Manhattan Beach product, Jr. Kings graduate Karpman gains monthly award from NAHL
Minot Minotauros forward Huston Karpman has been selected the Bauer Hockey NAHL Forward of the Month.
Karpman, 20, had his best month in an NAHL uniform in October as he tied for the league lead in points during the month.
The Manhattan Beach native had 16 points (eight goals, eight assists) in nine games in October, and was also plus-9 during the month. The NAPHL grad recorded at least a point in eight of the nine games during the month and had six multi-point games.
So far during the 2021-22 season, Karpman has recorded 20 points in 15 games and currently leads the Minotauros in scoring.
“Huston has been a leader for us in every sense of the word,” said Minot head coach Cody Campbell. “His ability to get to the middle and create offense has been very impressive over the last month. He has also been extremely valuable for us on the penalty kill. The entire Minotauros organization is excited to continue to watch Huston develop over the course of the season and we congratulate him on his Forward of the Month honors.”
“I am fortunate enough to play with some exceptional players with high-end skill and talent,” added Karpman. “I owe a lot of my success to those guys. I also have a great coaching staff that works with me weekly to develop me as a hockey player, and more importantly, a man. I look forward to continuing to help my team win hockey games and make a push for the Robertson Cup. I hope to keep improving my game in all areas and continue an upward trajectory in my development. If I continue to do these things, I hope to earn an NCAA commitment to a winning program. After that, I hope that one day I can play professional hockey.”
During his youth hockey days, Karpman played for the Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
