. 31, the St. Louis native bagged a goal and two helpers in Friday’s win, then posted the game-winner in the second victory on Saturday. Servizzi also went an impressive +4 this week despite the Power netting seven goals across the weekend set.

East Star of the Week: Brandon Avezov - New Jersey Titans

Brandon Avezov

The Titans talisman was at his best during New Jersey’s OT win over Long Beach this week. The Wednesday matinee saw Avezov carry over his positive momentum from a four-point showing on the 15th, as he scored once and assisted another during regulation time, then buried a rebound in OT to give his team the win over the Sharks. The prolific Avezov now leads his team with 13g-11a—24pts in just 11 games, a mark that ranks ninth among all NA3HL skaters.

2nd Star: Jonah Sabatini, F, New Jersey Titans

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): None

 

Frontier Star of the Week: Jack Harris - Yellowstone Quake

Jack Harris

Harris and the Quake hosted Butte for a back-to-back set this week, in which Harris was as dangerous as ever. Entering the week on a three-game point streak and with goals in two straight, Harris torched the Cobras for 2g-4a—6pts in two close games. Down 3-0 in the second period of Saturday’s game, Harris scored the tying goal in the third period and then set up the game-winner with eight minutes to play. Sunday was almost deja vu for the Cody, WY native, as Harris again netted a tying goal in the third period and posted a whopping three assists — once again setting up the game-winner in this tilt as well. Harris’ explosive week pushes him into a tie for 6th in the NA3HL with 15g-11a—26pts in 14 games.

South Star of the Week: John Mulvihill - El Paso Rhinos

John Mulvihill

It was rivalry week for Mulvihill and the Rhinos this week, as El Paso traveled to Oklahoma City and earned a two-game split against the tough Blazers. After being held off the scoresheet in Friday’s OT loss, Mulvihill was key to El Paso’s bounce-back win on Saturday with his second two-point outing in three games. Down by one early in the second, Mulvihill netted the tying tally, then capped off a four-goal Rhinos outburst with an assist at the end of the frame. Averaging a point-per-game, Mulvihill’s 2g-3a—5pts in five games rank tied for fourth on El Paso’s roster.

2nd Star: None

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): None

 

West Star of the Week: Caleb Huffman - North Iowa Bulls

Caleb Huffman

The Bulls cruised to a pair of wins over the visiting Steel this week, and Huffman’s offensive production from the blue line was a key reason for his team’s success. With a goal and an assist on Friday, followed by a three-assist outing on Saturday, Huffman shared the scoring lead for all Bulls skaters on the weekend, and his five points pushed him above a point-per-game pace on the season. With 2g-7a—9pts in six games, Huffman ranks tied for 16th among NA3HL defensemen, and second among Bulls blueliners.

Erstad found another gear this week, doubling his season point totals with back to back 1g, 1a efforts against Wausau. Entering the weekend set with just one goal in his prior four outings, Erstad took the reins and helped the Power to a weekend split against their division rival with his first consecutive multi-point games of the season, and establishing his first point streak of the year as well. He boasts 5g-3a—8pts in 10 games on the year.

East Star of the Week: Deacon More - Northeast Generals

Deacon More

Already an established offensive force from the Generals blue line, More was key to Northeast’s win over Bay State with a goal and two helpers on Tuesday. More’s strike with just under a minute remaining in the second period served as the eventual game-winner, and the Tampa, FL native set up two teammates for insurance markers in the third period. Through nine games, More leads all Northeast skaters with 5g-10—15pts, a mark that also ranks third among all NA3HL defensemen.

2nd Star: Brandon Avezov, F, New Jersey Titans

Justin Schwartzmiller

Schwartzmiller stood out from a pack of impressive Frontier Division performances with his 6g-2a—8pts weekend against Bozeman. After being held off the scoresheet in two games to open the season, the NA3HL veteran has exploded with multiple points — and goals — in all but one game since then. On Saturday, Schwartzmiller paced a rampant Sheridan offense with four goals, including the game-winner. He was at his best again in another romp on Sunday, logging another two goals and two assists with a second game-winner in his haul. Schwartzmiller continues to ride a seven-game point streak which has accounted for all of his production this season — 15g-5a—20pts in nine games.

Noah Henslee

The Blazers headed to College Station this week, where Henslee was clearly in his element during a three-game set against the RoadRunners. The OKC native opened the weekend with a stellar three-goal, two-assist showing with a game-winner on Friday — marking his first multi-goal game and hat-trick of the year — before following up with another goal and a helper in Saturday’s tighter win. On Sunday, he was back to his high-flying ways with his second hat-trick in three games, nabbing another game-winner in this tilt too.

