Forward Of The Month: Wil Cundy, Potomac Patriots

The Patriots’ young leading scorer, an ‘02 out of Manassas, Va., proved that he will be playing hard until the final buzzer of the season. While Potomac as a team may be out of the Elite playoff picture, Cundy made sure to make life a little difficult on his opponents on the way out of the season.

This included a four-goal, one-assist effort on Jan. 25 against the New York Aviators, a team still fighting for home ice in the Mid-Atlantic playoffs. They also defeated the Rockets Hockey Club – the other team in the same Mid-Atlantic home ice quest – along with beating a strong Springfield Pics squad in the North Division.

Against the Pics in the first game of 2020, Cundy scored the game-tying goal that set up teammate Fisher Hall’s OT game-winner. For the month, Cundy had a very impressive 10-4-14 line.


Honorable Mention

Guillaume Lalancette, Charlotte Rush


Defenseman Of The Month: Brady Burke, Richmond Generals

Burke (‘03/Denver, Pa.) continues to establish himself as one of the best defensemen in the entire USPHL Elite Division – and he is still just under four months away from his 17th birthday.

Burke continues to show what a bright future he has in the USPHL, after already posting 30 points in 40 USPHL Elite games. This comes after an eight-point season on the defense for the Palmyra Black Knights 16U team last season.

During January, Burke posted a string of three straight two-point games and four multi-point efforts overall en route to 11 points in January. Along the way, he helped his team go 6-3-1-0 in January, pushing their way into first place (by one point) in the Southeast Division.


Honorable Mention

Kevin Holman, Tampa Bay Juniors


Goaltender Of The Month: Alexandre Caron, Florida Eels

In Caron’s “Welcome To The USPHL” moment, he went up against the Mid-Atlantic Champions the Jersey Hitmen, the first team to clinch a berth in the USPHL Nationals. Caron (‘01/Sorel-Tracy, Que.) stopped 26 of 27 shots in his Jan. 3 debut against the Hitmen. A month later, Caron still has not lost a game in any situation of 65 minutes or less, going 4-0-0-1 to start his career in the league.

In his most recent game, he stopped 31 of 34 shots put on him by Tampa for a 6-3 win in a seesaw battle for first place in the Florida Division. All told, he has a goals against average of 2.36 and a save percentage of .931 in USPHL Elite play.
