50 Players, 50 Days: Marco Escobar

March 30, 2020

Marco Escobar had five points in three games at the 2020 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament.

During the current and unforeseen cancelation of the 2019-20 season, the players in the NA3HL saw their seasons cut prematurely short. In some cases, players saw their junior hockey careers come to an end as well. However, the NA3HL got together a decided to highlight some of those players, who were born in 1999 and were in their final season of playing junior hockey.

As a result, we present a new series entitled: 50 players, 50 days

50 players in 50 days will select 50 players from each of the 34 NAHL teams this past season that were born in 1999, who are currently uncommitted, and deserve some recognition during their time spent playing and developing in the NA3HL. Over the course of the next 50 days, we will take time out to look at their accomplishments, review their season, and provide some background on their NA3HL careers. Players will be initially highlighted in alphabetical order by team. Enjoy!
 
Marco Escobar, forward, Coulee Region Chill
 
With a year of NA3HL experience to his name already, Marco Escobar, a 20-year-old native of Plainfield, Illinois, took on a new challenge in his first full season with the Coulee Region Chill in 2019-20 after joining them for 11 games the year prior. 
 
After putting up 14 goals and 19 assists in 41 games with both North Iowa and Coulee Region in 2018-19, Escobar ramped up his offensive production with 25 goals and 37 assists for 62 points with the Chill this year, good for second on the team. With points in 14 of his first 16 games this season, Escobar established himself as a key contributor on a Chill team looking to replicate a strong 2018-19 campaign.
