Forward: Zach Frisk, P.A.L. Jr. Islanders
Frisk (‘00/Long Valley, N.J.) posted two goals and two assists in a pair of games against the Philadelphia and Rockets Hockey Clubs. After going 2-1-3 against Philly in a win, he also added an assist in a close 3-2 loss against the Rockets, who are still undefeated in regulation.
Frisk, who joined the Jr. Islanders in late October, has scored in each of his last six games (out of seven played overall), posting all of his 4-4-8 totals in that time.
Defense: Andrew Gilbert, Jersey Hitmen
The Hitmen have averaged just 27 shots against per game (against 40 shots for in a game) thanks to a massive defensive effort across the board. The U.S. Military Academy recruit Gilbert (‘00/Fairfield, Conn.) put the Hitmen’s defensive acumen on full display in their 6-0 shutout of Philadelphia Hockey Club.
Gilbert led the Hitmen in time on ice (20:20) and blocked shots (4), and tied Patrick Keegan for takeaways (7). He led Hitmen blueliners in puck battles won (7) and helped Hitmen goalie Chase Clark see just 23 shots in 60 minutes.
Goaltender: Jake Perrin, Islanders Hockey Club
The fourth-year Islander Perrin (‘00/Chelmsford, Mass.) had a huge past week, starting on Veterans Day, Nov. 11, with a 29-save win (on 31 shots) over the South Shore Kings. He came right back three days later to stop 38 of 39 shots by a Boston Junior Bruins team that has continually added more Division 1 talent over the last month.
All told, in going 2-0, Perrin stopped 67 of 70 shots for a .957 save percentage in two contests.
