Week of Feb. 10, 2022

Southeast Division

Forward: Daniel Sieto, Hampton Roads Whalers

Sieto (‘05/Mississauga, Ont.) gave the league-leading Charlotte Rush fits over a three-game weekend over which he scored four goals and one assist for five points. His hat trick on Feb. 6 ended with the overtime game-winner. It also advanced what is currently a seven-game scoring streak, in which he has posted 7-3-10.


Defense: James Dunham, Charlotte Rush

Durham (‘01/Frisco, Texas) scored three assists for the Rush over the weekend from the blue line to help them go 2-0-1 in three games against their traditional rivals. A defending member of last year’s USPHL Elite Champions, Dunham was his team’s plus-minus leader at +5 and hits with 7 over the three-game weekend. He has 12 points in 20 games this year.


Goaltender: Devin Degestein, Carolina Jr. Hurricanes

Degestein (‘05/Wetaskiwin, Alb.) enjoyed his first career junior win when he stopped all 18 shots he faced from Potomac. Degestein is a recent acquisition for the Jr. Hurricanes as they prepare for the 2022 playoffs.


Florida Division

Forward: Justin Colton, Florida Eels

The Eels, enjoying a 14-0 winning streak, have crept to within two points of the league-leading Charlotte Rush. Colton (‘03/Parkland, Fla.) has started Florida with a line of 2-5-7 while scoring in all four of his first games of this month. His best of the four games was a 1-2-3 performance on Feb. 5 in the first of three against Atlanta. Colton now has 33 points in 28 games on the season.


Defense: Ryder Patten, Florida Jr. Blades

The Jr. Blades are 2-2 out of the February gate, enjoying a pair of big wins against the Palm Beach to end their most recent weekend. Patten (‘04/Drayten Valley, Alb.) had three goals and added one assist over the three more recent games. He had the game-winning goal on Sunday, as well. Defensively, he blocked two shots and made two hits while leading the Jr. Blades in ice time over the four games.


Goaltender: Jacob Mork, Florida Eels

Win, win and win some more. That’s the motivation for Mork right now as the Eels get ready to try to push their hot streak through the early March Florida Division playoffs and into the Nationals. He went up against the Jr. Blades on Feb. 2 and stopped 25 of 27, and then gave up zilch while stopping 17 against the Atlanta MadHatters on Feb. 6. He is now tied for the league lead in wins (15) and he is second in goals against average (1.75) and save percentage (.943).
