Week of Sept. 22, 2022
Forward: Damon Kiyawasew, Florida Eels
Second-year Eel Kiyawasew (‘02/Sherwood Park, Alb.) put up a 3-2-5 line, including a shorthanded goal, to help the Eels sweep the Atlanta MadHatters in their first weekend. That helped tip the scales to exactly a point per game career average for Kiyawasew (35 points in 35 games).
Defense: Nick Storti, Florida Jr. Blades
Storti (‘03/Springfield, Pa.) put together an impressive 1-3-4 weekend as the Jr. Blades won both their games against Columbia, giving up just one point in going to overtime in Game 2. He also led the defense with a +4 rating on the weekend.
Goaltender: Duncan Rolleman, Florida Eels
Rolleman, the second-year Eels goalie out of New Hamburg, Ont., stopped 34 of 35 shots in his start against the Atlanta MadHatters on Sept. 17. Rolleman, who won 15 Premier games as a rookie last year, is certainly off to a great start.
Forward: Valerii Kneib, Potomac Patriots
The parade of USPHL Premier veterans continues, as the second-year Pat, an ‘02 from Bratsk, Russia, posted two goals and four assists for six points as the Patriots engineered a two-game sweep of the first-year Nashville Spartans. Kneib started the 2020-21 season with the Elite Patriots but moved up to Premier early and hasn’t looked back.
Defense: Kameron Williams, Richmond Generals
Williams (‘02/Clarks Summit, Pa.) has had a terrific start to his fifth season in the USPHL and fourth in the Generals organization. Along with making 29 takeaways on the weekend, he also found time to score a goal and add four assists for five points in the Generals’ three-point weekend against the Hampton Roads Whalers.
Goaltender: Tobias Iglovsky, Potomac Patriots
The ‘03 from Slovakia has proven himself out of the gate, putting up a 46-save shutout against the Nashville Spartans on Sept. 17. He is currently 1-0 with a .939 save percentage and a 2.06 goals against average in three appearances so far.
