Corey Schueneman, Des Moines Buccaneers
The defenseman recorded three points (2g, 1a) and a plus-three rating as the Buccaneers split a two-game weekend. He scored on the power play in Friday’s 5-2 victory over the Lincoln Stars. The 19-year-old then had two points (1g, 1a) in Saturday’s 4-3 loss to the Omaha Lancers, which included his fourth goal in a span of five games. Schueneman leads all USHL defensemen in scoring with 39 points (14g, 25a) through 45 games, and he leads blueliners in goals (14) and power play goals (6). The Milford, Michigan native will now return to his home state after being acquired in a USHL trade deadline day deal with the Muskegon Lumberjacks. The product of the Little Caesars youth hockey program will play college hockey at Western Michigan University beginning next season.
