Week of Feb. 15, 2024

Games of Feb. 7-13, 2024


Summaries by Joshua Boyd / 


Forward: Jack Hanson, Pueblo Bulls

Hanson (‘03/Minneapolis, Minn.) factored in on all of the Bulls’ offense, albeit in a pair of tough losses during the past weekend. Hanson scored three goals and one assist for four points. With 44 points in 40 games this season, Hanson is second in Bulls scoring. 


Defense: Teddie Hember, Ogden Mustangs 

Hember (‘03/Stockholm, Sweden) posted three assists in two games to lead the Mustangs in scoring for the weekend. He was also on the ice more than any teammate, averaging 24:54 per game. He also registered a team-high 14 takeaways for the Mountain Division-leading team that came away with a weekend split. A second-year Mustang, he has 33 points in 35 NCDC games. 


Goaltender: Tucker Inabinet, Idaho Falls Spud Kings

Inabinet (‘03/Phoenix, Ariz.), who got his start in the NCDC as far back as 2021-22 with the Rockets Hockey Club, has been a huge addition for the Spud Kings since joining right around New Year’s Day 2024 from Rock Springs. He stopped 75 of 76 shots this past weekend for a clean sweep of Idaho Falls and Ogden. This included a 30-save shutout, which helped him to a 0.50 GAA and .987 save percentage for his two games. Over 11 games with Idaho Falls, he is 6-4-0-0 with a .937 save percentage. 


Rookie*: Lucca Ori, Provo Predators 

Ori (‘06/Gurnee, Ill.) has been an explosive player all season long for the Predators, as they continue to push towards making the NCDC playoffs in their first Tier II season. He put up three goals and an assist for four points in three games, during which Provo came away with a victory against Rock Springs. He was the team’s plus-minus leader for the weekend at +2 and he also posted 11 defensive takeaways. Ori joined the Predators from Lovell Hockey and, before that, the Chicago Fury 15U AAA program.
