Congratulations to our Players Of The Week representing the USPHL Elite’s Northern Divisions (North and Mid-Atlantic) between Oct. 16-21.
Forward: Nick Jinks, New Jersey Rockets.
Jinks, an ‘01 from Annandale, N.J., had four goals and six assists for 10 points in three games on the weekend against the New York Aviators (two games) and Team Beijing. She had two assists in the first game vs. New York on Friday, posted a goal and four assists vs. Team Beijing on Saturday and a hat trick vs. the Aviators on Sunday. The second-year Elite Rocket now has nine goals and 17 points through 14 games, nearly doubling his entire 2017-18 output of nine points in 38 games.
Defense: Dylan Hernandez-Ramirez, Islanders Hockey Club.
Hernandez-Ramirez (‘00/Costa Mesa, Calif.) picked up four points in one game against the Springfield Jr. Pics to match his output from his prior six games this year. He had one goal and three assists against the Pics on Saturday.
Goal: Grainger Rickenbaker, Boston Bandits.
Rickenbacker (‘99/Mt. Pleasant, S.C.) picked up a 2-0 shutout win against a tough Islanders Hockey Club team on Oct. 17. Including that game, he started the season at 5-0-1. His play has been a big reason for the Bandits’ 10-3-1 overall record.
