Congratulations to Captain Matt Kroska for being named the NA3HL's Second Star of the Week to conclude the regular season!
From the NA3HL website:
2nd Star: Matt Kroska, forward, North Iowa Bulls
For being his team's leading scorer this season with 74 points, North Iowa forward Matt Kroska, 20, has done it without much pomp and circumstance. The name of the game for the native of Elko, Minnesota, has been consistency and the ability to produce, which is exactly what he did during his final weekend of the regular season. Kroska (5'8/170) racked up eight points (2G, 6A) in two wins as North Iowa finished with the league's second-best record. On Friday, Kroska recorded three assists (including one on the GWG) in a 5-2 win against Breezy Point. On Saturday, he recorded two goals and had three assists in a 14-1 win over the Twin City Steel. He was also a very healthy +7 in the two victories. "Matt was so consistent all season long, but has really been good down the stretch for us," said North Iowa head coach Todd Sanden. "He has great vision and can really distribute the puck. He also is very good at creating with his skill."
Now get out to the Barn for Games 1 and 2 of the West Division Playoffs this Friday and Saturday at 7:30PM to cheer on your West Division Champion Bulls as they Stampede to the Silver Cup!
