By USPHL Staff, 01/13/22, 8:15PM EST


Week of Jan. 13, 2022

Forward: Cooper Hunt, Tampa Bay Juniors
Hunt (‘03/The Colony, Texas) put up a big three-goal, five-assist weekend at the USPHL Winter Showcase, with two of his three goals being game-winners. The Juniors went 4-0 and have already clinched a playoff spot on the back of this weekend, and Hunt - a second-year Elite forward - has already passed his 30-point total of 2020-21 with 39 points this year. 

Defense: Philip Wsol, Tampa Bay Juniors
Wsol (‘05/Milton, Ont.) has been so strong this year with the Elite team over his 24 games, he has earned three call-ups to the USPHL Premier squad for games. With the Elite team that went 4-0 at the USPHL Winter Showcase, he posted two goals and three assists for five points. 

Goaltender: Matthew Schoer, Florida Eels
Schoer (‘01/Long Valley, N.J.) went 2-0 at the USPHL Winter Showcase, with both wins being shutouts. He posted 35 saves against the Northern Cyclones in a big marquee matchup, and then stopped all 18 he faced from the Springfield Pics. The Eels, like the Juniors, also went 4-0 at the USPHL Winter Showcase and also clinched their playoff spot already. 

Southeast Division
Forward: David Hoftiezer, Charlotte Rush

Second-year Rush and defending Elite National Champion Hoftiezer (‘02/Medford, N.J.) has put up 40 points in 31 games for Charlotte this year, and this includes a heavy output of 4-4-8 already for the very young 2022. 

Defense: Eagan Cunningham, Charlotte Rush
Cunningham (‘04/Key West, Fla.) has put up big numbers as well from the back line for a Rush team that has started this year 3-0-1. He has 2-6-8 in his four 2022 games since coming back from the holiday break, and continues that streak into his next game. Cunningham has 34 points in 28 games splitting the year between defense and forward. 

Goaltender: Devin DeCarlo, Hampton Roads Whalers
DeCarlo (‘03/Rockville, Md.) went on a two-game tear in sweeping the Potomac Patriots. He stopped all 34 shots he faced in their Sunday game for his first junior shutout. He also stopped 17 of 20 for a win on Saturday.
