California products Voyatzis, Anthony, Bruno collect monthly honors from USPHL
The USPHL has announced that a trio of California products have earned monthly honors.
Ogden Mustangs forward Dimitri Voyatzis is an NCDC Mountain Division Forward of the Month, while the Seattle Totems’ Luke Anthony is a Northwest Premier Division Forward of the Month and Northern Cyclones forward Josh Bruno is a New England Elite Division Forward of the Month.
Voyatzis, an ‘03 out of Fountain Valley, continues to be a heart and soul player for the Mustangs, as he is now in his third season with the team and made the jump with them from the USPHL Premier to the NCDC with massive success.
Voyatzis posted four goals and eight assists for 12 points in eight games of November. He closed a 16-game scoring streak, but posted eight of his 12 points for the month within that streak. His 18:35 average of ice time per game led all Mustangs forwards.
In California, Voyatzis played for the Anaheim Jr. Ducks.
Anthony, a 2004-born Anaheim native, dropped in nine goals over seven games, and also put up four assists for 13 points.
He posted a 2-1-3 line in three of the team’s games and was a true sniper for the Totems, burying 28.1 percent of his 32 shots on goal. His plus-3 was also second among the team’s forwards.
Before going to the Rock Springs Grizzlies in an NCDC call-up in December, he had registered 22 points in 19 games on the season.
Back home, Anthony played for the Jr. Ducks, California Wave and Orange Lutheran High School.
Bruno, an ‘04 from Glendora, just rejoined the Cyclones in November and made an immediate impact, jumping out to three goals and 10 assists for 13 points in eight games, giving him an average of 1.63 points per game.
Bruno, a returning All-Star, is in his second season and has 83 points in 51 regular-season games for the Cyclones. He’s also skated in five USPHL Premier games this year.
During his youth hockey career, Bruno skated for the Empire Hockey Club, Orange County Hockey Club and the Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
