JOHNSTOWN – The Johnstown Tomahawks and the North American Hockey League announced today that forward Nick Bruce was named the Bauer East Division Star of the Week for the week ending January 22, 2017.
Bruce earned four points (two goals, two assists) during the Tomahawks’ weekend sweep of the New Jersey Titans January 20-21 at the Cambria County War Memorial Arena.
The Fall River, N.S. native tallied two goals in a 4-1 win over the Titans on Friday, Jan. 20.
He rounded out an impressive weekend with a two-assist performance in another 4-1 victory over New Jersey on Saturday, Jan. 21.
“It was a big weekend for us getting a sweep at home versus a divisional opponent that we are battling closely with and Nick was a vital part of our success,” head coach Mike Letizia said. “He has been contributing all season long on all 200 feet of the rink and his offensive talents have really been shining through. He was making high-end plays throughout the weekend resulting in goals for himself as well as setting up his teammates with some beautiful passes. I am extremely proud of Nick and our entire team’s approach to the weekend and we will continue to look for Nick to contribute this way for us as our season progresses. He is someone that I believe is a quality division one prospect that could fit into a team’s lineup playing whatever role is asked of him.”
