UNH Recruits Update: Week 1

Most of the UNH Recruits have begun their regular seasons. From now until the end of league playoffs, I'll be posting a weekly update of the recruits' statistics along with a report on outstanding individual accomplishments for the week. For Week 1, there are 6 recruits who have not begun the season either due to injury or league play has not begun for their team. As you'll see, the season is in full swing for the rest of the UNH Recruits.

Player of the Week - Andrew Poturalski

Three recruits have gotten off to fast starts - Andrew Poturalski, Collin MacDonald and Tyler Kelleher. After a strong preseason with the Jersey Hitmen (EJHL), MacDonald, a 2012 Recruit, has a goal and 5 assists in the first 5 games of the regular season. This is MacDonald's first season in the EJHL. 2014 Recruit, Tyler Kelleher, has made the jump from prep school hockey at Deerfield Academy to the USA U-17 NTDP team, which plays in the United States Hockey League. In his very first game in the USHL, Kelleher scored 2 goals. Ordinarily, I'd name either MacDonald or Kelleher as "Player of the Week". However, this week, that title goes to 2013 Recruit Andrew Poturalski. In his first season of junior hockey, playing for the Buffalo Jr. Sabres of the Ontario Junior Hockey League, Poturalski has scored 8 goals and 8 assists in the first 8 games. In the OJHL, he is tied for 3rd in goals scored and tied for 5th in total points. A goal-a-game and 2 point-a-game pace will be difficult to maintain but it is an impressive accomplishment.
