WATERLOO BLACK HAWKS [ 5 ] vs. LINCOLN STARS [ 2 ]
Black Hawks defenseman Mikey Anderson was named to the NHL Central Scouting Preliminary List earlier this week, and he celebrated by putting Waterloo up 1-0 early in the first period. The University of Minnesota Duluth commit had 16 points in 57 games last season, and currently has three points in four games. Lincoln would respond with a goal of their own, but Waterloo scored four consecutive to pull away from the Stars. Second year forward Kevin Charyszyn scored twice after firing seven shots. The uncommitted forward has three goals in four games, one season after scoring 12 points in 54 games. Waterloo forward Garrett Wait was credited with three assists, the third multi-point performance of his USHL career. Nick Swaney continued his goal-scoring streak to three games, and has scored a point in every game this season. Goaltender Severi Isokangas was solid in net for Waterloo, stopping 28 of 30 shots for his first career USHL win.
GREEN BAY GAMBLERS  vs. TRI-CITY STORM 
Casey Mittelstadt took over the third period for the Gamblers. Green Bay was down 2-1 heading into the third when the University of Minnesota commit scored back-to-back goals. Mittelstadt now has five points in four games this season, and has scored five goals in six career USHL games. Josh Kosack sealed the win for Green Bay with an empty net goal, his second tally of the evening. Both goaltenders were solid in net, with David Hrenak earning his first career win after stopping 33 of 35 shots. Green Bay defenseman Jackson Charlesworth finished the game with two assists, the first two points of his USHL career. The Antigo, WI native is currently uncommitted.
Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 15th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2016-17. 30 or more players from the USHL have been selected in four consecutive NHL Drafts, and more than 400 players on team rosters last season committed to NCAA Division I schools, further establishing the USHL as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.
