Martin Pospisil – 3 Games Played – 2 Goals, 5 Assists

Sioux City Musketeers forward Martin Pospisil has been named the USHL Forward of the Week for the fourth week of the season. Pospisil played in three games last week and recorded two goals and seven points with a multi-point effort in each contest.

The 18-year-old Calgary Flames prospect recorded an assist and scored two goals, including game-winner against the Fargo Force on Oct. 18. He’d record three assists just a day later on Oct. 19, also against the Force, and would add another goal and assist on Oct. 20 against the Waterloo Black Hawks.

Ryan Johnson – 2 Games Played – 1 Goal, 2 Assists

Sioux Falls Stampede defender Ryan Johnson has been named the USHL Defender of the Week. The 17-year-old blueliner played in two games last week, scoring a goal and adding two helpers in the process.

The three points that Johnson produced last week all came in the Stampede’s 6-5 overtime victory against Waterloo on Oct. 19, including the primary assist on Cade Borchardt’s game-winning goal at the tail-end of the overtime frame.

This would also mark the first time in Johnson’s career that he recorded three points in a USHL game. He’s now up to one goal and four points in seven games last season which is the highest point total for any rookie defender in the USHL thus far.

Evan Fear – 1 Game Played – 0.00 GAA, 1.000 SV%

Green Bay Gamblers’ goaltender Evan Fear took home the USHL’s Goalie of the Week honors for the fourth week of the season. Playing in one game for the Gamblers against the Dubuque Fighting Saints, Fear stopped all 43 shots that he faced and earned his first career USHL shutout.

With the victory, Fear now boasts a 3-2-0-0 record with 2.59 goals-against average and .924 save percentage. His save percentage ranks sixth among all USHL goalies with more than one game played while his goals-against average ranks ninth.