Anders netted the first goal of the game in the opening stanza, set up a teammate to score in the second and capped off an impressive night with a go-ahead tally in the third.

Walter rose to the occasion in two starts against Milwaukee this week, backstopping the Mustangs to a pair of wins with 64 saves in that span.

With a season-best .969% in that second win, Walter’s stat totals jumped up to a .913 save percentage and a 2.45 GAA as the veteran netminder moved to 3-1-0 on the year.

Thomas and the Warhawks were busy this week with three games on the slate, but the Chaska, MN native made an impact in all three outings to help his team to a 2-1-0 showing. With an assist in Friday’s loss to North Iowa, Thomas doubled his efforts with two goals to pace Willmar’s OT win over New Ulm. In Sunday’s rematch against the Steel, Thomas was again a featured player, notching another goal and two assists as the Warhawks again topped New Ulm. Thomas has now found the scoresheet in five straight games, posting 4g-4a—8pts on that streak, and moving to 4g-7a—11pts in 10 games on the season.

Central Star of the Week: Joey Solimando - St. Louis Jr. Blues

Joey Solimando

Solimando and the Jr. Blues split with the Tradesmen this week, but the St. Peters, MO native was on fire with three goals and an assist across the two tilts. Solimando posted a goal and a helper in Friday’s win, then accounted for both of St. Louis’ goals in a 3-2 OT loss on Saturday. After a 1g-1a—2pts start through five games, Solimando has hit his stride and is producing at just shy of a point-per-game pace. 

2nd Star: Parker Severson, F, Oregon Tradesmen

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Jacob Best, F, Oregon Tradesmen — Peyton Hart, F, Rochester Grizzlies — Jeb Lindy, F, St. Louis Jr. Blues — Luke McKinch, D, Rochester Grizzlies

 

East Star of the Week: Brandon Avezov - New Jersey Titans

Brandon Avezov

Third verse, same as the first (and second!) as New Jersey’s Brandon Avezov continues to dominate on a weekly basis to win his third straight Star of the Week award in the East. This week’s three outings featured five goals and one assist from the New York-native, who has now lit the lamp in each one of his seven games played this season, and recorded his first hat-trick of the young campaign in Friday’s win over Northeast. His mark of 10g-6a—16pts leads New Jersey thus far, and he ranks sixth in points and fourth in goals among all NA3HL skaters.

2nd Star: Austin Crisp, D, Northeast Generals

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Brett Bell, F, New Jersey Titans — Ben Pizzimenti, F, Northeast Generals

 

Frontier Star of the Week: Pablo Frank - Missoula Junior Bruins

Pablo Frank

Entering this week with goals in back-to-back games, Frank was stellar once more against Helena and Butte to log three goals and two assists in a pair of wins. Stretching his goal-scoring streak to four games, the Spokane Valley, WA native scored twice on Thursday, then added another marker to pair with two helpers on Friday. Frank boasts six goals on his current goal streak, and 10 points on his current five-game point streak. His 6g-5a—11pts rank second on the Missoula roster.

South Star of the Week: Tyler Blanchard - Texas Brahmas

Tyler Blanchard

After a somewhat streaky start to the season, Blanchard hit his stride this week with eight points in a pair of wins over the RoadRunners. On Friday, he posted his first multi-goal game of the year, with a two-goal, four-assist outing at home. He followed up that showing on Saturday with another goal and an assist to push his season totals to 4g-10a—14pts in seven games. 

2nd Star: Greg Smith, G, Atlanta Capitals

West Star of the Week: Sota Isogai - North Iowa Bulls

Sota Isogai

Isogai blanked in two games leading up to this week’s action, but came alive in two games against Willmar with three goals and an assist in that span. His 2g,1a effort on Thursday marked his second multi-goal game of the season, while Friday’s additional strike marked the first time he tallied in consecutive games this season. The Japanese forward was nearly a point-per-game player for the Bulls last season, and sits just shy of that rate once more with 6g-1a—7pts in eight games this year. 

2nd Star: Cole Jacobs, F, Alexandria Blizzard

Central Star of the Week: Teddy Marion - Milwaukee Power

Teddy Marion

Marion and the Power cruised to a pair of wins over Wausau this weekend, thanks in large part to the Franklin, WI native’s seven points in those outings. After being held to three points in his first four games of the year, Marion exploded against the RiverWolves on Friday and Saturday, scoring twice and adding two assists in the first game, then notching three more helpers in round two. His 3g-7a—10pts now lead all Power skaters on the year.

