Mid-Atlantic Division

(Summaries by Patrick Ramsdale)

Forward Christopher Friberg, New York Aviators

Friberg (‘02/Stockholm, Sweden) put on a clinic during New York’s three-game weekend. He opened the weekend with a two goal, one assist performance in the Aviators 6-1 victory over the Rockets. Friberg came back the next day and posted three assists as New York took down Buffalo in game one of the weekend series. The Stockholm native followed that up with a hat trick and an assist in the Aviators dominant victory on Sunday. Friberg is currently on a six-game point streak in which he has recorded multiple points in all six. He has 41 points (21G-20A) through 22 games this season.


Defense: Michael Harrel, Wilkes-Barre Scranton Knights

They say everything is bigger in Texas and the Frisco native brought a Texas sized performance this weekend as the Knights went 3-0. Harrel found the scoresheet in Thursday’s 5-2 victory over Utica with an assist late in the first period. He would then go on to score in back-to-back games against the Hitmen as he extended his point streak to five games.


Goaltender: Luke Remenyi, Wilkes-Barre Scranton Knights

Remenyi (‘04/Deerfield Beach, Fla.) has been a brick wall in net for the Knights this season as he took to the crease in two of the Knights games this past week. He stopped 14-of-16 shots faced in the 5-2 victroy over the Jr. Comets. He then followed that up with his second shutout of the season against the Jersey Hitmen. Remenyi currently sits on a perfect 9-0 record this season and is just one of three goalies who has not recorded a loss yet this season in as many games played.
