East Division Star of the Week: Kevin Perry, forward, Northeast Generals
The expansion Northeast Generals picked up their first win last weekend as they defeated the Maine Wild 7-4. 18-year-old forward Kevin Perry (6’0/195) had a breakout game with two goals and an assist. The native of Hull, MA has four points in three games so far this season. “It was great watching Kevin this past week. He was everywhere. In addition to his points he had 16 hits, 8 blocked shots and was a plus 3. That is why he is a Captain as he sets the tone in the locker room and on the ice. He plays all out on every shift and he was rewarded on Sunday,” said Northeast head coach Bryan Erikson.
