50 Players, 50 Days: Isaiah Hedberg
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!
Isaiah Hedberg, Forward, Milwaukee Power
Milwaukee Power forward Isaiah Hedberg, 20, took on and thrived in a playmaking role during his first and only NA3HL season, ranking third on his team in assists and fourth in points during the 2019-20 campaign.
A 5-foot-9, 155-pound native of Hugo, MN, Hedberg's pass-first mentality led him to 20 assists in 2019-20 -- just six shy of the team lead. Add his four goals into the mix and Hedberg's 24 points in 47 games tied him for fourth in team scoring, and put him in elite company as one of six Power skaters to record more than 20 points this season.
