Austin Wisely Peoria Mustangs
Thanks to a 6-2 record in the month of December, the Peoria Mustangs are right in the thick of the NA3HL Central Division playoff race. Forward Austin Wisely, 18, was at the forefront for the team during the month as the native of Chillicothe, Illinois, accumulated 17 points (8 goals, 9 assists) in the eight games played and was a +7. Wisely (5’10/200) registered at least a point in all eight games during the month, which also included five multi-point games. Wisely had four, three-point games during December and currently leads the team in scoring with 38 points in 29 games played. Wisely was also called up to the NAHL to play for the Rio Grande Valley Killer Bees at the end of the month and into January, where he totaled one point in three NAHL games. “Austin has been great player for us all year and last month he stepped his game up and showed how dominant of a player he really is and with that, earned a call up to the NAHL,” said Peoria head coach Tyler Renette.
