Congratulations to this week’s top performers from the USPHL 16U Division!
Forward: Jason Siedem, New Jersey Rockets.
Good things come to those who wait. The Rockets had to wait until November for the arrival of Siedem, an ‘02 from Madison, N.J. who is already committed to Boston College. Siedem posted two goals and added five more assists for seven points when the Rockets defeated the Connecticut Jr. Rangers on Jan. 5. In Siedem’s nine games, he’s missed scoring only twice, and he now has 21 points in nine contests.
Defense: John Greenwood, CP Dynamo.
The Dynamo earned a pair of wins against the Jersey Shore Whalers and haven’t lost in regulation in 10 games (8-0-2). They have done it offensively and defensively - in the latter category, they average less than two goals against per game, with 40 through 21. Greenwood (‘03/Nisyuna, N.Y.) posted two goals and an assist in the second game against Jersey Shore, and an assist one night earlier. He has scored seven of his 11 total points in his last six games.
Goal: Alex Houston, Skipjacks Hockey Club.
A second-year Skipjacks 16U goalie from Canton, Ohio (home to the Pro Football Hall Of Fame), Houston has been solid in net yet again this season. The highlight so far for the ‘02 was beating the P.A.L. Jr. Islanders in two straight to stand first overall in the National Division. Houston stopped 44 of the 46 shots he faced in just short of 99 minutes of action this past weekend.
