Forward: Makar Klochkov, Utah Outliers 

Klochkov (‘04/Moskva, Russia) was a great contributor in the Outliers’ two games against the Idaho Falls Spud Kings, which saw a split. He assisted on their only goal in a 2-1 loss on Dec. 1, and then posted a 2-2-4 line when the Outliers came back with a 5-1 victory on Dec. 2. Klochkov, a first-year player out of the Anaheim Jr. Ducks system, has 16 points in 15 game with the Outliers.
