USPHL Elite Players Of The Week: North Region

By USPHL Staff, 11/20/20, 10:45AM EST


Week of Nov. 20, 2020*

Forward: Darin Michaels, Rockets Hockey Club

This ‘03 could be a rising star in the Rockets organization, as he has posted a 5-11-16 line in his 10 games played for 2020-21. This includes most recently a goal and four assists in a pair of games against the Jersey Shore Whalers. 


Defense: Dominick Balboni, Springfield Pics

The third-year Pic Balboni (‘03/West Springfield, Mass.) was recently switched to defense, and he’s taken to the position like fish to water, while also continuing to help the Pics offensively. He posted a pair of goals and one assist in his last three games, as the Pics earned their first win and tacked on another point from a shootout loss. Balboni scored the picturesque OT game-winner against the Bridgewater Jr. Bandits. 


Goaltender: Jacob Romney, Boston Junior Bruins 

Already a regular in the player recognition honors, Romney (‘01/Longwood, Fla.) stopped 79 of 82 shots in his last three games, going 2-0-0-1 over the last week. Don’t be surprised to see Romney potentially see Premier minutes this year, as well.  


* = Limited game action for this region between Nov. 13-19.
