October: Peters -- Barber -- Lutz

BOSTON, MA -- Mark it down, 2 months down and 5 to go for the 2017-18 season in the Eastern Hockey League (EHL). The 2nd month of the year brought with it plenty of great action, and numerous candidates for the latest set of TSR Hockey Stars of the Month.

The EHL is pleased to announce that Chris Peters (Walpole Express), Andrew Barber (Vermont Lumberjacks), and Korbinian Lutz (East Coast Wizards) have been named the TSR Hockey Stars of the Month for October.

The Stars of the Month will all receive a $20 TSR Hockey gift certificate.

Scroll down to read about each player's October performances, and remember to catch the #Eshow action all year long on HockeyTV.

Forward - Chris Peters (Walpole Express)

After tallying just 7 points in the month of September, Peters exploded for 21 points in 10 total October games. The '97 notched 6 goals and dished out 15 assists, helping the Express go 7-1-2 this past month. To add on to Peters stellar October, he also took part in the league's All-Star game as Team EHL took on Umass Boston back on the 21st. Walpole begins November in 1st place in the Boston Division and 5 points back of the New Hampshire Avalanche for the top spot in the North Conference. Peters will look to keep it that way, as the Captain will seek to lead his team with 6 more games on the schedule this upcoming month.

DEFENSEMAN - Andrew Barber (Vermont Lumberjacks)

Barber notched just pair of goals in 4 games during September, but just like Peters, flipped the script with 14 points in 9 total games during October. The '97 was named the Defenseman of the Week back-to-back times to kick-off the month.

Back for his 2nd season with Vermont, the Lumberjacks have leaned heavily on their top defenseman, and will continue to do so as they battle for playoff positioning. As November begins the Lumberjacks are in control of 2nd place in the New England Division, and 5th place in the North Conference. The upcoming month includes 8 more games for Vermont, with only 3 matchups on home ice at Leddy Park.

GOALTENDER - Korbinian Lutz (East Coast Wizards)

Just like Barber and Peters, Lutz turned his season around in the month of October. The German netminder started 1 game in September, dropping his EHL debut. Lutz's next 6 starts all came in October, as the Wizards goaltender put together a perfect 6-0-0 month. The '98 netminder owned a 1.26 GAA in October to go along with a .958 save percentage and 2 shutouts. Following suit with Barber once again, Lutz also won EHL Weekly Honors twice in October.

After a 1-4-0 month of September, Lutz was the backbone behind his team going 8-2-0 in October. Lutz will look to continue to anchor his team with 9 games coming up in November.
