BOSTON, MA -- The Eastern Hockey League (EHL) season kept rolling this past week, with a number of great matchups and performances. With 18 of the 19 teams in action, there were plenty of worthy candidates for our weekly honors.
The EHL is pleased to announce that Jake Adkins (New Hampshire Avalanche), Niks Krollis (New Hampshire Avalanche), and Logan Kramsky (Philadelphia Revolution) have been named the TSR Hockey Stars of the Week.
The schedule gets bigger this week, with action on every day from Wednesday through Monday. The upcoming schedule includes every team hitting the ice, and 21 total games. The next set of TSR Hockey Stars of the Week will be released on Tuesday, October 16th at 9:00am. Remember to catch the #Eshow all season long on HockeyTV.
After losing both games at the first showcase of the season, Adkins and the Avalanche got back on track by winning all 3 of their games this past weekend. The '99 from Colorado had 2 goals and an assist in his team's 8-3 victory over the Connecticut RoughRiders on Saturday night, and then followed things up with the overtime winner against the New York Applecore on Sunday. Adkins then capped off a perfect weekend by adding another pair of goals and assist to his name during Monday's 10-3 win over the Connecticut Chiefs. In total Adkins now has 10 goals and 3 assists through his team's first 7 games, and he's scored at least a single goal in each contest to date. He'll look to keep the streak going this upcoming weekend when New Hampshire hosts the Philadelphia Jr. Flyers on Saturday and Sunday, and then the Philadelphia Little Flyers on Monday.
While Adkins took care of business up front, Krollis followed suit on the blue line for the Avalanche. Back for his 2nd season in the EHL, the native of Latvia tallied 3 goals and an assist during his team's weekend sweep. In total now for the year, Krollis has at least a point in all 5 games he's played in, and he's on a good pace to surpass his numbers from this past year. The '99 finished the 2017-18 season with 25 points in 40 total games for the Avalanche. Krollis will look to continue to be a leader for his team, as 4 of the next 5 games for New Hampshire will take place in the friendly confines of the Ice Den Arena.
Flipping over to the Mid-Atlantic Conference, and the Revolution won their only game they played this past weekend. Kramsky was the star during a big 1-0 shutout victory over the New York Applecore on Saturday. The '98 netminder turned away all 29 shots that were sent his way, earning his 6th victory of the season. The shutout was also the first of the year for the native of Freehold, NJ, as he's now well on his way to surpassing the 2 total shutouts that he notched during the 2017-18 season. Kramsky and the Revolution have just a single game between now and the final weekend of the month, as they take on the Philadelphia Little Flyers tomorrow at 12:00pm. The Revolution will look to lean on their anchor once again, as the top 2 teams in the #Eshow Power Rankings face-off for the 2nd time this season.
Ishizuka and the Warriors fell to the Seahawks Hockey Club on Wednesday, and then beat both the East Coast Wizards (Friday) and New England Wolves (Sunday) on their way to improving their record up to 4-3-1 for the season. The '99 from Rhode Island has been big for his team so far this season, tallying 4 goals and 2 assists in his first 7 EHL games. Including in those 4 goals are the game-winners from each matchup against the Wizards and Wolves from this past weekend.
