Vince Pedrie, Bloomington Thunder
The defenseman scored a goal and posted a plus-six rating as the Thunder earned a weekend split. He netted his team’s first goal in Saturday’s 7-3 victory against the Sioux City Musketeers. The 20-year-old also finished the night with a plus-six rating, the best plus/minus rating in a game by a USHL player this season. It is the highest plus/minus mark in the League since the 2012-13 season when Jeff Taylor (Dubuque Fighting Saints) and Will Butcher (Team USA) finished games with a plus-seven rating. Pedrie is tied for fifth among USHL defensemen with 20 points (9g, 11a) and his nine goals are second-most among blueliners. The Apple Valley, Minnesota native will play college hockey at Quinnipiac University next season.
