The United States Hockey League (USHL) announced Tuesday the Forward, Defenseman and Goaltender of the Week for Week 3 of the 2019-20 season. This is the second time in his career that Waterloo Black Hawks goaltender Logan Stein has been named USHL Goalie of the Week, while Muskegon Lumberjacks forward Oliver MacDonald and Sioux City Musketeers defenseman Dominic Vidoli earned the first weekly honors of their career. MacDonald registered seven points (5-2-7) in a pair of games last weekend, including a four-goal game, while Vidoli recorded three points (1-2-3) in his lone game of the week and Stein picked up a pair of wins, including allowing only one goal on 45 shots. The USHL is America's only Tier I junior hockey league and continues to lead the world in the advancement of Division I college hockey athletes.

Lumberjacks forward Oliver MacDonald earned his first Forward of the Week award with a dazzling seven-point weekend (5-2-7), including a four-goal game (4-0-4) on Friday. This was the first time since 2016 that a Muskegon skater registered four goals in a single game. MacDonald, a University of Nebraska-Omaha commit, now has nine points (7-2-9) in six games this season, which is tied for fourth in the league. The second-year forward is just one goal shy of last season's total (8) through 53 games as he finished with 27 points (8-19-27). While MacDonald registered eight multi-point games last season, this weekend's four-point (4-0-4) and three-point (1-2-3) nights marked the first time in his USHL career he registered more than two points in a single game. 

Defenseman - Dominic Vidoli (Sioux City)

Musketeers defenseman Dominic Vidoli registered a three-point night (1-2-3) in his lone game of the week, a 6-4 home victory over the Madison Capitols on Saturday night. Vidoli is tied for the league lead among defensemen with seven points (2-5-7) in three games this season. In all three of his games, Vidoli has registered multiple points, which is one less than he recorded in all of last season's 18 games (4).

Black Hawks netminder Logan Stein played in, and won, his first two games of the season over the weekend with Friday and Saturday night wins. On Friday, Stein entered the game in a relief role and backstopped a come-from-behind win for the Black Hawks with 18 saves on 19 shots. The following night, Stein got the start and recorded a 26-save shutout in front of a home crowd against Western Conference rival Tri-City Storm. Stein's two wins included a 0.56 goals against average and .978 save percentage and his second shutout of his USHL career. The Ferris State University commit finished with a 16-6-1-0 record in 2018-19 with a 2.81 goals against average and .893 save percentage. 

Headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, the USHL celebrates its 18th season as the nation's only Tier I junior hockey league in 2019-20. The USHL had 55 players selected at the 2019 NHL Draft, and more than 800 alumni are currently on NCAA Division I rosters, further establishing the USHL as the world’s foremost producer of junior hockey talent.
