Defense

 

Nolan Tabraham, Carolina Junior Hurricanes 

Tabraham (‘02/Fayetteville, N.C.) played a pair of games against the Richmond Generals, scoring a goal and picking up four points. He also blocked a shot and finished the weekend with a +3 rating.

Florida Division

Forward 

 

Jack Fleer, Tampa Bay Juniors

Defense 

 

Vincent Cartier, Florida Eels 

Cartier (‘04/St-Germain-de-Graham, Que.) earned recognition not so much based on points or statistics, but for the weight he carried, helping a depleted defense corps and collecting an assist. He has stepped up when called on, collecting at least a point in five of the team’s last six games.

 

Goaltender 

 

Connor Wilkerson, Charleston Colonials 

While many are finishing off busy seasons, Wilkerson (‘04/Richmond, Va.) hit a different milestone, playing in his second junior contest and picking up his first junior win in a big way, posting a 31-save shutout against the Florida Jr. Blades Monday.
