Austin Gryca, has two shut outs in his first two Jr outs in the Preseason Jamboree with the Laconia Leafs. Ben Torchia puts up 6 pts in two games for the Leafs as well, coming as one goal and 5 assists.
In the NAHL Nolan Culver of the K-Wings tallies his first regular season goal and has a Face off win % nearing 80%. Dalton Carter who appeared in two games in the Blain Showcase is sitting on 2 pts from 3 shots. His preseason numbers were outstanding and he is staying on that pace. Matt Wurst back on the Blue for the K-wings is +3 with 3 pts coming from a goal and pair of assists. Whats more he has broken up more offense and turned the puck back up far more, creating chances for the K-Wings to score. The K-Wings are being credited for being the most skilled team in the NAHL, and are being considered as Robertson Cup contenders, its great having so many Ohio HS Stars contributing on the same team, getting those accolades.
The real monster here is Connor Frey is 3rd in Bulls scoring with two goals and one asset, is +3 on just 6 shots with 11 PIM. Now hear this he is 5th leading NAHL D in scoring, and the offensive D man Frey is only 4 games in to his rookie season! Frey is positioned well the Bulls and the Bulls are in a position to once again the winningest regular season team, and return to the Robertson Cup. Word on the street is Frey will be visiting one the NCAA's elite programs in the coming weeks coming out of Blain, congratulations Connor. and all the former Ohio HS players chasing their dreams.
Connor Frey is a marked man. The offensive defenseman has been singled out by not one, not two but three TOP TEN NCAA D1 programs. Programs noted for their consistent showings in the NCAA Championship and for players advancing to the NHL, which is also closely following his progress. Once his selection is made we will hopefully be the first to publish his pending decision. Another with a looming decision is Culver, the 93 FWD out of Sylvania Northview, currently with the K-WIngs. Strong indications of the power house Hockey East Conference. Further congratulations of Columbus Blue Jackets MM, McDonald who made his verbal commitment to BGSU, the 6'2" RD man has plenty of time to fully mature before joining the Falcons shortly after they join the newly renovated WCHA.
