Daylan Kuefler, Kamloops Blazers, WHL (6th Round, 2022)
As he has shown all season, Daylan Kuefler is more than capable of producing points. On Friday night in Portland, Kuefler showed his teammates and fans that he is willing to do whatever the team needs him to do.
As a scuffle broke out behind the Portland Winterhawks net, Kuefler stepped in to pull one of the Winterhawks’ players out of the scrum. Words were exchanged, and the two dropped the gloves. Kuefler got his right arm loose and began unleashing haymakers before the two fell to the ice and the officials stepped in.
Aside from his lopsided victory with the fisticuffs, Kuefler also scored, falling only an assist shy of a Gordie Howe Hat-Trick.
The goal was Kuefler’s ninth of the campaign to go along with eight assists in 17 games.
Alex Jeffereis, Merrimack University, NCAA (4th Round, 2020)
The 9-3 Merrimack Warriors are ranked No. 13 in the country, with Isles prospect Alex Jefferies leading the way.
Jefferies is riding a four-game point streak for the 9-3 Warriors as they continue to climb the national rankings.
Just as he has so often this season, Jefferies assisted on a Matt Copponi goal, giving the Warriors the 1-0 advantage. The goal proved to be the game-winning goal in a 3-0 shutout for the Warriors.
Jefferies has racked up 14 points (four goals, four assist on the season)so far this season.
Isaiah George, London Knights, OHL (4th round, 2022)
In his seventh appearance of the season, Isaiah George recorded his first goal, albeit in a 6-4 loss to the Flint Firebirds.
George received the puck at the point where he found a lane toward the net and unleashed a wrist shot to beat the Firebirds goalie clean.
George, who recorded three points last week, now has four points on the season.
The Knights are surging up the OHL standings since George’s return from an injury suffered during islanders training camp.
