FRISCO, TEXAS – The North American Hockey League (NAHL) today announced the Divisional Stars of the Week presented by Easton for the week ending February 23, 2014.  The Divisional Stars of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2013-14 regular season that honors the top performing players in each of the four NAHL divisions. Only players that are nominated by their respective teams are considered for the Divisional Players of the Week award.


Central Division Star of the Week: Conor Andrle, forward, Brookings Blizzard

In what can be described as a ‘must-win’ situation Conor Andrle and the Brookings Blizzard captured a pair of weekend games from the Bismarck Bobcats in a home-and-home series. The 20-year-old forward from St. Louis Park, Minnesota, had three goals and an assist and had a +2 rating in the two weekend wins as the Blizzard maintained their playoff hopes. On Friday, Andrle (5’9/175) had two goals, including the game-winner, in a 4-2 home win over the Bobcats. The next night, Andrle scored the game-tying goal and assisted on another in a 4-3 win in Bismarck. For the season, Andrle is second on the team in scoring with 31 points in 46 games. He also played in last week’s NAHL Top Prospects Tournament for Team Central. “It was a short week with Top Prospects, but Conor played well there and took that momentum into Bismarck series,” said Blizzard head coach Cory Laylin. “He scored some big goals in the series and he played hard in defensive zone that translated into offense.”
