Congratulations to our newest group of National Collegiate Development Conference Players Of The Week, all of whom shined brightly at the 2018 Jersey Hitmen Classic!
Forward: Robby Griffin, Junior Bruins.
The second-year NCDC forward and Northeastern University recruit Griffin ('01/Burlington, Mass.) posted five assists over the course of the Junior Bruins' two games at the Hitmen Classic, helping to keep the Junior Bruins in a tie for first place overall.
Defense: Tanner Palocsik, New Jersey Hitmen.
Another second-year NCDC veteran, Palocsik ('99/Aliquippa, Pa.) scored a power play goal against the South Shore Kings in the Hitmen's first game, and scored the game-winning goal in the Hitmen's 2-1 victory over Syracuse on Saturday. Palocsik, an assistant captain for the Hitmen, is committed to Dartmouth College for 2019-20.
Goal: Matt Pasquale, New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs.
A brand new signing by the Monarchs, the team wasted no time in putting him in the crease for all three of their Hitmen Classic games. The '00-born goalie from North Reading, Mass., was stellar in each one.
He gave up just three goals all weekend, and never more than two in a single game for the Monarchs, whom he helped to a 2-1 weekend. His goals against average stands at 1.00, his save percentage is at .961 and he already has a shutout over the Boston Bandits to his credit.
