JOHNSTOWN – The Johnstown Tomahawks announced today that forward Dalton Hunter was named the East Division Star of the Week for the week ending December 5, 2016.
Hunter notched six points (four goals, two assists) including a hat trick during a weekend sweep of the Northeast Generals.
This is the third time during the 2016-17 season that Hunter has received the honor of East Division Star of the Week.
The Greensburg, Pa., native picked up a goal and an assist in a 4-2 Tomahawks victory over the Generals on Saturday, Dec. 3.
He rounded out an impressive weekend with a hat trick and an assist as the Tomahawks defeated Northeast 7-2 during a Sunday matinee.
“We were fortunate to get a weekend sweep at home and Dalton was instrumental in our offensive output and success,” head coach Mike Letizia said. “He was making high end plays throughout the weekend and turned his efforts into statistical success. He has been such a consistent force for us since the start of the season, now leading the entire league in overall scoring, and maybe even more notably in game-winning goals. I am very proud of the way he and our group battled hard this weekend to secure four points. In my opinion, Dalton has certainly emerged as a very strong NCAA Division I prospect and I am really pulling for him to be rewarded for his efforts in the near future.”
The Tomahawks take on the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Knights Saturday, Dec. 10 at 7:30 p.m. in at Revolution Ice Centre.