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): None

 

East Star of the Week: Brandon Avezov - New Jersey Titans

Brandon Avezov

Fresh off of being named last week’s Star of the Week in the East, Avezov kept his hot streak rolling with four points in two games last week. Avezov got things started by scoring his team’s only goal in a Wednesday matinee matchup against Long Beach, then potted a pair on Friday to go with another assist, marking his third three-point outing in four games this season. With goals in each contest, Avezov has also lit the lamp in each game this season, and his 5g-5a—10pts in four games are tops among all Titans skaters. 

2nd Star: Ryan Wojciechowski, D, Danbury Jr. Hat Tricks

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Philippe Doucette, F, New Jersey Titans — Trey Hirschfield, G, Danbury Jr. Hat Tricks

 

Frontier Star of the Week: Jack Harris - Yellowstone Quake

Jack Harris

In the midst of a dynamite start to the season, Harris posted his second consecutive three-point outing in Yellowstone’s only game this week, featuring on each Quake tally in a 6-3 loss to Bozeman. With two goals and one assist in Friday’s tilt, the Cody, WY native now leads all Yellowstone skaters with 8g-5a—13pts in just six games, and boasts points in every game played this season. 

2nd Star: Jake Hayes, F, Great Falls Americans

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Trever Mellen, G, Great Falls Americans

 

South Star of the Week: Jacob Ahl - Oklahoma City Blazers

Jacob Ahl

The Blazers went on the road to take on the most recent Fraser Cup champions over the weekend and came away with a two-win sweep over the Brahmas, buoyed by a pair of outstanding performances by Ahl between the pipes. Facing 37 shots from the dangerous Brahmas on Saturday, Ahl stopped 34 for a .919 save percentage in the contest. The Swedish backstop was unflappable on Sunday as well, stopping 34 of 35 shots to move to a perfect 4-0-0 record on the season. Ahl now boasts a stunning .964 save percentage and 1.00 GAA with two shutouts across his four starts this year. 

2nd Star: Nicholas Cyprian, F, Atlanta Capitals

West Star of the Week: Brayden Uttech - North Iowa Bulls

Brayden Uttech

After a streaky start to his NA3HL career with five points in five games, but three pointless outings in that span, Uttech found consistency this week with points back-to-back games, extending his points streak to three games. With two goals and an assist on Friday and an assist on Saturday, Uttech has now logged 3g-3a—6pts on his current streak, and leads all North Iowa skaters with 4g-5a—9pts in 7 games this season.

Central Star of the Week: Sam VanderHoeven - Oregon Tradesmen

Sam VanderHoeven

VanderHoeven helped lead the Tradesmen to a pair of wins over Peoria this week, logging a total of six points in that span. Friday’s 6-2 blowout was his shining moment, as the Beaver Dam, WI native bagged two goals and three assists, featuring on all but one Oregon goal. VanderHoeven played a key role on Saturday as well, notching the second goal in Oregon’s three-goal comeback en route to a 4-3 OT victory. VanderHoeven now boasts 4g-4a—8pts in five games, good for a share of second in team scoring. 

2nd Star: Reid Lune, F, Peoria Mustangs

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Connor Bennett, F, Peoria Mustangs — Jacob Best, F, Oregon Tradesmen — Owen Carlson, G, St. Louis Jr. Blues — Jackson Henningsgard, F, St. Louis Jr. Blues

 

East Star of the Week: Brandon Avezov - New Jersey Titans

Brandon Avezov

Avezov and the Titans opened up the season on a hot streak, as the Bellmore, NY native recorded six points to lead his team to a pair of wins over Danbury. After scoring his first goal of the season and recording two assists on Thursday, Avezov followed up with an identical stat line on Friday, again scoring and setting up two teammates for goals. His six points lead all Titans skaters after their first two NA3HL contests. 

2nd Star: Troy Harwell, F, Bay State Bobcats

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Ethan Kavanaugh, G, New Jersey Titans — Nathan Moffitt, G, Bay State Bobcats

 

Frontier Star of the Week: Trever Mellen - Great Falls Americans

Trever Mellen

Mellen was on his game from the first drop of the puck this week, recording 66 saves on 70 shots for a .943 save percentage and, most importantly, two wins to keep his perfect 6-0-0 start to the season intact. Mellen shone brightest on Friday night with his first shutout of the season — a 35-save effort against Gillette — and followed up with another steady showing between the pipes as he turned aside 31 pucks in another win over the Wild. In addition to his unblemished win/loss record, Mellen now boasts a 1.92 GAA and .937 save percentage on the year, both of which lead all NA3HL goaltenders with at least four starts. 

