Week of Oct. 14, 2021

Pearson posted a couple goals and assists over the weekend, as he keeps paying dividends for the defending Elite National Champions. The rookie ‘03 from the Rochester area of New York now has 12 points in 10 games. 


Goaltender: Elijah Grant, Potomac Patriots

Grant (‘04/Sarnia, Ont.) earned his first USPHL win by stopping 36 of 39 shots to give Potomac the win in Game 2 of a two-game set vs. the Carolina Jr. Hurricanes. The Patriots also picked up a point from an overtime loss on Saturday for a three-point weekend. 


Florida Division

A local ‘03-born product from Land O’ Lakes, Fla., Cullen scored three goals over the course of a two-game weekend sweep against the Atlanta MadHatters. He now has six goals on the season in 11 games.

The newcomer and ‘04 played strong defense all weekend despite the outcome of two losses to Tampa. He also picked up a goal in the process and now has five points in 10 games for Atlana. 


Goaltender: Evan Spinella, Tampa Bay Juniors

Spinella (‘03/Farmingville, N.Y.) picked up back-to-back wins over the weekend - in two different leagues, no less.

There, he stopped 25 of 29 for his first well-deserved Premier start and victory.
