Checking In With The USHL

The USHL is home to SIX Future 'Cats! We'll start with Mike Sislo.

Sislo is the most recent recruit added to the incoming roster from the USHL for obvious reasons. Sislo was named an Honorable Mention for March 12, February 20, January 8 and December 11 as Offensive Player of the Week. He has 21 goals and 43 points in 51 games.

Sislo is a teammate of a player that has waited a while to get here since committing to our 'Cats, Mike Borisenok. Borisenok is having an excellent year for himself with 10 goals and 22 points in 50 games.

Next and the most recent USHL defensive addition is Mike Beck, this is the last of the incoming Mikes for now, although we do have two Matts. Beck was Defensive Player of the Week for February 12. Beck has 7 goals and 39 points through 49 games with a + 22.

Teammate Future 'Cat, Phil DeSimone, is having a banner year. Even though I can't find any immediate evidence that he has been declared Player of the Week he is obviously in the running for Player of the Year. He is currently third (four points out of first with a game in hand) in the scoring race with 23 goals and 64 points in 49 games. This is also happens to be four points back from the mark set by current UNH scoring leader, Trevor Smith (68 points in 60 games) with eleven games in hand.

Honorable Mention for the week of February 12 for Defensive Player of the Week was none other than Future 'Cat, Blake Kessel (also HM for Nov. 6). Kessel, '08, has set 8 goals and 26 points in 48 games this year with a +13.

And last but not least, also joining the Good Guys in Blue in '08, is Will O'Neill. This recruit has garnered 4 goals and 6 assist with a +5 rating in 46 games.

Thus ends our USHL, Future 'Cat round-up for now. You can find all Future 'Cat stats in the left-hand column (scroll down) of your Wildcat Nation, UNH Men's Hockey Blog.

Go 'Cats!
