1st Star

Cody Ferriero, F, 1 GP, 2-0-2, +2

What is going with Cody Ferriero these days?  He looks like a completely different guy than we saw for most of last year.  This is the guy everyone expected to see when he came here.   He is slowly becoming an offensive force.  Friday night was his first career multi-point game and it also marked his second career game winning goal (the other came last weekend).  Ferriero is also on a 3 game point streak, which is a career high.  In 8 games this year, he already has racked up 5 points.  He had just 7 in 34 games last year.

2nd Star

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

Back to back 3 point weekends have made Quail Man the team leader in points with 11, despite missing the first 2 games of the season.    7 of those points have come in the last 4 games.  Quailer is currently on a 3 game scoring streak and a 4 game point streak, both career highs.  Friday night marked his first 3 point night in a Northeastern jersey.  After managing just 14 points in 38 games last season, Quailer is currently putting up a point a game so far this season with 11 in 11.  Last year was tough for him.  He was returning from injury and seemed to be snakebitten in front of goal.  This season he looks stronger and faster, and ever since he has been reunited with Cody Ferriero, the results have been great.

3rd Star

Braden Pimm, F, 1 GP, 1-2-3, +3

And where would Quailer and Ferriero be without the third muskeeter, Braden Pimm?  Pimm has also looked like a different player this year. Friday night’s 3 point performance (the first of his career) gives Pimm 8 points on the year.  He had just 9 all of last year.  Pimm worked hard last year, but he was used as more of a grinder on the lower lines.   This year, he has been moved up and been asked to take on some of the offensive load.  He has answered the call.  The tying goal in the season opener was huge, but he has continued to build on that.  His new linemates seem like the perfect fit and all 3 have had resurgences this year.  Its a testament to the coaching staff for putting them together, but also to the players for working hard and rebounding from a difficult season last year.
