MASON CITY, Iowa – When you score eight points in a week, especially against an undefeated team, you tend to draw a lot of attention.
Bulls forward Cam Fagerlee garnered plenty of attention, respect and applause with his eight points last weekend against the Willmar WarHawks, and his efforts were more than enough to be named the West Division’s Bauer Hockey Star of the Week. Fagerlee was announced as the West’s Star of the Week late Thursday afternoon, the second Bull to be so honored this season.
That eight-point run included four goals, pushing him to the top of the team’s scoring column this season. His goal late in the first period Saturday evening was the eventual game-winner in a 6-2 victory over the WarHawks.
“Cam has been very good to start the season,” said head coach Todd Sanden. “He’s a guy we are going to rely on for leadership and point production for the entire season.”
The St. Anthony, Minnesota native was merely one of the catalysts for the Bulls first line’s incredible weekend. Maplewood, Minnesota native Matt Dahlseide garnered even more scoring than his center in those two games, racking up seven assists in a nine-point series. One of his two goals was the eventual game-winner in the first period of Friday’s 11-1 shellacking. He also had the primary assist in Fagerlee’s winning goal the following day.
“Matt is a very important piece of our team and is looked upon to create offense nightly,” said Sanden. “It’s safe to say that if Matt is going hard and engaged in the game he has the opportunity to be an offensive leader for our team and a top player in the NA3HL.”
Right-winger Nick Bowlin rounded out the scoring rather nicely, adding two goals and five assists to the mix. In all, Sanden’s top line totaled up eight goals and 16 assists, with a +23 plus/minus mark between the three for the weekend.
This week, the three will have a chance to add on against the team that fell victim to the Bulls’ other Star of the Week in the opening week of the season. Mason Enright had five points in the Bulls’ sweep of Breezy Point, a weekend road trip that concluded with 9-0 and 4-3 wins over the North Stars. He notched a pair of goals in the first of those games, his junior debut.
Both of this weekend’s games against Breezy Point are scheduled for a 7:30 p.m. puck drop.
