Empire Players of The Week - October 28, 2011
Player: Cody Calcagno
Team: Jersey Hitmen - 1995 (Ringwood, NJ)
The Hitmen’s rookie defenseman has been solid all season long, but had a breakout weekend in Syracuse. Calcagno tallied one assist on Saturday followed by two on Sunday to give him three points on the weekend as the Hitmen claimed 3 out of 4 points on the road. Perhaps even more impressive was Calcagno’s +4 rating while playing heavy minutes against the key members of Syracuse’s potent scoring attack.
Player: Matthew Flynn
Team: CD Selects - 1995 (Saratoga Springs, NY)
Matthew had a breakout weekend with 7 points (3 G, 4 A), including a 4 point game on Sunday in a 6-1 win at the Valley Junior Warriors. In addition, Matthew was a great leader who was blocking shots and back-checking consistently.
Players: Evan Moorhouse
Team: Springfield - 1994 (Westfield, MA)
Evan had his best game of the season as he stopped 38 Boston Bandits shots while allowing only one goal. He was most impressive in the 3rd period stopping a 17 Bandits shots and preserving the one goal lead. It was a performance the team needed to get out of their 3 game slump.
