Bearcat-of-the-Week honours went to goalie, Myles Hektor. In Game 2, he turned aside 23 of 25 Mariner shots to give his team the chance. Unfortunately, that performance did not reap the reward the performance deserved. It was a great game which went the other way.
He got his hockey start with the Vernon Hills Ice Dogs working his way through the ranks to the Chicago Mission Program where he played four seasons of High Performance U 16, U 18. At the end of his second U 18 year, he was called up to the NAHL’s Kent River Bears in Alaska. He entered the junior level with the Blind River Beavers (NOJHL) in the 2016 – 2017 season setting new team standards for wins, home wins and lowest GAA. Last year, he played 15 games with the Kantats Lazers (CCHL) before coming East to join the Edmundston Blizzard, playing 13 regular season games (2.57 GAA) and 7 in playoffs enroute to Fred Page Cup play. Last month the Bearcats announced his commitment for studies and hockey with the University of Wisconsin Superior Hockey Yellow Jackets.
