Ben Meyers – 3 Games Played – 4 Goals, 3 Assists
Fargo Force’s Ben Meyers has been named the USHL’s forward of the week. Meyers would score four goals and seven points in three games, starting with an assist Wednesday. He’d follow up that decent start with two goals and four points Friday before potting two more goals Saturday.
Meyers now has a 15-game point streak dating back to Nov. 30. During that stretch, Meyers has scored an impressive 13 goals and 27 points. He’s tied for the league-lead in points with 45, including 24 goals on the year. He’s also only been held off of the scoresheet four times in 31 games this season.
Cam York – 1 Game Played – 3 Goals, 4 Assists
Cam York has been named the USHL’s defender of the week. It only took one game for York to earn himself player of the week honors. York certainly made the best of that one game with a hat trick and four assists, totaling seven points on the night.
It was a historic game for York who became the first player in Team USA history to produce seven points in a single game. It was also the first time that a Team USA defender has recorded a hat trick since Vancouver Canucks’ prospect Quinn Hughes scored four times on Dec. 30 in 2015.
Jared Moe– 3 Games Played – 3 Wins, 0.67 GAA, .972 SV%
Jared Moe, of the Waterloo Blackhawks, was selected as the USHL’s goaltender of the week. Moe played in three games last week and would go undefeated with a sparkling 0.67 goals-against average and .972 save percentage.
He’d kick his week off with a 21-save shutout Tuesday before making 23 saves on 25 shots Friday. He’d finish off his strong week with another shutout Friday when he’d make 25 saves on 25 shots. He’s kicked his game into gear lately and has allowed two goals or fewer in each of his last four games and five of his last seven contests.
Moe has now compiled a 13-7-0-3 record with a 2.81 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage this season. Both of those marks rank fifth in the USHL among goaltenders.
