The SHL selected Anchorage Igloos C Nile Bernard as its Player of the Week. Bernard was the leading point-getter for Anchorage during their unbeaten week, putting up 6 points (3 goals, 3 assists). For the season, has a total of 17 points (7 goals, 10 assists), one behind LW Les Collins for the team lead.
On Sunday, Bernard scored the first goal of the game and assisted on the second as the Igloos downed Dakota 5-3. On Tuesday, he again produced a goal and an assist to help hand Michigan its first loss of the season, 4-1. On Thursday, Bernard scored the game’s last goal as Anchorage jolted the Jackalopes 4-1.
“Obviously, our top line is key to our success, but our second line has really done the job this year,” said Igloos coach Sam Castor. “You need depth to win championships, and I’m glad to say that we have it.”
