Prince named Combat Hockey Second Star of the Week
The NAHL announced its Combat Hockey Three Stars of the Week yesterday, and for the second time this season, the Tornado captain was named as one of the three best players of the week.
On October 10, Prince was named the third star of the week after a five-assist weekend in a home sweep of the New Mexico Mustangs. Last week, however, Prince did his damage as a goal-scorer. The 20-year-old native of England netted a hat trick with an assist on Wednesday against Corpus Christi. He followed that up with four more goals on Friday in the Tornado’s next game against Odessa. Though he did not appear on the scoresheet on Saturday, Prince totaled seven goals (three of which on the power-play) and an assist on the weekend and was named the Combat Hockey Second Star of the Week. He was the lone skater honored with a star this week, sandwiched between goaltenders Peter Traber (Topeka) and Jacob Meyers (Alexandria).
Prince is fourth in the NAHL in goals and points with 22 and 44, respectively, while his 10 power-play goals are tied for the best in the league. He’ll lead his team back onto the ice at Dr Pepper Arena this Thursday and Friday, with games against both Corpus Christi and Odessa later in the week.
