NAHL Midwest Division Star of the Week: Peter Morgan, forward, Kenai River Brown Bears (Tampa Scorpions, 2016-18)
It was a big weekend for the 1st place Kenai River Brown Bears and newly acquired forward Peter Morgan. The 19-year-old native of Sarasota, Florida, helped his team to a three-game weekend home sweep of the Springfield Jr. Blues. Morgan (5’6/155), who is also an NAPHL grad, posted six points (2 goals, 4 assists) and was a +5 in the three wins. On Thursday, he collected an assist in a 4-1 win. On Friday, he had two goals and two assists in an 8-4 win. On Saturday, he had another assist in a 5-2 win. In 11 games this season with Kenai River, Morgan has posted 11 points.
Atlantic Hockey Player of the Week: Blake Christensen, AIC (Motor City, 2010-11)
Christensen had a brilliant week for AIC as the Yellow Jackets split with the Lakers. He scored once and set up two other goals in Friday's record-shattering win, and then dished out another assist on Saturday. In the process, he broke AIC's career record for assists with 58.
Atlantic Hockey Goalie of the Week: Trevin Kozlowski, Army (California Titans, 2012-13)
Kozlowski backstopped Army to their first conference sweep of the season. He posted the best save percentage and goals against average of any goalie who started two games in the league last weekend, with 0.963 and 1.00 marks, respectively. Kozlowski allowed one goal in each game and has been a key factor in Army’s penalty kill success, which leads the nation at 97.5 percent.
Hockey East Defensive Player of the Week: Jeremy Swayman, Maine (Pikes Peak Miners, 2015-16)
Jeremy Swayman saved 62 of 64 shots this past weekend. The junior helped thwart the UNH power play unit by only allowing just one goal during their seven chances. Swayman allowed one goal Friday night, and one power play goal Saturday night. Swayman has backstopped Maine to a 7-3-2 overall start and second place in Hockey East.
