Congratulations to these Players Of The Week from the USPHL Premier’s Northern Divisions (New England, Northeast and Mid-Atlantic).
Forward: Brendan Schulte, Northern Cyclones,.
Schulte (‘98/Fullerton, Calif.) has had a big stretch of games over a course of 11 days, scoring two goals and two assists back on Jan. 19 as a massive winter storm approached New England. The Cyclones next played on Jan. 23, and Schulte scored the game-winning goal and two assists over a tough New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs team.
After posting an assist on Jan. 25, he had another 1-2--3 evening, including the GWG against another top squad, the Boston Bandits. He also earned an assist against the Bandits in the Cyclones’ Jan. 30 rematch with the Bandits. All told he had 12 points in the five-games-in-11-days stretch.
Defense: David Cicak, New Jersey Rockets.
After a seven-point performance in his last three games, Cicak (Roselle Park, N.J.) moved into a tie for the Rockets’ team scoring lead. He now has 30 points in 35 games and is tied with teammate Chance Gorman at the top.
On Jan. 19, he scored two goals (including the GWG) and added one assist, and a week later, he scored a power play goal and two assists for a second straight three-point game. He had an assist in the second game of last weekend against the rival New Jersey Hitmen. The Rockets have been on the upswing with a 6-3-1-0 mark their last 10 games.
Goal: Jake Horoho, South Shore Kings.
The Middlebury College commit out of East Greenwich, R.I., put together a pair of beauties over the last week against Springfield and the Twin City Thunder. He stopped all 39 shots by the Pics on Jan. 26 for his second shutout, while he turned away 38 of 39 Thunder shots on Jan. 29 for his second straight win.
He is now 15-8-1-1 for the 2018-19 season.
