The North American Hockey League (NAHL) today announced the Divisional Stars of the Week presented by Combat Hockey for the week ending November 4, 2012. The Divisional Stars of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2012-13 regular season that honors the top performing players in each of the four NAHL divisions as nominated by their respective teams.
Central Division Star of the Week: Jordan Stejskal, defenseman, Brookings Blizzard
Brookings Blizzard defenseman Jordan Stejskal, 19, is riding a hot streak, which continued this past weekend in a weekend series at Aberdeen. The native of Grand Rapids, Minnesota, was able to chime in for four assists in two games as Brookings split a weekend set with Aberdeen. On Thursday, Stejskal (6’2/205) recorded assists on both Brookings goals in a close 3-2 loss. On Friday, he again recorded a pair of assists, this time on the first two goals of the game, as Brookings beat Aberdeen, 5-1. Stejskal was also a +3 during the weekend and is currently riding a three-game multi-point streak. His +6 mark this season ranks third on the team and six of his seven assists this season have come in his last three games. “Jordan is a player that really has come into his own and played very well for us lately,” said Brookings head coach Cory Laylin. “He makes good and smart passes, he makes good decisions with the puck and always seems to provide his teammates with a good breakout pass that gets our offense going.”
