USHL Site Players of The Week
The United States Hockey League announced the CCM Forward, Defenseman and Goaltender of the Week for Week 25 of the 2016-17 season. The Waterloo Black Hawk's Alex Limoges and Fargo Force's Blake Lizotte earned Co-Forward of the Week honors thanks to five-point weekends, while Limoges' teammate Jake Ryczek and Des Moines Buccaneers blueliner Mario Ferraro both had one goal and two assists on the weekend en route to sharing Defenseman of the Week. Bloomington Thunder netminder Logan Halladay was named Goaltender of the Week for the second time this season, as he made 92 saves over three games to extend the Thunder's point streak to five games. CCM Hockey is the official equipment provider of the USHL.
Limoges has been a strong offensive player all year long, but he has fit in exceptionally well with the Black Hawks since coming over from the Tri-City Storm earlier this season. In his 11 games with Waterloo, Limoges has scored 16 points (5G, 11A), giving him 47 points (18G, 29A) in 49 games overall. He is in his second USHL season and has 86 points (32G, 54A) in 90 career regular-season games. He is also a proven playoff performer, as he had 14 points (5G, 9A) in 11 games last season to help the Storm win the Clark Cup.
