Cypress native, Jr. Kings alum Christy garners weekly NAHL honors
The Divisional Stars of the Week is a weekly feature during the 2018-19 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: Jared Christy, forward, Austin Bruins
Newly-acquired forward Jared Christy, 20, paid immediate dividends with his new team as he helped the Bruins to a weekend home-and-home sweep of the Minnesota Magicians.
The Cypress native totaled six points (two goals, four assists) and was a plus-2 in the two wins.
On Friday, Christy, who was selected to play in the 2019 Top Prospects Tournament, had four assists in a 6-5 win over the Magicians, and then on Saturday, he scored twice in a 5-4 overtime win.
For the season, Christy has 43 points in 41 games.
“Jared was big for us this weekend,” Bruins coach Steve Howard said. “He’s a veteran player that is going to make the most of his last few months at the junior level and try to earn that scholarship to an NCAA Division I program. We are expecting him to continue to play hungry and help the organization earn a spot in the playoffs.”
