Forward Jake Hale and goaltender Ethan Haider both earned spots on the NAHL Selects Red team and the NAHL Selects Blue team, respectively.
Head Coach, A.J. Bucchino severed as the head coach of the Midwest team. A.J. was impressed by the performance and confidence of the Magicians players throughout the tournament. “I was very happy with the performances by our players. We had guys who put themselves on the score sheet and others who contributed in other areas of the game.”
Haider earned back-to-back shutouts with 45 total saves. Hale and Stanton both earned a goal and Klein with an assist.
