The Granite City Lumberjacks are sitting atop of the West Division thanks to a 7-2 record in the month of October. Forward Tanner Skaja, 19, led the Lumberjacks with 16 points (6 goals, 10 assists) in nine games played during the month. The local native of St. Cloud, Minnesota, had four multi-point games during the month. He was named the West Division Star of the Week back on October 7th for his eight points in two games performance. Skaja (6’0/180) also had multi-point games in wins over Twin City, Wisconsin and North Iowa. He was also a +7 during the month. Skaja ranks 2nd on the team in scoring with 18 points in 14 games played. “Tanner has a big offensive upside and is developing into a very good, well-rounded player. He is improving defensively as well and once all that comes together he is going to be someone that is very successful at the next level. It is good to see a local kid really making the most of the opportunity,” said Granite City head coach Brad Willner.

Goalie of the Month

Evan Hauser

Evan Hauser Great Falls Americans

It was another perfect month for the Great Falls Americans, who remained the only undefeated team in the league with an 8-0 record in October. It all starts with defense for the Americans and a large part of that success is goaltender Evan Hauser. The 20-year-old native of St. Paul, Minnesota, was outstanding during the month as he faced a total of 189 shots in the five games he played in and made 184 saves, good for a 97.4% save percentage. Hauser (6’2/180) posted a perfect 5-0 record during October and was named the Frontier Division Star of the Week on October 28th.  Perhaps the most amazing stat for Hauser during the month was that even though the Americans went undefeated, Hauser faced an average of 37.8 shots per game in that time span. Hauser is tied for the NA3HL lead in wins and ranks 2nd in both goals against average and save percentage. “The first thing that comes to my mind is the consistency Evan has shown. He is motivated because it is his final year of junior hockey and he wants to play at the next level. He is a big part of our success to date. Defense is important to us and it all begins with him,” said Great Falls head coach Jeff Heimel.
