BOSTON, MA -- Another week checked off and our teams are now set and ready for the 2nd showcase of the season. This past week saw 14 of the 15 teams in action in the EHLP Division, and plenty of worthy candidates for our weekly honors.
We're pleased to announce that Lane Baldillez (New Hampshire Jr. Monarchs), Mitchell Stockley (Vermont Lumberjacks), and Carl Bear (New England Wolves) have been named the EHLP Stars of the Week.
Also, this week's EHLP Team of the Week/Honorable Mention Award is going out to the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers.
Baldillez and the Monarchs swept their weekend set of games, and improved their overall record to 16-4-2 (34 points) for the season. New Hampshire is currently tied for 2nd place in the North Conference with the Boston Bandits.
Baldillez's three-point weekend also included the shootout-winner on Friday against the Valley Jr. Warriors. The '97 forward from Texas has tallied at least a point in 8 of his last 9 games, and has racked 14 total points during that frame (7 goals, 7 assists).
Baldillez will look to continue to lead the way as the Monarchs face-off with the Lehigh Valley Jr. Rebels (Sunday) and the New Jersey Rockets (Monday) at the Cromwell Showcase.
Stockley and the Lumberjacks swept their weekend series with the Boston Jr. Rangers, and improved their overall record to 20-4-1 (41 points) for the season. Vermont continues to lead the way by 7 points in the North Conference, and is also only 1 point behind the Philadelphia Revolution for the league-lead in the standings.
Stockley's two-win weekend helps improve his record to 8-3-0 on the season. The '97 netminder from Pittsfield, Massachusetts turned aside 62 of the 67 shots he faced, while lowering his GAA to 2.56.
Stockley will look to continue to anchor his team when they take on the Lehigh Valley Jr. Rebels (Saturday) and the New Jersey Rockets (Sunday) at the Cromwell Showcase.
Bear and the Wolves swept their weekend set of games, and improved their overall record to 11-9-3 (25 points) for the season. New England is right in the thick of things in the North Conference, as the #4 through #8 seeds are separated by only 2 points.
Bear's four-point weekend also included the game-winner on Saturday against the Lehigh Valley Jr. Rebels. The '97 forward from Gorham, Maine now has 23 points in 22 games, including 7 points in his last 4 contests.
Bear will look to stay hot when the Wolves take on the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers (Saturday) and the Philadelphia Revolution (Sunday) at the Cromwell Showcase.
This week's EHLP Team of the Week/Honorable Mention Award is going out to the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers.
The Jr. Flyers swept the New York Applecore in convincing fashion, and improved their overall record to 18-4-1 (37 points).
The following players all had multi-point weekend for the Jr. Flyers.
