West Division Star of the Week: Ritchie Marenis, forward, North Iowa Bulls
Although he played in just one game this past weekend, North Iowa forward Richie Marenis, 20, made his presence felt in a big way as the Bulls returned from a month-long break with an 11-1 road win against the Breezy Point North Stars on Saturday. The native of Riga, Latvia had a goal and five assists for a six-point night and was also a +5 in the win. One of the assists included the game-winning goal scored late in the 1st period. Marenis (6’1/190) is tied for the team lead in points this season with 11 in four games played. “Richie is a great skater and when you combine that with his physicality and his scoring ability, he becomes a big, all-around threat,” said Bulls head coach Todd Sanden. “He adds a lot to our offensive capabilities and is a reason that we have some good depth up front.”
Forward Tim Santopoalo was given honorable mention for his performance this past weekend as well.
