Empire Players of The Week - February 12, 2012
Player: Phillip Kreuzer
Team: Applecore - 95 (Long Island, NY)
This past weekend Phillip Kreuzer of NY Apple Core recorded 4 goals and 1 assist
against the Philadelphia Revolution. He scored 1 goal and added 1 assist on
Saturday and exploded for the first hat trick of his junior career on Sunday.
Kreuzer used his dynamic speed and incredible snap shot to attack the Revolution
all weekend. He now has 10 goals and 13 assists on the season.
Player: Kyle Webb
Team: Jr Bruins - 94 (Reading, MA)
With the Bruins being hit by the injury bug of late (forwards Conor Esrick, Tucker
Cobb and Jason Michaud as well as defensemen Ryan Blais) it has forced the team
to dress only 5 defensemen for the last 5 games and with three games in three
nights this past weekend and four games in five nights the healthy defensemen
have logged a lot of minutes and none more so than captain Kyle Webb. Webb
has been excellent over the this stretch not only with his on ice play but with his
leadership as well. He is playing approximately 28 minutes per night seeing time
in all situations.
