West Division Star of the Week: Freddie Schaljo, forward, Jersey Shore Wildcats
The Jersey Shore Wildcats stayed perfect on the season with three wins last week, which included a win over New York and two over Syracuse. Forward Freddie Schaljo, 18, had a good week with six points to lead the Wildcats. On Friday, the native of St. Louis, MO had two assists in a 6-4 win against the New York Aviators. On Saturday, Schaljo (5’11/190) had an assist in a 5-0 win and on Sunday, he had a goal and two assists in a 4-2 win to complete a sweep of Syracuse. “Freddie is one of our young players that keeps improving everyday just like others on the team as well. He is coming from a background where he is used to some improvised hockey, but he has the heart at the right place and we can certainly work with that. This season with the resources and structure in place for his development in combination with the honest work ethic on and off the ice he brings on the table. I am glad to see it is starting to pay off for him and his contribution to the team as well. He came a long way and still has a few things to keep improving on a consistent basis but he is certainly heading out the right direction for his future so far,” said Wildcats head coach Eric Brule.
