Forward of the Month

Austin Wisely

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.

Defenseman of the Month

Evan Mills

Evan Mills North Iowa Bulls

As North Iowa rolled to a 7-1 record and 1st place in the NA3HL’s West Division during the month of December, the addition of defenseman Evan Mills, 19, really paid off for the team. The native of Shawnee, Kansas, had a great month, recording 10 points (4 goals, 6 assists) in the eight games played, along with a +8 rating. Mills (6’1/192) recorded at least a point in six of the eight games played during the month, which included two multi-point games and a game-winning goal. In a win over Minnesota on December 20th, Mills had a goal and three assists for a four-point night. He also scored the game-winning goal in a win over Bozeman at the NA3HL Showcase back on December 9th. For the season, Mills has scored 19 points in 20 games with the Bulls. Mills began the season playing in the NAHL for the Soo Eagles where he recorded one goal in seven games played. "Evan is a defenseman that brings the full package.  He skates well, snaps passes hard and accurate.  He is also a physical presence and brings offense to our team. He has one of the hardest wrist shots I have seen for some time which has been effective for us on the power play,” said North Iowa head coach Todd Sanden.

Goalie of the Month

Alec Rounds

Alec Rounds Cleveland Jr. Lumberjacks

Although he did not play in a large amount of games during the month of December, the ones that Cleveland goalie Alec Rounds did play it were made worthwhile by the veteran netminder. The 20-year-old native of Laguna Beach, California, played in three of Cleveland’s five games during the month as the Lumberjacks posted a 4-1 record. Rounds (6’2/187) posted a perfect 3-0 record during the month, while allowing just three goals in the process. He faced 104 shots and made 101 saves, which was good for a .97 goals against average and a 97.1% save percentage. On December 8th, Rounds made 44 saves in a 4-1 win over Nashville. On December 9th, he made 19 saves in a 5-0 shutout of Glacier and on December 21st he made 38 saves in a 3-2 shootout win over Toledo. Rounds ranks 5th in the NAHL in save percentage at 93%. “As a team we have been playing better the last two months. Alec has played very well consistently during this time. He is playing the way we thought he would when we traded for him last August,” said Cleveland head coach Bob Jacobson.