2nd Star: Declan Young, F, Gillette Wild

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Nathan Fanning, D, Gillette Wild — Jack Harris, F, Yellowstone Quake — Cole Komarek, F, Great Falls Americans — Cade Rosansky, F, Yellowstone Quake

 

South Star of the Week: Greg Smith - Atlanta Capitals

Greg Smith

It’s not often a single goaltender takes the ice for each of a team’s three games in a weekend tripleheader, but Smith did just that in nearly perfect fashion. His 15-save shutout on Friday and 13-save shutout on Saturday were eyebrow-raising performances in their own right, but Smith put it all together once more on Sunday to stop 22 of 23 shots for another win and a rare three-game sweep. In total, Smith turned aside 50 of 51 shots and turned in a sterling 0.33 GAA and .980 save percentage on the weekend. 

2nd Star: Jack Cooper, F, Texas Brahmas

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Jacob Kalandyk, F, Texas Brahmas — Kyle Karoleski, G, Louisiana Drillers — Brendan Krawczyk, F, Louisiana Drillers — Vyacheslav Nilov, F, Atlanta Capitals 

 

West Star of the Week: Garrett Freeman - North Iowa Bulls

Garrett Freeman

Freeman got on the board for the first time this season last week, and built on that success this week with four points in the Bulls’ two-game sweep over the Steel. Freeman’s playmaking ability was on full display Friday night as he recorded two assists, while Saturday saw more balance from his offense. The Sartell, MN native scored the game-winning goal to go along with another helper to pace another North Iowa win. With two points in each of his last three games, Freeman has now logged 2g-4a—6pts in his first five games of the season after being held off the scoresheet in the first two outings. 

2nd Star: Carson Simon, F, Granite City Lumberjacks

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Lucas Bellig, D, North Iowa Bulls — Joey Gimberlin, F, New Ulm Steel — Jonah Jangula, F, Granite City Lumberjacks — Michael Sweetland, F, Willmar Warhawks

Central Star of the Week: Joseph LaForge - Wausau RiverWolves

Joseph LaForge

After coughing up eight goals against the Tradesmen on October 2, Wausau goaltender Joseph LaForge rebounded with a stellar start on Friday night, turning in a stunning 55-save shutout against Oregon. Backstopping the RiverWolves’ 2-0 win, LaForge faced 17, 18 and 20 shots in each respective period of Friday’s contest, and slammed the door on four Oregon power-play opportunities. The veteran netminder has now faced down 91 of 99 shots on the season. 

2nd Star: Trey Bess, F, Milwaukee Power

East Star of the Week: Sam Brickley - Long Beach Sharks

Sam Brickley

Brickley and the Sharks went a middling 1-1-1 in a three-game set against Bay State this week, but the defenseman was lights-out from the blue line in each game, logging 2g-3a—5pts across the trio of tilts. Brickley, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound native of Park City, UT, scored his first goal of the season on Friday before turning up his playmaking skills with two assists in a tough loss Saturday night. In Sunday’s victory, though, Brickley was a driving force, scoring once and setting up a teammate to score for his second straight multi-point outing. Brickley’s five points lead all Sharks skaters through three games. 

2nd Star: Brandon Cope, F, Danbury Jr. Hat Tricks

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Zan Mojzer, F, Long Beach Sharks — Nicholas Rogers, F, Danbury Jr. Hat Tricks 

 

Frontier Star of the Week: Dylan Rumpke - Yellowstone Quake

Dylan Rumpke

Following a pair of goose-eggs in his first two games of the season, Rumpke came alive with six points across Yellowstone’s two games this week. Friday saw his playmaking skills on display, as the Columbus, OH native dished out three helpers in a 7-5 win. Sunday saw a more direct performance from Rumpke, who notched two goals and another assist despite a tough loss. After posting 75 points as one of the Quake’s top players last season, Rumpke is off to a steady start in the new campaign with six points in four games. 

