Empire Players of The Week - December 23, 2011
Player: Nick Centauro
Team: Junior Bruins - 95 (Mendon, MA)
Centauro’s strong play in the month of December continued and was a big part of the B’s perfect record in the month. With a short bench on Saturday and logging a lot of minutes against the Bandits top line Centauro helped keep two of the league’s leading scorers in check with them figuring in on only one goal. At the halfway point of the season the Bruins lead the conference and are second in the league with a GAA of just 1.91 and Centauro has been a big part of that strong team defense.
Player: Niall Caparon
Team: Boston Bandits - 92 (Chesterfield, MO)
Niall had 4 points in the Bandits two games this week. He had two goals in helping the Bandits beat the Breakers for the Bandits sixth win in a row. He followed that with a goal and an assist against the Jr Bruins.
