By USPHL Staff/USPHL.com, 11/01/19, 6:30PM EDT
Forward Of The Month: Blake Tosto, Florida Jr. Blades
Tosto (‘99/West Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) repeats the Forward Of The Month distinction on the strength of his 17 goals and 21 points through 14 games. Through October, he scored 10 of those 21 points in just six games, and he also scored six of his 17 goals.
Tosto brings valuable NCDC experience (20 games with Syracuse last year) to the Blades lineup. He has shown his experience and skill set through his catalogue of goal types – first goals (five, leads league), power play goals (two), game-winning goals (one), unassisted goals (two).
Matt Minerva, Charlotte Rush
Jacob Kaplan, Hampton Roads Whalers
Dante Bagnasco, Charleston Colonials
Defenseman Of The Month: Egor Nosov, Florida Eels
Nosov (‘99/St. Petersburg, Russia) was the Defenseman Of The Week the last two weeks, so it should come as no surprise that he would wrap up the monthly honor as well. He has helped the Eels to a strong 2.60 team goals against average.
He has helped keep the shots against the Eels goalies to a manageable 32.75, while sending the puck towards the opposition just as often. Nosov, who averages nearly 30 minutes per game,has racked up 180 takeaways and 17 blocked shots this year.
Mac Diver, Charleston Colonials

Goaltender Of The Month: Jakub Kostelny, Florida Eels
Kostelny (‘99/Trencin, Slovakia) has been helping to keep the Eels near the top, as they entered November in second place overall in points for the Premier Division. Kostelny did his part, going 4-1 during the month and stopping 152 of 167 shots faced.
Kostelny’s eight wins on the season are tied for first overall with the Charlotte Rush’s Jack Riedell.