2nd Star: Jacob Cummings, F, Sheridan Hawks

South Star of the Week: Michael Onda - Oklahoma City Blazers

Michael Onda

The Blazers got their NA3HL days start off quite well with a a 2-1-0 weekend against the Louisiana Drillers, with Onda leading the way. The 5-foot-8, 160-pound forward was on his game early, logging 3g-6a—9pts to start the season. Friday’s OT thriller saw Onda net a goal and two assists, before setting up another goal in Saturday’s defeat. Onda was in top form on Sunday, though, where he scored twice —including the game-winning goal — and recorded three helpers as the Blazers took the weekend series with a 6-1 win. Onda’s nine points lead all Blazers skaters after the first weekend set of the season. 

2nd Star: Josh Hrip, F, Louisiana Drillers

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Derek Boutin, F, Texas RoadRunners — Artem Korolev, F, Oklahoma City Blazers — Aidan Rudolf, G, Texas RoadRunners — Landen Sill, F, Louisiana Drillers 

 

West Star of the Week: Joey Gimberlin - New Ulm Steel

Joey Gimberlin

Despite his team suffering a loss in its only game of the weekend, Gimberlin shone brightly with a hand in each Steel goal from the weekend. The 5-foot-11, 160-pound native of St. Paul, MN, rebounded from a pointless first outing of the season with 2g-1a—3pts on Friday night, including a shorthanded tally early in the third period to give his team a two-goal advantage at the time. And though he played in one less game than many of his teammates, Gimberlin and his three points in two games still sit atop New Ulm’s scoring ranks. 

2nd Star: Jeremiah Konkel, F, Willmar Warhawks

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Tyler Corbid, F, Willmar Warhawks — Gijs DeSchepper, D, North Iowa Bulls — Bailey Huber, G, Granite City Lumberjacks — Cal Nauss, D, North Iowa Bulls — Carson Simon, F, Granite City Lumberjacks

Central Star of the Week: Ethan McCormack - Oregon Tradesmen

Ethan McCormack

McCormack helped the Tradesmen open their inaugural NA3HL in the best way possible, tallying three goals and an assist across a pair of comfortable wins over divisional opponents. Friday’s opener saw him net two goals — including the game-winner — and one assist, and he followed up that impressive debut with another goal on Saturday. An NA3HL veteran, McCormack previously played for the St. Louis Jr. Blues and the Coulee Region Chill, and appears poised as an important piece for the Tradesmen moving forward. 

2nd Star: Hunter Wilmes, F, Rochester Grizzlies

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Derrick Brown, F, St. Louis Jr. Blues — Brent Edmondson, F, Oregon Tradesmen — Jeb Lindy, G, St. Louis Jr. Blues — Zach Wiese, G, Rochester Grizzlies

 

East Star of the Week: Nick Ramm - Northeast Generals

Nick Ramm

Ramm helped last season’s highest-scoring team pick up right where they left off, with a whopping four goals in his NA3HL debut to guide the Generals past the Jr. Hat Tricks on Saturday. Ramm’s brother Tyler assisted on three of those goals. After a successful run with the Generals’ NAPHL youth teams, including a trip to the 2019 NAPHL All-Star Game, Nick Ramm has kicked off his Junior career with a bang and will look to keep it going against Danbury once more on Sunday. 

2nd Star: Espen Reager, G, Northeast Generals

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): None

 

Frontier Star of the Week: Jacob Cummings - Sheridan Hawks

Jacob Cummings

Entering his second NA3HL stint, Cummings started off on the right foot with six points across a pair of road games in Bozeman. The Anchorage, AK native was dishing out goals to his teammates on Friday, logging five assists in a 7-0 victory. The playmaker turned goal-scorer in Saturday’s defeat, tying the game at one early in the second period. After six games with the Hawks last season, Cummings looks to be cementing his place in Sheridan early in the season. 

2nd Star: Liam Bland, F, Missoula Jr. Bruins

Honorable Mention (alphabetical): Jack Harris, F, Yellowstone Quake — Jake Hayes, F, Great Falls Americans — Alex Jackson, F, Great Falls Americans — Brandon Kididis, F, Yellowstone Quake — Owen Miley, D, Missoula Jr. Bruins — Logan Syrup, F, Sheridan Hawks

West Star of the Week: John Blake - Granite City Lumberjacks

John Blake

Leading from the blue line, John Blake finished tied atop the Lumberjacks’ scoring leaders with four points in Granite City’s lone contest last weekend. Blake struck twice in a six-minute span in the first period, and his initial marker stood as the game-winner. After making such a sizable early impact, the rookie blueliner’s next test comes in a pair of back-to-back home tilts against rival North Iowa this weekend. 

2nd Star: Hayden Fox, F, North Iowa Bulls
