Beversdorf bagged a pair of goals, including a power-play marker, in Milwaukee’s inaugural NA3HL contest against Peoria, a 4-3 victory for the Power. The Hartland, Wisconsin, native then posted a goal and a helper in the second half of Milwaukee’s back-to-back against Peoria, which the Power won 6-3 to stay perfect in the young campaign. Beversdorf currently paces the Power with 3g-1a-4pts in two games.
