The North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL) announced today the Divisional Stars of the Week presented by Bauer Hockey for the week ending December 18, 2016.

Northeast Division Star of the Week: Blake Bennett, forward, Lockport Express
Heating up in the Northeast this weekend was Blake Bennett of the Lockport Express, who contributed eleven points in the team’s Showcase sweep. The Grand Island, NY native grabbed six goals and five assists through three games, which included two power-play goals and a game-winning goal. Bennett was +10 through the weekend. “Blake Bennett is a pure goal scorer, plain and simple. He always finds a way to put the puck in the net,” said General Manager and Head Coach Frank Vecchio.
