NOJHL names its Eastlink TV 3 Stars of the week

SUDBURY – The Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League announced Monday that a pair of Soo Eagles in goaltender Kade Phipps and forward Chris Murphy along with Kirkland Lake Gold Miners forward Alex Storjohann have been named the Eastlink TV 3 Stars of the week for the period ending Oct. 23.

KADE PHIPPS, (G) SOO EAGLES – The recently acquired Phipps impressed in his NOJHL debut as he won his first two starts helping the Eagles secure four points in the overall standings.

The 18-year-old Perrysburg, Ohio product began his tenure in the Soo Friday making 26 stops on 28 shots helping his side earn a victory over visiting Espanola.

One night later he registered his second straight league triumph as he made 32 saves in an Eagles victory over Elliot Lake.

ALEX STORJOHANN, (F) KIRKLAND LAKE GOLD MINERS – Taking to the ice in three contests last week, Storjohann got on the scoresheet in each of them aiding the Gold Miners efforts in picking up five of a possible six points.

The 20-year-old native of Anthem, Ariz., started off by notching the game-winning goal and adding an assist as Kirkland Lake topped Iroquois Falls Friday night.

Saturday evening saw him pick up a helper in the club’s overtime setback at Timmins before he finished off with a pair of assists in a Sunday afternoon win at home against Blind River.

Storjohann is averaging a point-per-game early in his time with the Gold Miners picking up seven in as many outings, including two tallies.

CHRIS MURPHY, (F) SOO EAGLES – Murphy set the tone for the Michigan Soo squad Friday as he piled up a career single-game high five assists as the Eagles soared past the Express at Pullar Stadium.

The 20-year from Livonia, Mich., then helped set-up the game-winner Saturday as Sault Ste. Marie skated to the decision over the Wildcats.

Murphy currently leads the Eagles in offensive production amassing 26 points in 17 games on 10 goals and 16 assists.

His totals also put him in a tie for second overall in NOJHL scoring.
