This week saw both the NAHL and NA3HL teams play a total of five games. Both teams had positives to talk about. For the NAHL team, who won two of three games against Danbury, Head Coach Bryan Erikson said.

“It was huge to get 4 out of 6 this weekend. Especially after the turd we laid on Friday. Friday was such a poor game for us that we just said you know what, we aren’t talking about it. No video, no meetings, let’s just pretend it didn’t happen.Told the boys they knew what to do on Saturday and they played a solid 60 minutes. And then today with us only having 1 healthy sub all weekend we were able to play hard and battle again for a complete game. Great job by Cullen DeYoung who played a bit on Friday and then both Saturday and Sunday. Other standouts were Matt Boczar, Kyle Schroeder and Joe Schubert. All 3 played relentless all weekend. It was great to see them just compete every shift in all zones. And we got scoring contributions from other parts on the lineup which was great like Schubert, Joey McGraw, Doug Friberg, Ryan Corcoran. Real team win this weekend. Now we have to go down there and they will want revenge so we need a really good week of practice and focus to be ready for 4 crucial points in Danbury.”

For the NA3HL team, lead by Head Coach Daryl Locke he noted the following on his team’s sweep in their first two games of 2022.

“I thought in Friday’s game the boys had good energy from the drop of the puck. We were attacking with pace and I think when we do that we have success. It was nice to see Tommy Lubin and Viktor Solokhin score. Viktor is a 2004 from Russia who is starting to show his skill. It’s nice to get that secondary scoring to help boost your team. Braeden Kennedy and Matt Nuzzolilo showed why they’re two of the best forwards in The NA3HL. Just consistently good night after night. Eddie Mulligan was excellent on the back end. His passing skills and defense are elite. Mason Joseph coming back from injury was solid in net. Overall, a good start to the second half of the season.”

“Today’s game we started fast. Our forecheck was solid and I think we put the Titans on their heels a bit. They always play us tough and we knew going in we needed that fast start. I was really happy for Jackson Schouten, a recent call up from our U16 Generals Team. He had a nice goal and added two assists for a three point game. Again, secondary scoring was key in the game. Tyler Ramm, a recent call up to our NAHL Team, was a major force again for us. His three goals , assist, and fight showed why he is a player to be reckoned with down the stretch. We suffered some injuries today including Cedric Savoie, who was injured during an altercation in the second period. I’m happy to report that he is doing fine and wants everyone to know he appreciates everyone’s well wishes. Our medical team will be very busy this week as we have six regulars out with injuries. Overall, happy gaining four points in the stands this weekend.”

Erikson added on the NA3HL team, where he is the assistant coach and general manager “ The thing I think was the key is they realized they can beat anyone out in Blaine but forgot that the way they do that is by out working our opponents not out skill them. And these games this weekend we did just that. Nice workman like win where we played hard in all 3 zones, finished hits and competed for 60 minutes. That was something we did in the first 2 games in MN but failed to do in the 3rd game and will be key to our success moving forward.”
