The defenseman contributed five points (2g, 3a) as the Buccaneers won three straight road games during the week. He scored the game-winning goal and dished out two assists in the 5-3 victory against the Omaha Lancers on Tuesday. It was his second game-winning goal of the season, tying him for first in the USHL. The 19-year-old dished out an assist in Saturday’s 5-3 win over Team USA before finishing his weekend with a goal in Sunday’s 3-1 victory against Team USA, extending his point streak to four games (2g, 4a). The Bismarck, North Dakota native leads all USHL defensemen in scoring and is tied for fifth overall in the League with nine points (4g, 5a) through seven games. His point total already surpasses his total of six points (1g, 5a) he recorded in 35 games last season for the Buccaneers.
