3 Stars of the Week: 11/21

November 21, 2011

Stars of the Week

1st Star


Ludwig Karlsson, F, 2 GP, 3-0-3, +3

Its 3 straight games with a goal for Ludwig.  He now leads the team in goals and points.  No matter who he is playing with, he makes things happen.  Karlsson doesn’t even turn 21 for another month, but you would never know it by watching him play.  He has an amazing shot and great vision.  His goals usually consist of him getting the puck, creating space and then just putting it top shelf. But he also makes some great passes that are aided by his quick release.  He is a great player to watch and he looks even more dominant every weekend.

2nd Star

Steve Quailer, F, 2 GP, 2-1-3, +3

Like Karlsson, Quailer was once a freshmen phenom.  But a season ending knee injury ended his sophomore season before it began and he has struggled since returning.  He has shown glimpses of the player he was, but overall he has been unable to replicate what he once was.  But now he is back on a line with his good friend Cody Ferriero and things are finally starting to click for Quail Pants.   His goal Friday was the result of hard work defensively and his speed.  He has even started to see time on the PK unit.  Hopefully weekend like this become the norm for Quailer and he can live up to the lofty expectations created by his freshman year.

3rd Star


Drew Ellement, D, 1-1-2, +4

Ellement had another good weekend, but this one just seemed to be one of his best.  He picked up his first collegiate goal on Friday when he scored on an empty net from his own blue line.  Earlier in that game he set up what proved to be the winning goal when Cody Ferriero tipped his rocket from the point by Kvein Gates.  He finished the game with a +3 as a result of some fine defense plays.  On Saturday, he continued to be a steady influence on the blue line.  Ellement was basically a last minute pick up and he did not even see the ice for the first half of his freshman year.  But once he worked his way into the lineup, he has found a way to stay in it.  Now as a junior, he is really making strides and proving to be consistent and reliable. And that is huge for this team.
