Congratulations to this week’s USPHL Elite Players Of The Week from the Northern Divisions.
Forward: Balint Pakozdi, New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs.
Pakozdi (‘99/Hungary) contributed a hat trick and a pair of assists in a big win over the Springfield Pics last Friday, and he turned around and added a goal and an assist against the Cyclones on Wednesday, Feb. 6.
He has 30 goals and 75 points in 32 games for the Monarchs this season.
Defense: Ryan Sheridan, Northern Cyclones.
Sheridan (‘99/Mission Valejo, Calif.) was the top connector for goal-scoring forwards on the Cyclones last weekend against Hartford, ringing up six assists. His efforts have helped the Cyclones win nine in a row.
Sheridan improved to 20 assists and has 22 points this season in 37 games.
Goal: Ryan Selman, New Jersey Hitmen.
Selman (‘00/Mahwah, N.J.) started this season undefeated between September and October, but missed quite a bit of time between early December and late January.
He’s back now and in top form, having won both of his games since returning to the rotation. This includes a 25-save victory against a Team Beijing that improved dramatically throughout the course of this season. Selman stands at 9-2 for the year.
