8. Tri-City Storm

5-4-0-2, Last Poll: 2

 

The Storm sit at fifth in the standings due to the Regulation/Overtime Wins (ROW) tie-breaker, but their recent 3-0-0-1 record to end the month of October vaulted the team up the standings. Veterans Alex Limoges and Paul Washe have supplied a consistent dose of offense for Tri-City, while newcomer Wyatt Bongiovanni has stepped up to take on a larger role with the team. The uncommitted Bongiovanni enters November with a five-game point streak, and has produced a point in nine of the Storm’s 11 games this season. Veteran goaltender Dayton Rasmussen has been good early as well, going 5-2-0-1 with a 2.30 GAA and .914 sv%.

 

 

7. Youngstown Phantoms

7-4-0-0, Last Poll: 10

 

Both Alex Esposito and Buffalo Sabres prospect Brett Murray had a solid October. Esposito ranks second in USHL scoring with 14 points in 11 games, while Murray is tied for sixth. Goaltending has also been impressive for the Phantoms. Ivan Kulbakov is 6-1-0-0 with a 1.86 GAA and .921 sv%. Rookie Curtis Hall is tied for fifth in USHL rookie scoring and finished the month of October with goals in two of his last three games. It appears the mix of veterans and rookies, along with steady goaltending is working for Youngstown. The Phantoms ended the month of October by handing the Chicago Steel their first loss of the season in a closely fought 3-2 victory.
