Logan Nelson

Logan Nelson Alexandria Blizzard

The Alexandria Blizzard are one of the hottest teams in the NA3HL as they have won 10 in a row. A major reason for their success is the play of forward Logan Nelson. The St. Michael, Minnesota native is currently on a nine game point streak with multiple points in the last seven. Nelson made a name for himself at the NA3HL Showcase in Blaine, Minnesota as the veteran forward piled up 10 points in the three day event. He finished December with seven goals and 15 assists to give him 22 points. “Logan has really stepped up his work ethic and intensity as of late and it has paid off. He is a great skater and has a great shot, and when you add a great work ethic every shift, you are going to have success,” said Alexandria head coach Jeff Crouse.

Shane Bernhardson

Shane Bernhardson North Iowa Bulls

It is 2018 and the North Iowa Bulls have still not lost a game in regulation, defenseman Shane Bernhardson is a big reason why. Typically a stay-at-home defenseman, Bernhardson exploded to have the best offensive month of the season. His 17 points in December led all defenseman by a wide margin. He was also an astounding plus-25 in eight December games. His top performance came on December 30th against the Rochester Ice Hawks as the native of Apple Valley, Minnesota scored a hat trick and finished the game with five points. “Shane is playing with a high level of confidence and poise right now. We will be looking for him to continue at this high level as we get into a challenging part of our schedule,” said North Iowa head coach Todd Sanden.

Colin Cain

Colin Cain North Iowa Bulls

It was hard to get anything by Colin Cain of the North Iowa Bulls in the month of December. In five starts, Cain allowed just two goals. Giving him an unbelievable .983 save percentage and 0.40 goals against average. Similar to Nelson, Cain’s signature performances came at the NA3HL Showcase. On Day 2, Cain stopped 23 of 24 shots in a 2-1 victory over the Yellowstone Quake. He was even better the following day as the first place Texas Brahmas couldn't get any of their 21 shots past the goaltender from Hummelstown, Pennsylvania. Head coach Todd Sanden his confident his netminder will be in touch with North American Hockey League teams soon, “Colin is a elite goaltender at this level and should garner attention from NAHL teams for their NA3HL tender. He has the ability to play at that level.”
