Forward Of the Month: Jason Lastra, Rockets Hockey Club 

This ‘00 from Rutheford, N.J., only took six games to do what he did over the course of 16 in 2018-19, offensively-speaking. This included four points in his final two games at the USPHL South Showcase in Chesapeake, Va. 

His fourth goal, scored on Sept. 30, helped the Rockets defeat the Tampa Bay Juniors for a win to close out the showcase. 

 

Honorable Mention

Ryan Andrews, Jersey Hitmen

Dylan Hernandez-Ramirez, Boston Bandits

 

Defenseman Of The Month: Brandon Troyer, Boston Bandits

Troyer (‘01/Chesterfield, Mich.) jumped right into the junior hockey fray, scoring two goals - one a game-winner - and two assists in his first four games. In addition to that accomplishment, he helped the Bandits to a 2-0-1-1 start, and the team had given up just over 2 goals per game on average in September. 

 

Honorable Mention

Hunter Meyer, Northern Cyclones

Trace Cowart, Jersey Hitmen

 

Goaltender Of The Month: Dane Beltramini, Jersey Hitmen

The Hitmen have picked up some nice early victories, and also had their struggles in a few games at the USPHL South Showcase. Through all of these ups and downs, Beltramini (‘03/Ramsey, N.J.) has been a guiding light. Entering October, he stood with a 1.90 goals against average and a .944 save percentage, making 68 saves on 72 shots. 

 

Honorable Mention

Joshua Chausse, Boston Bandits

Joe Hughes, Rockets Hockey Club
