He holds a 13-13-26 line in 27 games in this, his first North American season. 


Defense: Seth Rakosky, Connecticut Jr. Rangers 

The Connecticut Jr. Rangers enjoyed a sweep against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights, and Seth Rakosky played a huge part of that.

Goaltender: Primo Baldassarre, Connecticut Jr. Rangers

He just keeps getting it done. In two games against the Knights, Baldassarre (‘04/Glenolden, Pa.) stopped all 37 he faced on Dec. 16, and for the whole two game performance, he stopped 83 of the 85 shots he faced  against the Knights. He is 5-2-0-0 with a 1.58 GAA and .962 save percentage.
