Congratulations to the first class of Players of the Week selections for the 2018-19 season.
Forward: Zachary Aben, Palmyra Black Knights.
The '03 from Shavertown, Pa., has helped the new Palmyra Black Knights make an immediate splash in the USPHL. He picked up two goals against a powerhouse New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs program.
Defense: Austin Rice, Skipjacks Hockey Club.
Born on Christmas Day 2002, the Fort Myers, Fla., resident torched the 16U Futures Division last year, and appears ready to do the same at the 16U level, scoring two goals and five points in three games.
Goal: Lenny Perno, Rochester Jr. Monarchs.
A Rochester native born in 2002, Perno picked up back-to-back shutouts against the Hartford Jr. Wolfpack and the New Jersey Rockets (coached by Oktay Armagan).
Methodology: Players of the Week are nominated by their 16U coaches and selected by USPHL Manager of Media and Communications Joshua Boyd.
