Congratulations to our latest group of USPHL Premier Players Of The Week from the Northern Divisions.
Forward: Tristan Mock, Twin City Thunder.
Mock (‘99/Johnstown, Pa.) was in just his second and third games for the Thunder this past weekend, but he posted five goals and two assists, starting out with seven points through three Thunder contests. He also had the game-winner on Friday, when he scored a hat trick against the Boston Junior Bruins. The Thunder collected three points from a win over the Junior Bruins and an overtime loss, as well.
Defense: Yaroslav Tatarenko, Syracuse Stars.
Tatarenko (‘99/Stavropol, Russia) scored a natural hat trick - all in the second period - against the regional rival Rochester Jr. Monarchs on Wednesday, continuing a four-game goal and point streak. He had seven goals and two assists in four games between Jan. 26 and Feb. 6.
Tatarenko, who has seen two games with the NCDC Stars this year, has 13 goals and 18 points in 34 games.
Goal: Greg Smith, Boston Bandits.
Smith, a 2018 NCDC Draft selection by the Bandits, picked up his first two career USPHL Premier wins on Tuesday and Wednesday against a couple tough teams, the New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs and South Shore Kings.
An ‘01 from Armstrong, Pa., he stopped 60 of 62 shots over the two-day stint. He also saw time with the NCDC team in December.
